Publisher’s Summary: “’The Long Shot’ starts here! All aboard as Bloodshot faces off against ghoulish monsters on a bullet train to the heart of darkness! High-speed thrills and blood-curdling chills lurk behind every turn in 2019’s best new action series!”
At the end of the last issue a strike team from “The Burned” organization pulled Bloodshot from the clutches of Blackbar and General Gayle. His introduction to this collection of a bunch of fired spies and other resources is a mission to save another exploited super soldier science experiment gone wrong. What he doesn’t know is that it is just as dangerous trying to do good as it was when he was a tool of the bad guys. Maybe this time he won’t be exploited.
Tim Seeley has made Bloodshot more than just a brutal machine-man weapon of mass destruction. He continues to fill Bloodshot with at least some of the compassion and humanity that was cruelly taken from him. This is also a story with the right kind of action, genuine heroics and enough heartfelt introspection, but not too much. Not to worry, there are plenty of epic fight scenes, whether he battles fellow outcasts, hideous monsters or cruel government agencies.
This time Bloodshot is definitely with the good guys, probably, maybe, and he intends to take full advantage of the opportunities they provide to scrape out his brand of justice.
The Bottom Line
Bloodshot is a full-on vengeful and compassionate superhero who is as likely to stop bullets with his body as he is to tear an opponent’s throat out with his bare hand.
