I thought it was good. Not super but a good read.
I kinda skipped the parts we seen in previous issues I understood the premise pretty quickly.
It was cool to see. But why... why introduce future bloodshot hopefully its not just zip back to the present because it wasnt explored.
This feels to me like someone has taken the books and re rote them to slow stuff down on purpous. Just like hw2 was 4 issues but now is 6. There is nothing in this comic that has weight. And really not much has happened since were at the first book now. Its like a super slow telling of a few days. And magic gave up on bloodshot so quick. How long were they hiding. A week. How long has bloodshot been in the dead side.
Dmg is sucking balls and ruining the charaters we love well for myself.
2.25 out of 5 wtf is the point entertaimos

Agreed with last post. Fun, good, not great. The rest of the series really didn't set this up emotionally to feel like much. It went on an introspective bent and then this went kinda all over the map. I frankly prefer this issue with Bloodshot as it feels a little more like the character sorta promises a book will be, but overall there's something missing. Character development, change, something emotional. I still rather enjoyed this particular 22 pages.

Solid read, clever how Lemire takes it full circle to the start of Salvation. Only criticism is that it repeated a bit too much of the early issues, not sure we needed quite that much. I enjoyed the moral dilemma with Bloodshot having to decide on killing that fella after seeing him on the phone to his family, didn’t think he’d actually do it ...then BLAMM!! :o

Braithwaite’s art was pretty good, particularly like how he draws Punk Mambo.

Only 1 issue left, can’t say I know what’s coming in the finale and that’s a good thing.

4/5 - enjoyable stuff

I'm loving this arc and the issue is great!

I am kind of wondering if they are fulfilling some of the future stuff we saw in the BoD Bloodshot issue. Now we've seen him fighting dinosaurs, so that can be checked off the list. Then I thought he was gonna kill Bloodhound, so we could eventually have his final scene where he sits exhausted in 4002 and befriends another dog. I suppose that could still happen.

There are so many spinning plates right now. This is great stuff!

I need to go back and re-read but my earlier impression was that this issue felt like a re-read of parts of the story told in the previous issues...
