They call you Project Bloodshot, but you had a real name once.

You were born, raised, maybe even loved. And at some point, some evil bastards filled your head with dozens of false memories to motivate you, restrain you, control you. And oh, what they made you do in the name of national security… But what if one of those memories wasn’t false? What if you had a real wife and a child somewhere in the world who thought you were dead? Wouldn’t you go through seven kinds of violent hell to find them? Congrats. Your wish is about to be granted…

    It is easy to see why the comic community is so excited about the relaunched Valiant line, they have all been top notch and this issue of Bloodshot is just as good as the rest of them. When I was finished with the last page I was already looking forward to the next issue and if that is not what comic books are all about, then what is? Read Full Review

    This series is fantastic. The story is intriguing and the art compliments the action well. I really love what Valiant is doing and Bloodshot #4 is a great example of their ability to put out the best books every month. Read Full Review

    While I still don't like my comics to be $3.99, in the month or so since last getting new current Valiant issues, I've realized that "classic" Valiant issues were higher-priced than most of their getting these now on the same level as a standard Marvel is a bit less irksome than it would otherwise be. As this does seem to be the final issue of the first arc, I'd suggest grabbing the first three issues as well before jumping into this, or jump in with the next issue and presumably new arc while waiting for the collected edition of this arc. In general, this is a very solid issue, enjoyable and leaves me looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    This is always the easy part. It goes like this. If you like comic books and you can read, you should pick up Valiant‘s Bloodshot. See, pretty easy. Read Full Review

    This is a more action focused issue as Bloodshot focuses in on his mission to figure out his past. It's a bridge issue taking the initial set up of the first three issues and moving onto the greater story. It's interesting so far, but not quite as good as I think it could be. Read Full Review

    A lot of the books emotional impact is conveyed through the facial expressions of the characters. Read Full Review
