What the hell was that about?!? :? You know it’s a hot mess when you flip back and forth between pages but still don’t know what going on?

This is reaching Rising Spirit levels of bad. Pull the plug Valiant!

1.5/5

I don't know if I would say it was terrible, but half of the issue was pretty confusing, honestly. I would really like it if the Booth would clean up the pencils a little bit. I know this is like the style they're going for or whatever, but coupled with the nonsensical plot, it's really hard to figure out what's going on sometimes. 3/5

Yeah, when Bloodshot by speared through the mouth and out through the back of his head, that was poor art. The size of the head of the spear was bigger than Bloodshot’s mouth yet there was no damage to his mouth, it just perfectly fit?!? facepalm

Also, the Psiot made his entire skin explode from his body but he repaired within seconds? I think Seeley is not following continuity on how Bloodshot’s powers work.

When the art isn't saddled by the blue, red, or fire color scheme, it is really entertaining. Flawed, but entertaining. But fun art can't overcome absolute trash writing, which this is. Oh, and nice editing too - "He's grows bigger..." 2/5

As bad as Rising Spirit was, at least I understood what that series was trying to do. There's somehow even less direction to this series.

I think Booth's art is a heavy distraction from just how bad the (lack of) story is here.

If you liked Fallen World then Rai 3 & 4 has been a good read.

Same page as everyone... I'm generally a big Tim Seeley fan he's a good guy just not sure what went on here at all.
My super-successfully crowdfunded debut comic, Flying Sparks: https://www.amazon.com/Flying-Sparks-Jo ... 9527303419 is now up on Amazon! The story of a hero and villain dating under their secret identities. Worlds collide!
