Valiant is proud to debut the official video trailer and first lettered interior preview for BLOODSHOT REBORN #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the devastating new ongoing series by New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Green Arrow) and visionary storyteller Mico Suayan(HARBINGER, Moon Knight)! On April 15th, start reading here as the VALIANT NEXT initiative reaches its boiling point with an action-packed and unpredictable new vision of Valiant's toughest, most unrelenting hero!
Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing made him the perfect weapon, and he served his masters at Project Rising Spirit – a private contractor trafficking in violence – very well.
Now, Bloodshot is a shadow of his former self. He lives in self-imposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad. But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving headlong into the violence that nearly destroyed him.
“I think [Bloodshot's] a really fascinating character; he’s almost a modern Frankenstien,” writer Jeff Lemire told Entertainment Weekly. “This guy whose life was torn apart and he was turned into a monster, really—the most tragic part being whoever he was before this is lost to him now. He may have had a family. Who knows what his life was like? To me, that’s a very tragic kind of thing, and a very easy thing for a writer to hook into and explore.”
THE VALIANT was only the beginning… On April 15th, discover an all-new beginning for the indestructible man-turned-machine at the center of the Valiant Universe as all-star creators Jeff Lemireand Mico Suayan unleash a gripping new odyssey of destruction, death, and darkness in BLOODSHOT REBORN #1!
