Heroes aren’t born. They’re built.

You have no name, just a project designation. They call you Bloodshot, but the voices inside your head call you “daddy, “sir,” “commander,” “comrade” – whatever it takes to motivate you to get the job done. But after so many missions and so many lives, you’re finally ready to confront your handlers at Project Rising Spirit and find out who you really are. You’d better move quickly though, because your former masters don’t like it when a billion-dollar weapons project decides to go rogue. Can you discover the truth before their next deadly mind wipe takes you off the board more

    Writer Duane Swierczynski has been on fire with Bloodshot . It's fast paced, brutal and has a genuinely interesting plot that continues to slowly unfold. The $3.99 cover price might be off-putting for some, but I assure you it's worth every penny. Read Full Review

    If you have not checkout out Bloodshot yet, this is the perfect chance with a mere three issues out. Less then ten bucks (if you buy the digital versions) will get you caught up on one of the best new series of the year and will probably make you a Valiant universe fan. Money well spent.

    Despite two pencillers (Manuel Garcia and Arturo Lozzi), the art has a crisp and consistent feel to it thanks to inker Matt Ryan. Read Full Review

    It's going to be interesting to see where Swierczynski takes this series in the issues to come, especially now that he's unleashed a Project Rising Spirit “plan B” to kill Bloodshot. Remember that girl at the end of issue 2? Yeah, she's apparently being held against her will–if you didn't gather that from her restraints–and she is definitely not somebody you want to f#$% with and there's no love loss between her and her captures that's for damn sure. Go read this issue, out this Wednesday, before I give too much away. It's a good build-up issue that foreshadows a lot of possibilities and answers for the future of Bloodshot so don't miss it.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Sep 5, 2012

    Manuel Garcia and Arturo Lozzi handle pencil duties, and, for the most part, they do it well. While some pages look better than others, none of it looks bad. Bloodshot's expressions can be hard to read at times, but given the fact that he is confused as hell most of the book that's probably an intentional detail. This book looks best when it's firing on all cylinders and Bloodshot is tearing dudes to pieces, so I look forward to the next issue when we hopefully get to see more of that. Read Full Review
