First Look: BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 Coming in September from Lemire, LaRosa and Suayan

BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – Cover by Ryan Bodenheim

As revealed last week at the third annual #ValiantSummit in Los Angeles, Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the BLOCKBUSTER NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Moon Knight) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN, SAVAGE) & Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN)! On September 27th, to protect his true love and newborn daughter from the forces that made him a walking weapon, Valiant’s machine-made soldier will be forced to run his most dangerous mission yet…and begin a harrowing gauntlet of revenge and bloodshed that will forever redefine the course of Bloodshot’s present and future… 

Spanning two timelines – the present day (with art by LaRosa) and the future (with art by Suayan) –  Jeff Lemire’s best-selling, critically adored Bloodshot epic explodes with an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – featuring the essential introduction of Jessie, Bloodshot’s daughter and a new force in the Valiant Universe, following her first cameo appearance in the upcoming VALIANT: X-O MANOWAR FCBD SPECIAL, in stores this Free Comic Book Day!

Now: In the arms of his beloved girlfriend Magic, Bloodshot has finally found hope for the future…in the form of the couple’s unborn child. But when Magic’s estranged family – a cruel and sadistic clan of homegrown 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…

“[BLOODSHOT SALVATION] marks a big shift for Bloodshot. He is now a parent, and his mission and focus shifts to protecting Jessie from all the various factions hunting her,” writer Jeff Lemire told IGN. “SALVATION will build off of everything I did in Reborn, but it will not retread the same themes or events. It breaks new ground and takes the character on a whole new journey." 

On September 27th, the circle of time envelops Bloodshot’s present and future…and the fate of Valiant’s hard-fought hero runs red as Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa, and Mico Suayan ready a punishing jumping-on point for the most devastating superhero saga in comics today. Bloodshot – and the child he’d do anything to protect – leap into the firefight of their lives when one of 2017’s most anticipated new series begins in full force in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – featuring covers by Ryan Bodenheim (NINJAK, The Dying & The Dead) and Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates, Superman)!

Plus: Don’t miss the rest of Valiant’s major “ICONS” launches throughout 2017 with an all-new wave of ongoing series, prestige format projects and standalone events spanning the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes and top talents! Out of the record-setting success of X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 – the year’s best-selling series debut from any independent publisher – “ICONS” will continue throughout the year with one major new series launch each month, featuring the publisher’s most enduring heroes:

ADVANCE REVIEW: 'Winnebago Graveyard' #1 by Steve Niles, Alison Sampson, and Stéphane Paitreau

Steve Niles and Alison Sampson have arrived to disrupt your bedtime. What happens when an American family traveling on vacation finds themselves stranded in a small town with a sinister secret? The answer is a whole lot of creepy.


WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD #1 (OF 4) Story: Steve Niles Art / Cover: Aditya Bidikar, Alison Sampson, Jordie Bellaire, Stéphane Paitreau Variant Cover: Mingjue Helen Chen Published: June 14, 2017 Diamond ID: APR170724 Digital : $3.99 Print: $3.99
★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Niles wastes no time in setting the tone of  this limited horror series 'Winnebago Graveyard.' A couple is abducted by people in hooded robes and are sacrificed during some kind of satanic ceremony that gives birth to something I can't explain here. You'll have to see it for yourselves. Then we're introduced to our protagonists, the dysfunctional family traveling via the titular Winnebago. They make the same mistake every person in a horror does, they stay at the creepiest locations instead …

REVIEW: 'Samaritan: Veritas' #1 by Matt Hawkins, Atilio Rojo, and Troy Peteri

Born out of The Tithe, 'Samaritan: Veritas,' takes on a whole new target as hacker Samantha Copeland is on the run and looking for revenge. It's a thrilling new chapter from Top Cow's Edenverse written by Matt Hawkins with art from Atilio Rojo.


SAMARITAN #1 Story: Matt Hawkins Art / Lettering / Cover: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Published: May 24, 2017 Diamond ID: MAR170694 Digital : $3.99 Print: $3.99
★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Tithe found Samaritan taking on nefarious mega-churches and this time the only things more corrupt are the U.S. government and military contractors. The President is in Samantha's crosshairs but she's also a hunted woman using all her hacking skills and the resources of the dark web to counter her pursuers. It's this complex cat-and-mouse game that Hawkins unfolds while also providing Samantha's background for new readers. Hawkins does a delicate balancing act adding exposition with flashbacks while moving the story forward in the prese…

REVIEW: 'Romulus' #4 by Bryan Hill, Nelson Blake II, and Kevin Lennertz

Ashlar finds herself in the belly of the beast. She's got to go through Achilles to try and rescue Nicholas from the clutches of the leader of The Order of Romulus. Will the end of this story arc be the end of Ashlar?

Her journey comes to this final showdown and it doesn't disappoint.
Without giving away the exciting conclusion, Hill delivers a tense confrontation that fl…
