An engaging thriller, Bloodshot Salvation:#10 (Valiant Entertainment) delivers dynamic action loaded with wicked fun for its all-new arc. New readers should definitely pick up this kickoff issue of the latest Bloodshot arc.
Two thousand years in the future – in the year 4001 A.D. – the man once known as Ray Garrison is no more…but the microscopic nanites inside him live on. Enter Bloodshot 4001 – a strange, gunslinging echo of Bloodshot’s mind, body, and soul that is now more machine than man. But when our century’s Bloodshot finds himself delivered to the dawn of the 41st century with one last mission to fulfill, two Valiant legends will finally come face to face…
Here are 5 reasons why you should get Bloodshot Salvation #10:

Baby Jessie – Bloodshot’s infant daughter – was being transformed into his own terrible image. Bloodshot sought to undo by striking a demonic pact to save Jessie’s life. In the underworld known as the Deadside, Bloodshot did the unthinkable to change her existence.
4) The Book Of Revelations!
In a shocking twist, writer Jeff Lemire transforms Jessie from an infant to a pre-teen adolescent. To underline the family theme, Jessie is far from her father and longs for their reunion. Bloodshot finds himself in the future, trying to figure out how to escape the apocalypse. Letterer Simon Bowland gives Bloodhound’s dialogue something different when the dog speaks.
3) The Artwork!
Artist Doug Braiwaite highlights the loneliness and sadness in Jessie’s expressive closeups. You can tell the emotional toll is having an effect on the child’s innocence. Notice how Jessie is able to say so much with her eyes, especially since there are no eyeballs.
2) The Colors!
I love the absurd humor that comes out from Bloodshot and Bloodhound’s buddy/comedy adventure! Notice how colorist Jordie Bellaire heightens the sun’s orange tones in the desert landscape.
1) A Great Read!
