Story again goes to terribleness and I'm completely done with the blue, red, or fire color scheme.

This just isn’t very good!

The basic premise for this series seems weak to begin with, Bloodshot wants to make up for his past actions by ‘doing random stuff’ to help people? :?

The dialogue is poor in places and the stories are just so tedious. Lots of explosions and guns doesn’t necessarily = exciting stories, in fact quite the opposite.

Art, aside from bring Rob Lifeld-esque and 1990’s, too many panels were unclear and I 2as losing the thread of an already dull book.

2/5 - disastrous timing of such a weak Bloodshot book coinciding with the new Bloodshot movie. The ‘Valiant’ curse strikes again facepalm

It may be random to the rest of the VU but for Bloodshot going after a bio-engineering group of the People's Liberation Army, headquartered in Urumqi, that turns innocent people into mindless monsters, seems to be a good choice really.

And Booth's bloody freak show....absolutely love it!

4/5
