Jeff Lemire & Raul Allen BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 First Look!

June 26th, 20150 Comments »

You can’t keep a good thing a secret!  August fifth, Valiant Comics will release Bloodshot Reborn #5 to shelves.  In an interview with Comic Book Resources’ Steve Sunu as saying:

Really, this story — it’s really tough to discuss — but it’s very different than anything that’s ever been done with Bloodshot and I can honestly say it’s very different than anything I’ve ever written before as well. It’s unlike any of my other projects. There’s a real noir sense to it, it’s dark, there’s some black humor for sure. There’s a surreal element to it — it’s a pretty wild book. I’ve got to give credit to [Valiant Editor-in-Chief] Warren [Simons], he’s really letting me go for it. [Laughs] I’m taking some chances on this one and, so far, I think the results have been really good.”

He goes on to say: “It really feels like so far the Bloodshot scripts I’ve done on top of (Artist)Mico’s work that this is some of, if not the best, work I’ve done.

Bring it Jeff, Bring it Raul!

In the meantime, while we add that to our pull list for the month of August, have a sneak peek into Jeff and Raul’s Bloodshot Reborn.  Unadulterated, 100% Bloodshot-branded visuals spanning in scale, Raul Allen doesn’t lose focus and keeps a focused presence at the same damn time!

BSRB_005_VARIANT_QR-VOICE_FABARESOn August 5th, Bloodshot and his lil’ buddy Bloodsquirt are teaming up for a mind-bending jumping-on point unlike anything else on the stands!
Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 – an essential standalone issue at the heart of the year’s critically acclaimed new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Descender) and special guest artist Raul Allen (Hawkeye)! Enter the hallucinatory world of Bloodshot’s demented cartoon sidekick as Bloodsquirt takes charge for trip into a realm beyond our own reality…a realm populated by other dark reflections of the Valiant’s greatest heroes…a realm that some dare to call the Squirtverse!
The memories of the thousands of people he killed as Bloodshot aren’t the only things that haunt Ray Garrison. For months now, the specter of the Geomancer and a nightmarish cartoon known as BSRB_005_COVER-B_SUAYANBloodsquirt have tormented him at every turn. First, on his television…and now in the real world…where Bloodsquirt acts out twisted fantasies that darkly mirror Bloodshot’s own violent past. Are these apparitions real or a just figment of Bloodshot’s broken psyche? And just who are the other members of Bloodsquirt’s “Squirt Squad”…and what could they possibly be planning next?
Don’t be glum, chum…because, on August 5th, Bloodshot and his bloody little buddy Bloodsquirt are locked, loaded, and ready for action in BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 – featuring covers by Raul Allen (RAI), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), and Kano (THE DELINQUENTS)!
