BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 Brushed Metal Variant – a stunning, all-metal cover adorning the FIRST ISSUE of the BLOCKBUSTER ONGOING SERIES by New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Moon Knight) and explosive artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN)! Following in the footsteps of the highly sought-after X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 Brushed Metal Variant, this limited edition of the punishing new introduction to Jeff Lemire’s Eisner Award-nominated epic is only the second metal cover ever produced by Valiant Entertainment and comes printed via a special process on an actual brushed aluminum metal sheet featuring artwork by interior artist Mico Suayan.
“Our first metal cover – produced for the launch of X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 earlier this year – was not only a runaway success, but a true labor of love. It took more than a year of research and testing to source the correct materials and perfect the printing process in order to produce the first, true metal cover in the history of comics,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “It’s a highly specialized process that generated such a tremendous response that we’ve decided to revisit it for our most important new series of the fall. But we have not been resting on our laurels. Together with our printing partners, we’ve been able to further refine the process and reduce the cost – a savings that we are passing on to fans and retailers with a lower threshold needed to obtain the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 Brushed Metal Variant. We're very happy to announce that we'll be offering the cover at half the ratio of the first.”
From New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Moon Knight) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) & Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), a bloody and vengeful new era for Valiant’s Eisner Award-nominated Bloodshot saga begins this September as Ray Garrison escapes 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…
