    The next release is this fall, and it will be the official first issue of the new series. This little teaser definitely leaves the reader wanting a bigger bite, yearning for that official release. The artwork, as seen consistently with Valiant Comics, gives those perfect dramatic frames you always want to see with your super characters.

    The Free Comic Book Day special also includes an interview with each writer, which serves as another way to hook you into the upcoming stories (as if the two preludes weren't enough). If this wasn't free, I'd tell you to go buy it. Read Full Review

    Both stories feature art from two of the most visually exciting artists around; Tomas Giorello and Juan Jose Ryp on the first and second story, respectively.

The effect of this is that despite there being two distinct art styles within the book, they're both wonderful to look at and each artist adds a lot to the story despite the reduced page count.

    Fans of either Bloodshot or Rai should get enough out of this book to whet their appetite for the main series. For others, the need for yet another new Bloodshot book may confuse the impartial reader. Read Full Review
