In Bloodshot we trust!
Today, Valiant Entertainment gives us a first look at BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #1, the first issue in a new stand alone event that kicks off on October 26th.
Featuring the art of Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice) and written by New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Moon Knight, Old Man Logan), BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #1 begins as an unstoppable virus transforms all the people of New York City into killing machines.
Project Rising Spirit – America’s greatest exporter of classified weapons technology – has achieved a breakthrough: a contagious, airborne nanite dispersion prototype that can turn the population of any city into an army of indestructible soldiers. A doomsday virus capable of destroying an enemy nation from the inside out. A machine-made pathogen that can completely rewrite human physiology…and hardcode every man, woman, and child with the same cutting-edge technology that created their greatest weapon: Bloodshot.
But now…Project Rising Spirit’s top-secret contagion has been released onto the streets of America’s greatest metropolis: New York City. As mayhem engulfs Manhattan, Bloodshot must lead the most dangerous invasion ever waged on American soil and keep a runaway pandemic from toppling armies and governments…and threatening to destroy humanity itself.
Here’s an early peak at some of the artwork. Be sure to click on any of the below images to bring up the slideshow and the option to check out the art in full size.
BLOODSHOT U.S.A.#1 is October’s entry in Valiant Entertainment’s “The Future of Valiant” campaign that will extend throughout 2016 with the introduction of seven series that they hope will firmly establish “Valiant’s place as the premier publisher of creative storytelling in comics today.”
