First Look: Lemire, LaRosa & Suayan Open “THE BOOK OF REVENGE” in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #3

Valiant presents the first lettered look inside BLOODSHOT SALVATION #3 – the next harrowing chapter of the BLOCKBUSTER ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Black Hammer) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN)! On November 15th, “THE BOOK OF REVENGE” continues as Ray Garrison confronts a deranged zealot connected to his own family’s dark past…even as his wife and daughter find themselves hunt by the brutal powerhouse called Rampage!


In the footsteps of X-O MANOWAR and SECRET WEAPONS, the next sold-out series from Valiant's ICONS initiative brings down the hammer this fall with an action-packed and unrelenting new chapter for Valiant's machine-made soldier!

Now: When Magic’s estranged family of sadistic cultists come to take her back home, Ray Garrison is forced to succumb to the rage within and protect his family against those who would do them harm. But as Magic’s bizarre relatives reveal their true intentions – including those of the demented leader called “Daddy” – the man once known as Bloodshot will quickly discover that the path to revenge is one filled with dire and deadly consequences…


Soon: Years from today – in a world gone wrong where Bloodshot long ago went M.I.A. – can Magic and Jessie navigate the agents of OMEN that now pursue them across the heartland? And just when their darkest hour arrives, a familiar face is about to appear with a helping hand…and a message from beyond the grave!


On November 15th, master storytellers Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa, and Mico Suayan barrel forward with the next must-read chapter in Valiant’s punishing crusade of violence, villains, and vengeance as “THE BOOK OF REVENGE” continues, only in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #3 – featuring covers by Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Monika Palosz (X-O MANOWAR), Jay Anacleto (Marvels: Eye of the Camera), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), and comics legend Neal Adams (Batman)!


But first: Bloodshot’s most brutal mission yet charges forward in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #2! On October 25th, Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa and Mico Suayan wrench Ray Garrison back into the destructive ways he left behind for a soul-shattering mission to save his wife and daughter from a gallery of terrifying new threats…



Then: In the wake of BLOODSHOT SALVATION's sold-out debut, Valiant ICONS continues throughout the winter with two all-new, explosive monthly series from the premier creative talents in comics today: NINJA-K #1 by renowned writer Christos Gage (Netflix's Daredevil) and superstar artist Tomás Giorello (X-O MANOWAR), on sale November 15th; and QUANTUM AND WOODY!

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.


BONEHEAD #2   
Writer: Bryan Edward Hill Artist: Rhoald Marcellius, Sakti Yuwono Letterer: Jaka Ady Graphics: Comolo Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 31, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score:★★★★☆ (4/5)
After a thrilling video game-like first issue, issue two gives way to the brothers Kray. Aleph is a tech scientist examining the unconscious "56" and marveling at his abilities. He reminds him when his brother Hideki roamed the city as the vigilante Blackdeath. Hideki is a Gladiator (cop) now and he questions Aleph's methods with 56 and its legalities. Nonetheless, they need 56 to be free on the streets for now so they can monitor him. The brothers c…

The Best Comics of 2017

It's that time of year again. What comics site is complete without an obligatory "Best of 2017" list? No doubt it's been a crazy year in so many ways and the comic book industry is no different. But instead of concentrating on the scandals and controversies all that matters is the fruit of so many talented peoples' labor who've produced some amazing stories. These are just some of the best independent comics of 2017.


DISCLAIMER: [Editor's Note] Spartantown relies on the generosity of independent comic book publishers to provide review copies in order to post reviews. Thanks to companies like Image Comics, Valiant Entertainment, Archie Comics, Dynamite Comics, Black Mask Studios, Action Lab, and occasionally others, I've had access to some wonderful stories that otherwise I would have missed. I don't get review copies from mainstream publishers like DC Comics and Marvel so this "Best of..." list is far from comprehensive but a good sample …
