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! Plus: The introduction of a major new force in the Valiant pantheon starts here as Bloodshot’s daughter, Jessie, makes her milestone first appearance after an initial cameo in the VALIANT: X-O MANOWAR FCBD SPECIAL, arriving in stores this Free Comic Book Day!
“I think anyone who becomes a parent, their world view instantly changes. [Bloodshot] is no different,” series writer Jeff Lemire told The Washington Post. “Being this character that comes from such a history of violence and has so much violence built into him, I think that would be terrifying. You wouldn’t want to bring that into your child’s life at all. I think that tension is exactly what the book is kind of about.”
Now: In the arms of his beloved girlfriend Magic, Bloodshot has finally found hope for the future…in the form the couple’s unborn child. But when Magic’s estranged family – a cruel and sadistic clan of white supremacist criminals – re-emerge to lay claim to their lost daughter, Bloodshot will be pushed back to the brink of madness, mayhem, and warfare…
Soon: Eight years from today, Bloodshot’s daughter has inherited her father’s incredible abilities. Hunted by a high-tech kill squad called Omen, Jessie must hone her powers…and learn how to survive before the world is swallowed whole by the darkness that now pervades America…
In the wake of X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1, the next great Valiant ICONS launch of 2017 starts here on September 28th in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – an epic and essential turning point for Valiant’s unstoppable soldier! Across 2017, look for FAITH, SHADOWMAN, and HARBINGER WARS 2 to join the ICONS line-up with major new series announcements as the summer continues.
