A Lettered Preview Debut of 4001 A.D.: Bloodshot #1 – Coming in June from Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite
Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of 4001 A.D.: Bloodshot #1 – an explosive new adventure launching directly out of the pages of the summer’s blockbuster crossover event and into an essential standalone one-shot from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire and Valiant-exclusive superstar Doug Braithwaite! On June 8th, the future will be written in blood, bullets, and bombshells when Valiant’s unstoppable soldier wages war on the forces of 4001 A.D.! As Rai’s insurrection against the tyrannical A.I. called Father and the kingdom of New Japan escalates, Project Rising Spirit’s most lethal creation will rise from the ashes of history to fight one final battle that will shake the 41st century to its core!
Centuries ago, Bloodshot was the man called Ray Garrison. Now, in the year 4001 A.D., Ray Garrison is no more…but the nanites that once thrived inside him endure still. With their master long since gone, the microscopic machines that once drove Bloodshot through every firefight, healed every wound, and calculated every outcome have one final directive left to execute…but what could it possibly be? And how will the forces of the future react when the infamous man-turned-machine called Bloodshot returns to fight another day?
