Bloodshot’s mission to stop rogue super soldiers takes him to Howl, Michigan, where dangerous levels of radiation have seeped into the town.

No matter what happens, there’s going to be fallout!

Review: Bloodshot Unleashed #1

Bloodshot Unleashed #1

Dangerous super soldiers and bloodthirsty living weapons have mysteriously escaped into the world to wreak havoc across the dying towns and forgotten farms of America. Now, Bloodshot must take up arms again to travel across the country hunting down these violent monsters, battling his own demons, and defending the most defenseless. Deniz Camp and Jon Davis-Hunt join forces to unleash Valiant Entertainment’s first Mature Readers, Bloodshot Unleashed #1, a title that puts the BLOOD in BLOODSHOT.

Valiant’s offerings over the last couple of years have been somewhat hit and miss with the fans, and while I’ve enjoyed what they’ve been putting out on the whole, I understand that not every reader has been as fond of the recent offerings. That said, Bloodshot Unleashed is a book that feels like the earlier offerings from Valiant Entertainment; there’s a bit of ambiguity in what Bloodshot has been doing, an acknowledgement that he’s been manipulated and used in the past, and a tacit understanding that he’s going to be manipulated and used again in the future if certain agencies have the opportunity to do so. This book’s plot reminds me a little of the plot of Ninja K from a few years back in the premise; retired super soldiers seek revenge for the way they’ve been treated – only this time there’s a lot more bullets than blades involved (thus far at least).

Deniz Camp structures the book into an almost one and done story that’ll either capture the reader’s attention or it won’t; for new readers this is a pretty decent introduction that doesn’t require in depth knowledge of the character’s previous exploits and long term fans will find something refreshing in the action interspersed with plot building flashbacks. Jon Davis-Hunt‘s artwork is exactly what I was hoping it would be; detailed, exciting and easy to follow. There’s no attempt to shy away from the results of a mad super soldier, but nor does Davis-Hunt go over board in what’s shown. Coupled with Jordie Bellaire‘s colours, and this book is one pretty looking bag of violence.

As an introduction to the character, this is as good a place as any to start; I mean, really when it comes to an action book, there’s not much more that you can be looking for. Bloodshot Unleashed #1 is a bloody fine comic.

Bloodshot Unleashed #1

Valiant reveals a much different future for the publisher

Bloodshot Unleashed

A recent press release from Valiant hyping the upcoming Bloodshot Unleashed wasn’t exciting for what it said, it raised eyebrows for what it didn’t and what it hinted at.

The publisher is currently going through some rocky times though specifics seem scarce and it looks like those issues are impacting the publisher’s release schedule. In recent months releases have been scarce, far less than the usual release schedule pre-pandemic and during some of it. The publisher will now move putting out one release per month according to CBR. Reading in between the lines of Valiant’s press release, this lines up with much of what’s danced around.

Writer Steve Foxe announced on Twitter that Archer & Armstrong Forever #4 would be the last issue of the series. Not the original plan, the series was solicited through #6. According to Foxe, “plans changed” leading to the unfinished series.

With that series no longer being released, Valiant’s next release will be Blooshot Unleahsed, an adults-only series from writer Deniz Camp and artist Jon Davis-Hunt. It’ll come to shops on September 21st with issues coming out monthly. It’s planned for four issues.

That means the recently released Book of Shadows will be pushed back. The first issue from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Vicente Cifuentes was released in July. The next issue won’t see print until January 2023, a six month gap. X-O Manowar Unconquered by Becky Cloonan, Michael W. Conrad and Liam Sharp will then launch in March 2023. That comic was originally scheduled for December 2022.

Also awaiting release is Eternal Warrior: Scorched Earth, an original graphic novel Kickstarted in December and expected to be released in November 2022. That project raised a little over $55,000 from 531 individuals and the latest update said the graphic novel was on schedule. This was before the recent issues which has caused individuals to go to the comments of the project voicing their concerns.

The publisher seems to be having a rough time of late finding its footing. Staff has left and the company itself has dipped its toes into the digital world with NFTs and other “get rich quick” pivots. Licensing has increased with shoes and an upcoming toy line but from the outside it looks to be a company attempting to find its way throwing darts and seeing what lands.
