New York, NY (April 1, 2019) – Valiant Entertainment is beyond excited to reveal the first look at the BLOODSHOT #1 Googly-Eyes Variant, which features an eye-popping cover image by Declan Shalvey and an extra special Googly-Eyes treatment from Michaels, the premier source for art supplies, crafting, and framing!

“In today’s crazy topsy-turvy world, I think Bloodshot’s Googly-Eyes is a savvy metaphor for how Googly-Eyed we’re all viewing each other,” observed artist and part-time philosopher Declan Shalvey. “Bloodshot has his finger—and Googly-Eyes—on the pulse of modern culture.”

“They say the eyes are the windows to the soul,” artist Brett Booth said as he as gazed at the clear sky during a peaceful picnic. “With Bloodshot’s eyes being perpetually red, we miss out on his deeper emotions. With this Googly-Eyed Edition, I feel we can finally see the deeper feelings and emotions that truly drive this character.”

“If the ’90s were the Chromium Era of comics, then I think Valiant is ushering in the Googly-Eyes Age,” Tim Seeley passionately tweeted. “Modern readers want great stories, top-notch art, collectability, and the utter hilariousness of eyeballs that freely move around. Look at them! HA! SO SILLY!”

Getting this unique variant made wasn’t easy, though. “Why are we doing this? I thought I vetoed it,” shouted Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce from his office. “Because we want to,”  Director of Design & Production Travis Escarfullery muttered under his breath.
