Milligan and LaRosa Lead Off BLOODSHOT #25 – A 48-Page Anniversary Blowout!
Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of BLOODSHOT #25 – a 48-page anniversary blowout featuring a murderer's row of comics talents from throughout the bullet-riddled history of Valiant's most brutal, most relentless hero!
Meet the man behind Bloodshot – or is he? – when one soldier’s untapped killer instinct takes over in "Bloodshot: The Glitch" – a feature-sized lead tale of blood, guts, and heart by Peter Milligan (Hellblazer) and Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX)!
"With 'Glitch,' Peter has crafted a gripping, action-packed, and psychological take on Bloodshot – and Lewis's pages have only made it that much more devastating," said Bloodshot editor Alejandro Arbona. "This is Lewis's first full-length interior work in almost a decade, and he spent the better part of a year just packing in as much detail and emotion as possible. It's been well worth the wait, and when you see his artwork, you'll see why."
Plus: an all-new Bloodshot tale by comics master Howard Chaykin, and the original launch team of Duane Swierczynski and Manuel García return for a brand new adventure! And don't miss the origin of Bloodshot retold, and even more stories and artwork from Justin Jordan (Spread), Rafer Roberts (X-O Manowar #25), and more, right here in this oversized 48-page giant!
Packed to the rafters with bonus features and artwork, including a complete cover gallery of Bloodshot’s exploits from 1993 to today, the BLOODSHOT #25 anniversary extravaganza also features standard covers by Lewis LaRosa and Al Barrionuevo; incentive variant covers by Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire) and Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates); and a new throwback variant featuring Bloodshot’s original logo and trade dress design by Bloodshot co-creator and comics legend Don Perlin (The Defenders).
Before Bloodshot steps front and center for the THE VALIANT #1 by Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Paolo Rivera in December, Valiant’s most dangerous man-at-arms takes on his biggest assignment yet in BLOODSHOT #25 – arriving in stores on November 5th!
