Review: Bloodshot Reborn #0
Perhaps the most important issue in Jeff Lemire’s continuing Bloodshot epic. Don’t miss this very special story…as we unveil a shocking new revelation in the Bloodshot saga. The next chapter of Bloodshot starts here!
This zero issue of Bloodshot Reborn serves as a bridge between Bloodshot USA and the next chapter in the Bloodshot saga, Bloodshot Salvation which makes it pretty essential reading for fans of the character as it sets the direction for what comes next for our favorite red-eyed killing machine. But as much as the issue sets the scene for Bloodshot’s future, it also serves as a fantastic epilogue to the previously mentioned series, tying a bow on a couple of plot points left somewhat unresolved from that miniseries.
There’s a multitude of reasons for you to pick this up – whether you’re a new or returning reader looking for a jumping on point, or you’re already invested in the series, then you’ll find a solid comic book here. It’s not great, and honestly, it suffers a little from serving as the bridge between two series. After reading the issue it doesn’t feel like the comic has anything new to say – and yet what it does say, and this is almost contrary to my last sentence, it is said in a very complete manner.
Although there’s nothing here that fans won’t be expecting, especially if you’re aware of the premise of the upcoming Bloodshot upcoming Bloodshot Salvation series, it’s still a very good comic.
It’s just not required reading if you’re already invested in the series.
