Bloodshot Vol. 1 Setting the World on Fire, this was the final TPB of the launch titles I read from VEI, as it was the one I was most concerned with quality story-wise. Come to find out I shouldn't have been concerned as it's really good.

Like my other reviews, let's do a little backstory. My first experience with bloodshot was the Rai #0 issue from Nov. 1992, however I didn't get to read it until the Rai TPB which reprinted it. Here we see an unnamed man on life support being released by a young boy from a facility that he has snuck into, this man awakes and kills his captors and escapes the facility. An interesting, albeit unoriginal beginning, however what did differ was this boy was a Geomancer, and this man called Bloodshot has tiny machines in his blood, nanomachines to be precise that can control computers, heal him and control his physiology to allow him to perform superhuman feats of skill and strength. Also in this issue you see that this man was a lynchpin to the Valiant universe from the time in the present to the year 4001. A few months later in Feb 1993, this mystery man known as bloodshot would debut in his own self-titled book to great acclaim and prominence in the valiant universe and become one of the most recognized and favorite characters from the young comics company. He is also one of the few characters to come out of the Birthquake shake up of the original valiant run with the same writer and two of the best artists in the industry at the time, the only problem with the book was the ending which was a cliffhanger, but which had a story that was quite convoluted with a nano-virus and nano-infants, the less said the better.

Now to the 2012 reboot of the character, we find Bloodshot in similar situation as we originally encoutered him being originally.

Bloodshot! The story and art looks amazing. Manuel Garcia and Arturo Lozzi bring so much great talent to the Bloodshot character. When you read this book, you will see Bloodshot's anger and confusion as he tries to find out who and what he has become. Valiant 90's sold over several million copies. In 2012, with Valiant Entertainment, the nanite blood still lives within Bloodshot. The modern Bloodshot keeps the same cory story elements with the 90's story. A one man war machine, anyone who crosses his path better watch out. Pick up this copy and you will be not be dissapointed.

WARNING - this is not your typical anti-hero action title that cares more about shocking you with violence then delivering a great story. Yes - it's action packed and filled with that good old ULTRA VIOLENCE but what really stands it apart from the norm is its attention to story and in particular the fascinating backstory and mysterious origin of one of the coolest action anti-heroes in comics - Bloodshot. Project Rising Spirit created the ultimate killing machine - a technological marvel with his nanite infused bloodstream, Bloodshot is not only able to dominate with brute force and deadly precision but through his ability to become one with the technology that surrounds him - Now if only he could figure out the truth of what and who he truly is... This is a great read!

Bloodshot is a fast action comic that deals with espionage. Bloodshot was created as the ultimate warrior with special cells in his blood that allow him to heal from almost any wound even being blown up. The problem is the Project Rising Spirit is using him and filling him with false memory to do their dirty work. When he finds out the truth, he will make them pay. This book ties in well with Harbinger. Valiant comics is creating a tight universe. You can get in on the ground floor right now with this universe and you will come to recognize that Valiant is something special and a welcomed reprieve from the same ole stuff from the big two (marvel and dc). GET IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR!

Launched as part of the 2012 “Summer of Valiant” initiative, Bloodshot is the story of a man reconstructed into the ultimate soldier… a hybrid of man and machine; his blood replaced with microscopic machines that grant him increased strength and speed, a healing factor capable of handling the worst of injuries or altering his appearance, and the ability to network with and control other machines.

This trade begins with our hero seemingly on a rescue mission for the military into Afghanistan… except for the small fact that everything he was told about this mission is a lie. Not only that, but everything he believes about himself… also a lie. And after a glimpse of the truth is revealed to Bloodshot, well, let’s just say his real employers are none too anxious to have him out of their control, and resolve to bring him back in pieces if need be. The ultimate soldier is about to become the ultimate quarry.

This is, by far, the most brutal books of the Valiant line. There is no fear here in showing the amount of violence that Bloodshot can withstand… something that truly sets this comic apart from others on the stands. The character is a walking engine of destruction, and Valiant is pulling no punches here. They have done an expert job of mixing in characters, themes, and plot devices from the previous two incarnations of Bloodshot, but that is where the similarities end. As with all their comics, Valiant is playing the long game. Do not expect a tidy resolution to the story at the end of this tpb, rather, expect to get sucked into an ongoing story that will continue into the next couple of tpbs and expand into other Valiant comics, as well. Here’s a little tip... do yourself a favor and pickup Valiant’s Harbinger series alongside Bloodshot. It will become obvious in due time…
