Bloodshot's now moving in a whole new direction under co-writers Christos Gage and Joshua Dysart (started with #14), but in the event you missed out on what Duane Swierczynski did with the character back when Valiant relaunched him, we're now giving you a chance to get into it! Valiant has been generous enough to provide us with Bloodshot's debut issue in all of us graphic glory. Now you can see where it all began for the super-soldier who's trying to discover his true identity. If you're not a big fan of violence, you may want to back out now. For everyone else: enjoy!
Also, don't forget Bloodshot is in our latest 'Battle of the Week!'
Your name is Angelo Mortalli. Your brother is trapped behind enemy lines and on the verge of — no. That’s not right. Your name is Raymond Garrison. You’ve retired from the dangers of the field, but a desperate plea from your oldest friend plunges you into a vicious firefight that — no. That’s not right, either. You are Bloodshot. You are the shade of gray that freedom requires. The perfect confluence of military necessity and cutting-edge technology. A walking WikiLeaks that is a reservoir of dirty secrets that could set the world on fire. And you’ve just been captured.
