Retailer Advisory: Valiant’s Latest Smash-Hit Series Returns with BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 Second Printing on November 8th!

Posted on by

Valiant is proud to announce that BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the BLOCKBUSTER ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Black Hammer) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) & Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN) – has sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves everywhere with the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 SECOND PRINTING on November 8th!

In the wake of the year’s most successful ongoing and limited series debuts from any independent publisher with titles including X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 and SECRET WEAPONS #1, Valiant’s ICONS initiative continues here with a bloody and vengeful new era for Jeff Lemire’s Eisner Award-nominated Bloodshot saga! Ray Garrison has escaped his violent past to build the one thing he never thought he’d earn: a family. But when a hateful secret from his true love’s past threatens their fragile peace, Bloodshot will be forced to run headlong into a barrage of blood, bullets, and broken bones for a revenge-fueled assault that will have crushing consequences for those he holds most dear…

His sacrifice will be her salvation.

Now: In the arms of his beloved girlfriend Magic, Bloodshot has finally found hope for the future…in the form of the couple’s unborn child. But when Magic’s estranged family – a cruel and sadistic clan of homegrown criminals – re-emerge to lay claim to their lost daughter, Bloodshot will be pushed back to the brink of madness, mayhem, and warfare…

Soon: Eight years from today, Bloodshot’s daughter has inherited her father’s incredible abilities. Hunted by a high-tech kill squad called Omen, Jessie must hone her powers…and learn how to survive before the world is swallowed whole by the darkness that now pervades America…

On November 8th, head to your local comics retailer to discover why BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 is a tense, adrenaline-addled introduction into one of the most acclaimed and gripping superhero epics of the decade:
