As if things in New York City weren't bad enough… now an unstoppable virus has transformed everyone into a legion of horrific killing machines. I'm just going to take that off my travel plans…
Actually, that's the plot of the new four-issue Valiant miniseries from Jeff Lemire (Moon Knight) and Doug Braithwaite (Justice). Bloodshot U.S.A #1 ships on October 26th with covers by Kano (Gotham Central), Braithwaite, Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Ryan Stegman (Uncanny Avengers), Cully Hamner (Detective Comics), and Butch Guice (Captain America).
Here is the synopsis for the series along with some advanced preview pages.
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.
