I absolutely LOVE this fresh incarnation of the Thunderbolts. Jeff Parker has crafted a brilliant fresh squad of dysfunctional reprobates sort-of trying to function as a super team. Kev Walker's art is excellent, he's become one of my favorite artists prompting me to go search other trades that showcase his artwork (such as the clever Marvel Zombies 3). In this trade the "Underbolts" are introduced, the back-up, understudy squad of 'Bolts. This squad is created up of a few more devious and less repentant villains than our regular team, this fact does not come without consequence and tips of storylines to come. Another fresh addition to the squad is Satana, her introduction and placement on the squad alone is reason enough to pick up this volume, she's out of her mind and doesn't seem to understand "personal boundaries," haha. This volume is a amazing put to begin if you've missed the latest problems or do not own the proceeding two volumes. Thunderbolts by Jeff Parker is one of the top 3 titles I eagerly anticipate each month (alongside Uncanny X-Force by Rick Remender and X-Factor by Peter David). Do yourself a favor and buy all of the Parker/Walker Thunderbolts trades.
Finally..at least this volume of "Thunderbolts" seems to provide what was lacking in the previous volumes ("Thunderbolts:Cage" and "Thunderbolts:Shadowland"). In this volume, there was enough action , humour and more importantly, I very necessary ingredient for Thunderbolts, plot-twists!Issue #152 and 153 include one story-arc. To deal with a serious threat which reuires a lot, as Luke cage puts it, raw-power, he recruits Hyperion. Then , the squad goes to Japan to war some over-sized monsters. And then the unexpected happens. Though it's a short story-arc, it's highly entertaining and bit of humour makes it still sue #154 is a single story with focus on the Man-thing. It even tells about the origin of Man-thing. This, also, is a well-written sue #155 involves Cage and Strange going to Nepal to recruit Satana who doesn't seem to be interested in joining the Thunderbolts. Story is ok but the hero of Satana is very interesting and will only create the whole squad more sue #156 and 157 actually involves two stories. In one story, Cage takes the squad to Germany to handle one magical threat whereas in the other story Songbird, Fixer and Mach V (ex-thunderbolts and current Squad leaders) "interviewing" candidates for a beta-team of Thunderbolts. This Beta-team is later termed by Moonstone, very humorously (and maybe reasonably) as "Underbolts".One of the only fault I found with this book is the art. The pencillers are not that good, especially Kev-walker. He is poor with faces, especially with Karla Sofen/Moonstone. She looked ugly or was rather drawn ugly-ly. In Problem no 155, Dr Stephen Strange is drawn with a rather huge and awkward moustache which looked, well..strange! (Sorry, poor pun).Apart from the minor complaint I mentioned above,It's one of the few amazing ongoing-series from marvels. And this time, the Thunderbolts are led by a character (Like Cage). The Squad dynamics is good. Well-written dialogues, fast-paced story, lots of drama and action! Perfect characterization. Hats-off to Jeff Parker. Blessed is he, to be able to come up with such stories and characters. I had bought ALL the fresh Thunderbolts title ("Cage", "Shadowland", "Violent Rejections", "Fear Itself" and "The Amazing Escape"). No disappointments, so far. Hell, I'm even enjoying this series!
Ripoff! This is not an instructional guide. It only tells you which [email protected]#$%!ool you need for the year/make/model you select. I already know that information. You can look this info up on the internet or at your locksmith supply. DON'T WASTE YOUR $$$ I want I could give it NO stars.
Launched as part of the 2012 “Summer of Valiant” initiative, Bloodshot is the story of a man reconstructed into the ultimate soldier… a hybrid of man and machine; his blood replaced with microscopic machines that grant him increased strength and speed, a healing factor capable of handling the worst of injuries or altering his appearance, and the ability to network with and control other is trade begins with our character seemingly on a rescue mission for the military into Afghanistan… except for the little fact that everything he was told about this mission is a lie. Not only that, but everything he believes about himself… also a lie. And after a glimpse of the truth is revealed to Bloodshot, well, let’s just say his true employers are none too anxious to have him out of their control, and resolve to bring him back in pieces if need be. The ultimate soldier is about to become the ultimate is is, by far, the most brutal books of the Valiant line. There is no fear here in showing the amount of violence that Bloodshot can withstand… something that truly sets this comic apart from others on the stands. The hero is a walking engine of destruction, and Valiant is pulling no punches here. They have done an expert job of mixing in characters, themes, and plot devices from the previous two incarnations of Bloodshot, but that is where the similarities end. As with all their comics, Valiant is playing the long game. Do not expect a tidy resolution to the story at the end of this tpb, rather, expect to obtain sucked into an ongoing story that will continue into the next couple of tpbs and expand into other Valiant comics, as well. Here’s a small tip... do yourself a favor and pickup Valiant’s Harbinger series alongside Bloodshot. It will become obvious in due time…
Bloodshot Vol. 1 Setting the Globe on Fire, this was the final TPB of the begin titles I read from VEI, as it was the one I was most concerned with quality story-wise. Come to search out I shouldn't have been concerned as it's really my other reviews, let's do a small backstory. My first experience with bloodshot was the Rai #0 problem from Nov. 1992, however I didn't obtain to read it until the Rai TPB which reprinted it. Here we see an unnamed man on life help being released by a young boy from a facility that he has snuck into, this man awakes and kills his captors and escapes the facility. An interesting, albeit unoriginal beginning, however what did differ was this boy was a Geomancer, and this man called Bloodshot has little machines in his blood, nanomachines to be precise that can control computers, heal him and control his physiology to let him to perform superhuman feats of skill and strength. Also in this problem you see that this man was a lynchpin to the Valiant universe from the time in the show to the year 4001. A few months later in Feb 1993, this mystery man known as bloodshot would debut in his own self-titled book to amazing acclaim and prominence in the valiant universe and become one of the most recognized and favorite characters from the young comics company. He is also one of the few characters to come out of the Birthquake shake up of the original valiant run with the same writer and two of the best artists in the industry at the time, the only issue with the book was the ending which was a cliffhanger, but which had a story that was quite convoluted with a nano-virus and nano-infants, the less said the to the 2012 reboot of the character, we search Bloodshot in related situation as we originally encoutered him being originally. Only this time no Geomancer, and this is no story about him being the lynchpin (as of yet) to this fresh universe. This brings us back to the title of the review, this Bloodshot seems to be a man who doesn't know who he is and for amazing reason as he's brain has been tampered with and reprogramed a lot of times over, so it's no surprise he doesn't know who he is. One thing to note, this isn't the old Bloodshot, this one includes scenes of violence a bit more graphic than the original book (which I am re-reading right now) which was quite graphic for its time as well. But don't allow that be a deterrant as this is actually a very well crafted story, which is quite the page turner as e creative squad of Duane Swierczynski the author with Manuel Garcia & Arturo Lozzi on art duties create for a amazing combination of talent, while I am unfamiliar with their past work, they do a more than serviceable job with the title moving the story along, crafting very graphic scenes of violence and mayhem, but not gratiously. With this fresh change in the title since Bloodshot himself gets seriously wounded (walking away from a crash) and getting shot up quite often and seeing the limits of his powers to re-constitute himself from even the most greivous injuries and that the nanites in his blood are various too, not the innoculous small machines that did their job in the original book, now they are an actual hero and speak to him in different forms. The little supporting cast is created up of two female characters one a EMT who happens to be a battle veteran (and beautiful amazing with a gun too) and the other a helpless girl controlled by the same forces that wish to control Bloodshot (and shockingly has a past with him too). He actually has two parties out for him that wish to use him as a weapon or destroy him so no one can have him and are tied beautiful massive into the lore as well.While not a cannot-put-down page turner like Harbinger Vol. 1, I did read it in two or three sessions. Bloodshot Vol. 1 is a very powerful entry into the fresh Valiant Universe, and like Archer & Armstrong makes me wish to see what's coming next. While I will be missing some of the touches that Kevin Van Hook and Don Perlin did with the original run from 1993, and also will miss the relationships Bloodshot had in that book (with Gilead, Ninjak, Neville and MI 6) it will be interesting to see where this book goes and the cast of characters this Bloodshot will interact with. The fresh Bloodshot succeeds very well without those things and I beleive will work just as well on concept alone with a brand fresh story to back it up.I give it four stars of out five as another powerful entry into the fresh VEI line and look forward to seeing where the creators go next with this man who is just trying to figure out who he is. Give it a shot, you'll have a amazing ride. More to come, with X-O Manowar Vol. 2, Valiant Masters Bloodshot (reading now) and the just released Shadowman Vol. 1 (coming soon).
Duane Swierczynski did a fine job writing several books over at Marvel, so I had a fair amount of confidence that he would do a amazing job on this book, too. Now that I've finally sat down to read it, I can say that I am not disappointed. I think I'm going to have fun this iteration of the hero at least as much as the is ver of Bloodshot has most of the same abilities/powers and the ver made by Valiant back in the early '90's, but his one has some beautiful severe mental issues. First and foremost of these is that he doesn't know who he is or which of his memories are true and which ones are fake. Sound a small familiar? well, if it worked for Wolverine, it's probably going to work for other characters, too, right?This Bloodshot is a secret operative of the US government, but that is all about to change. How a lot of times can one man's mind and body be shredded and place back together before he either goes crazy or stops trusting anyone? You're about to search out!With loads of action, amazing artwork and some decent story-telling, this book is off to a promising start!
Bloodshot is a quick action comic that deals with espionage. Bloodshot was made as the ultimate fighter with unique cells in his blood that let him to heal from almost any wound even being blown up. The issue is the Project Rising Spirit is using him and filling him with false memory to do their dirty work. When he finds out the truth, he will create them pay. This book ties in well with Harbinger. Valiant comics is creating a tight universe. You can obtain in on the ground floor right now with this universe and you will come to recognize that Valiant is something unique and a welcomed reprieve from the same ole items from the huge two (marvel and dc). Any Valiant book you see, just give it a shot and it will not disappoint!
What happens when the United States government contracts with a weapons contractor (Project Rising Spirit) to produce a living weapon? You obtain Bloodshot. With this book Valiant reinvents their fan favorite hero from the ‘90s for a fresh generation. With nanites coursing through his body, healing his wounds and allowing him to communicate with machines, Bloodshot is close to unstoppable. Every time he is sent on a fresh mission, he receives a fresh set of memories to give him the encouragement and background he needs to obtain the job done. When Bloodshot discovers that his memories are not true he decides to set out on his own course to explore who, or what, he really is. Can Project Rising Spirit subdue and capture their weapon, or has Bloodshot now become their largest liability?This book is awesome. The dialogue is sharp and the story is well thought out by writer Duane Swierczynski. The artwork by Manuel Garcia, Arturo Lozzi, and Stefano Gaudiano is crisp and really suits the action packed story. The production quality on the book is top notch. Included in this volume is a cover gallery as well as some process art. Bloodshot vol. 1: Setting the Globe On Fire really delivers.
Bloodshot comic's story and art looks amazing. Manuel Garcia and Arturo Lozzi bring so much amazing talent to the Bloodshot character. When you read this book, you will see Bloodshot's anger and confusion as he tries to search out who and what he has become. The nanite blood still lives within Bloodshot. The modern Bloodshot keeps the same core story elements with the 90's story that feels like an amazing 90's film is unfolding in front of your eyes. A one man battle machine, anyone who crosses his path better watch out. Pick up a copy and you will be not be disappointed.
WARNING - this is not your typical anti-hero action title that cares more about shocking you with violence then delivering a amazing story. Yes - it's action packed and filled with that amazing old ULTRA VIOLENCE but what really stands it apart from the norm is its attention to story and in particular the fascinating backstory and mysterious origin of one of the coolest action anti-heroes in comics - Bloodshot. Project Rising Spirit made the ultimate killing machine - a technological marvel with his nanite infused bloodstream, Bloodshot is not only able to dominate with brute force and deadly precision but through his ability to become one with the technology that surrounds him - Now if only he could figure out the truth of what and who he truly is... This is a amazing read!
Bloodshot! The story and art looks amazing. Manuel Garcia and Arturo Lozzi bring so much amazing talent to the Bloodshot character. When you read this book, you will see Bloodshot's anger and confusion as he tries to search out who and what he has become. Valiant 90's sold over several million copies. In 2012, with Valiant Entertainment, the nanite blood still lives within Bloodshot. The modern Bloodshot keeps the same cory story elements with the 90's story. A one man battle machine, anyone who crosses his path better watch out. Pick up this copy and you will be not be dissapointed.
This is an amazing series for anyone who grew up watching cheesy nineties action movies, and is a huge fan of anti-heroes. There is violence, mind control/ manipulation, telepaths, and [email protected]#$% troops vets. All in all this a very well written series that drags you in and leaves you craving more, so if you're like me and felt like waiting on this series, don't wait much longer it's worth the read.
After the first problem of Bloodshot I had to place the book down and catch my breath. This is a non-stop action book. The artwork in this book is particularly amazing. This book has two artists, Manuel Garcia, who does the main artwork, which is energetic and well laid out, and Arturo Lozzi, who does the not quite true looking "flashback" that off with veteran writer Duane Swierczynski, and you really have a complete package, filled with mayhem and explosions.
