About Bloodshot #1

Post by omega_override »

For the longest time I've had an issue with Barry Windsor-Smith's artwork for the Chronium decal on the front of Bloodshot #1 (and I suppose for the mini-poster inside as well).

I like his artwork, but I don't necessarily think it's his best stuff :?
If anything, it seemed like an attempt to persuade people who were already enamored with Image to buy it

It also feels somewhat insulting to the wonderful artwork by Don Perlin

He's done better, but I really like the cover (it sure helped sell a lot of issues). Loved most of his stuff with Valiant, but never cared much for his Rune art.

Before I knew anything about Valiant, I had thought that the character was a rambo style vampire.

Hmm.. guess his Rune character makes more sense now...
