Preview of BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #1 (of 4) by Jeff Lemire and Valiant Entertainment
FIRST ISSUE of the all-new standalone event from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Old Man Logan) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice) and the next hit series from “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” initiative! From the Bronx to Broadway, an unstoppable, nanite-enhanced pathogen is about to turn New York City’s populace against itself…and Bloodshot is the only soldier tough enough to lead a one-man invasion of the city that never sleeps! And if he falls, the nation won’t stand a chance against the most dangerous outbreak in American history…
“I tried to have every arc be a totally new genre featuring Bloodshot, but also all build up to a larger story. “BLOODSHOT U.S.A." is the culmination of all of that,” writer Jeff Lemire told Comic Book Resources. “This is really everything coming full circle into a perfect storm.”
Project Rising Spirit – America’s greatest exporter of classified weapons technology – has achieved a breakthrough: a contagious, airborne nanite dispersion prototype that can turn the population of any city into an army of indestructible soldiers. A doomsday virus capable of destroying an enemy nation from the inside out. A machine-made pathogen that can completely rewrite human physiology…and hardcode every man, woman, and child with the same cutting-edge technology that created their greatest weapon: Bloodshot.
But now…Project Rising Spirit’s top-secret contagion has been released onto the streets of America’s greatest metropolis: New York City. As mayhem engulfs Manhattan, Bloodshot must lead the most dangerous invasion ever waged on American soil and keep a runaway pandemic from toppling armies and governments…and threatening to destroy humanity itself.
