0

It’s been a big couple of days for Valiant’s Bloodshot character. Yesterday, the publisher announced that his newest comic, Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1, had set sales records for a Bloodshot debut book in the modern Valiant era, and now today news comes that the very same comic is headed back for a second printing.

Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 will be back on shelves next month to coincide with the release of the series’ second issue (check out a preview here). The full press release from Valiant follows:

Valiant is proud to announce that BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 – the first issue of the pulse-pounding origin series by Kevin Grevioux (New Mutants), Lonnie Nadler (Cable), Zac Thompson(The Dregs), and artist Ken Lashley (X-Men) – has sold out at the distributor level and will return to stores everywhere with the BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 SECOND PRINTING on December 19th, 2018!

Surpassing previous sales records for BLOODSHOT (2012)  #1, BLOODSHOT REBORN #1, and BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 has already ascended to the ranks of Valiant’s most celebrated titles as the highest-selling Bloodshot series in the modern era!

On December 19th, find out why fans and critics hail BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 as a tour de force premiere for the next essential Valiant series, documenting Project Rising Spirit’s path to creating the perfect instrument of destruction:

“[BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1] is exactly what you wanted…. An all-around visually stunning piece.”Geeks Worldwide

“A strong step forward for the re-invigoration of the character.” The Brazen Bull

“The dialogue is good, the artwork is dynamic, and the pace keeps up through this first issue.” – The Fanboy Factor

“Amazing, brutal artwork that shows off the destruction of Bloodshot’s rage…”Everything Action

“If [BLOODSHOT SIRING SPIRIT #1] is your first time reading Bloodshot or anything from Valiant, this is the perfect place to be introduced.”Rogues Portal

Plus, in stores that same day: The back-breaking action rages onward in BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #2,  the next chapter in an unstoppable new series delving deep into the violent legacy of the man-turned-machine known as…Bloodshot!

Bloodshot’s handlers have a problem: Their valuable asset isn’t quite the blank slate they’d hoped for and keeps rejecting the false memories they attempt to implant into his mind. Can Project Rising Spirit recoup their losses and produce the perfect supersoldier at last – or is their new prototype at risk of being shelved permanently?

On December 19th, celebrated writer Kevin Grevioux (the Underworld franchise) and acclaimed artist Ken Lashley (Black Panther) deliver a powerful blow to the freshly rewritten psyche of Valiant’s larger-than-life legend in BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #2 – featuring covers by Felipe Massafera (Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors), Leif Jones (GENERATION ZERO), and Leonardo Manco (Hellblazer)!
