“The Book of Revelations” is a new arc starting in Bloodshot Salvation #10, due out in June. It finds Bloodshot in the year 4001 A.D. meeting himself… or at least what’s left of himself. And some dinosaurs. Care for a peek at Doug Braithwaite’s pencils? Scroll down.
Official PR follows and then some art:
Valiant is proud to announce that “THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS” will begin in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #10 – the FIRST ISSUE of ASHOCK-INDUCING JUMPING-ON POINT from New York Times best-seller Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer, Animal Man) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (X-O MANOWAR, Journey into Mystery)! On June 13th, Jeff Lemire’s Eisner Award-nominated superhero saga returns to the far, far future of 4001 A.D. for the ultimate meeting of man and machine at the crossroads of tomorrow and today!
Two thousand years in the future – in the year 4001 A.D. – the man once known as Ray Garrison is no more…but the microscopic nanites inside him live on. Enter Bloodshot 4001 – a strange, gunslinging echo of Bloodshot’s mind, body, and soul that is now more machine than man. But when our century’s Bloodshot finds himself delivered to the dawn of the 41st century with one last mission to fulfill, two Valiant legends will finally come face to face…just as the secret revelation that binds them together across the ages will forever reshape Bloodshot’s place at the center of the Valiant Universe!
Featuring the return of the 41st century’s futuristic Bloodshot after his first appearance from creators Lemire and Braithwaite during the 4001 A.D. crossover event, Ray Garrison’s salvation-seeking odyssey from America’s darkest corners and through the Deadside to secure his daughter’s safety reaches forward – and past the point of no return – on June 13th! The next stunning chapter starts here as Bloodshot’s past, present, and future collide with superstar creators Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite for “THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS” in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #10 – featuring covers by Kenneth Rocafort (Sideways), Renato Guedes(Wolverine), and Kim Jung Gi (Hit-Girl)!
But first: Jump on board for a breathtaking experiment in comics storytelling on March 7th with BLOODSHOT SALVATION #7 – the year’s most terrifying, most memorable special issue…told entirely in PITCH-BLACK DARKNESS!
Deployed into the demonic realm called Deadside in search of a cure for his ailing infant daughter, Bloodshot has lost the one sense he needs most to navigate the land of the dead: his sight. Blinded with only his four-legged ally, Bloodhound, to aid him, Ray Garrison must fight onward as one man against the darkness – even as he is beset from all sides by a horde of inhuman entities that crave only death, suffering, and slaughter…
On March 7th, everything goes black as visionary creator Jeff Lemire takes the helm for the year’s must-read single issue in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #7 – featuring covers by Jeff Lemire (A.D.: After Death), Raúl Allén(SECRET WEAPONS), Renato Guedes (X-O MANOWAR), David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), and comics legend Bob Layton (Iron Man)!
