Media Release — Valiant is proud to announce that BLOODSHOT REBORN #0 – the milestone turning point for one of Valiant’s biggest icons – has sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves everywhere with the BLOODSHOT REBORN #0 SECOND PRINTING on May 3rd! Join New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Bloodshot U.S.A., Moon Knight) and explosive artist Renato Guedes (Wolverine) here as they present a crucial standalone tale that closes the book on BLOODSHOT REBORN…and sets the stage for BLOODSHOT SALVATION – an ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES beginning in September that will forever recast the destiny of Ray Garrison and the man once known as Bloodshot!
FIRST: RAY GARRISON! THE BLOODSHOT SQUAD! DEATHMATE! PROJECT RISING SPIRIT! AND INTRODUCING…THE SCARRED MAN! In the searing aftermath of BLOODSHOT U.S.A., perhaps the most important tale in Jeff Lemire’s continuing Bloodshot epic can finally be told right here with a standalone coda bringing the biggest trial of Bloodshot’s violent life to a close…and unleashing a shocking new revelation that will upset the balance of power in the Valiant Universe for all time. The next chapter of Bloodshot starts here!
THEN: A bloody and vengeful new era for Bloodshot begins this September in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of A BLOCKBUSTER NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Bloodshot Reborn, Moon Knight) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn) & Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn)! Ray Garrison has escaped his violent past to build the one thing he never thought he’d earn: a family. But when a hateful secret from his true love’s past threatens their fragile peace, Bloodshot will be forced to run headlong into a barrage of blood, bullets, and broken bones for a revenge-fueled assault that will have crushing consequences for those he holds most dear…
Set in two timelines – the present day (with art by LaRosa) and the future (with art by Suayan) – Jeff Lemire’s epic saga begins anew in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1! Look for more information to be revealed on Monday, April 17th at the third annual #ValiantSummit – broadcasting live from Twitch TV’s Hyper RPG studios in Los Angeles, CA.
