Introducing… X-O Squirt-O-War In Bloodshot Reborn #3
With the first issue quickly approaching 50,000 units, Valiant appears to have a solid hit on its hands with Bloodshot Reborn, the new ongoing series from Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan.
The series is notable for taking one of Valiant's biggest characters in a very dark,True Detective-influenced direction that sees its creators couching Bloodshot's usual superheroics in a critique of the country's obsession with violence, touching on everything from mass shootings to gun control.
More interesting still, Jeff Lemire has added an innovative twist into the series' artwork itself by drawing in the "secret" character of "Bloodsquirt" in his own distinctive art style. Valiant has already promised that we'll be seeing more of Bloodsquirt's world in August's Bloodshot Reborn #5, but before that, get ready to meet the second leading player in the "Squirtverse"…
That's right, X-O Squirt-o-War makes his first appearance in June's Bloodshot Reborn #3…
Might it be his last as well?
Bloodshot Reborn #3 is on sale June 17th.
