Publisher’s Summary: “He only has “One Last Shot” as the brand-new story arc starts now! Superstar artist Brett Booth and Pedro Andreo join best-selling scribe Tim Seeley for Bloodshot’s road to retribution. Who can one a one-man army trust when everyone’s trying to kill him?”
For the beginning of a new arc, Bloodshot #10 fully embraces the idea of too much is never enough, but in a good way. Though info dumps and exposition drops abound, their implementation is handled expertly.
The story unfolds as Bloodshot manages to find his way back from the most desolate of houses with the help of former employee of Project Rising Spirit, Wilfred Wigans. Their first meeting happily devolves into carnage, but then this buddy adventure of retribution really begins adding plot points, new allies and old foes at an unrelenting pace.
There is a lot going on here. Fortunately, Tim Seeley gets the major beats of the upcoming arc out of the way quickly. We know the stakes, we know who the good guys and bad guys are, and there is just enough mystery to keep the narrative chugging along.
Brett Booth and Pedro Andreo with Andrew Dalhouse contributing to color give the issue the sci-fi succumbing to madness look that is as compelling as Seeley’s words.
The Bottom Line
Bloodshot (2019) # 10 is a fine spot to jump into the ongoing trials of the nanite infected Ray Garrison. There’s plenty of action in this issue and a great sense of where the story is heading.
