Review

“Your concern is well considered, my dear. But the answer is simple. Bloodshot was possessed of great guilt. His guilt had made him a prisoner. We’ve freed him.”

In the introductory chapters of new story arcs—especially those intended to be jumping-on points for new readers—balancing action and exposition can be tricky, and more often not, readers are left wanting more of one element, or the other. Here, in the first part of “Burned,” writer Tim Seeley manages to provide just enough information for new readers to gain a handle on what’s happened without sacrificing any energy or excitement.

Although the issue works well, visually, the most impressive illustrations appear in the book’s second-half; the final moments of this issue are epic and make it clear, to readers, that there are several good reasons to come back for more, next month, promising intense action and sky-high stakes.

Bottom Line

Bloodshot #7 makes for an excellent jumping-on point, quickly bringing readers up to speed while simultaneously conjuring a great deal of interest and momentum for future releases.

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
