Valiant ( April)

With some dra­matic de­vel­op­ments in store for him in March’s con­clu­sion to The Valiant, it’s a very dif­fer­ent Blood­shot who will be the fo­cus of Sweet Tooth cre­ator Jeff Lemire’s first solo Valiant out­ing. Like a cy­ber­net­i­cally en­hanced ver­sion of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, the for­mer sol­dier’s re­gen­er­a­tive abil­i­ties, su­per- strength and for­mi­da­ble sonic scream are de­rived from the nanites in his blood­stream. A pale shadow of his for­mer self, he goes to ground but re- emerges af­ter be­ing linked to a rash of shoot­ings by Blood­shot lookalikes. Mostly il­lus­trated by Mico Suayan, though Lemire will also be con­tribut­ing some in­trigu­ing but un­spec­i­fied in­te­rior art.

Ro­mance in store for the cy­ber­netic sol­dier?
