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?
