    Like I said, this is a great jumping on point if you've ever been curious about BLOODSHOT. It's essentially a 101 for who he is, what his nanites can do for him and why Project Rising Spirit is clearly a conspiracy filled and twisted organization. Month after month I look forward to this book because I know it delivers the goods when it comes to insane popcorn entertainment and a well-executed plot. I'm anxious for next month's issue so we can jump back to the present and see how the modern day Harbingers react to "the Boogeyman." Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Christopher Romero Jan 17, 2013

    The creators of this title pay careful attention to their work, and it shows. Bloodshot is one of the best titles out right now, not only among Valiant titles, but among all publishers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jan 16, 2013

    A great book amongst a host of great books currently being published by Valiant Comics, Bloodshot is a must read, especially with Harbinger Wars (which will be a must read itself for Valiant fans as well as fans of great comics) on the horizon! Read Full Review

    On top of that, we now have a good idea as to why Bloodshot and Harbinger are going to clash, or at least parts of them. This comic is completely foreshadowing that. So, if you're interested in that upcoming story-arc, this comic is a must read. If you want an entertaining comic, then that's another solid reason to pick this one up. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Jan 21, 2013

    On the surface, Bloodshot is a familiar title: big hero, big guns, along with big violence. Yet, the constant questioning of what is reality and what is programming gives this series a distinct feel and makes it a worthy addition to Valiant's, so far, eminently readable revival.

    Bloodshot is violently beautiful and has a fascinating story that is worth following every month. Issue #7 isnt the book that it could be, but Valiant junkies definitely need this issue. Its setting things up for the future of the Valiant universe and Bloodshots role in it. Next months issue is going right back to the main plot, so the future is looking very bright. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kenneth Bowden Jan 16, 2013

    With the seeds planted in this issue and the actual event not kicking off until around Bloodshot #10, my faith is reinstated. The connection built here just makes perfect sense as to what Bloodshot and Psiots have in common, but also there is ample time to develop that before "Harbinger Wars" begins. With those two facts in mind I am definitely looking forward to what Valiant has in store for us this spring. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Joe Sarnicola Jan 22, 2013

    This is one of my favorite comics by Valiant or anybody else. I could never take Superman very seriously because not many things can hurt him. Bloodshot is almost indestructible, yet completely vulnerable at the same time. Thats what I call conflict. Read Full Review
