It sounds like the title of a porno, and if the movie ever hits it big, that still might happen. But Bloodshot Rising Spirit is actually the launch of a brand new Bloodshot comic from the folks at Valiant Entertainment, with a story by Lonnie Nadler & Zac Thompson, written by Kevin Grevioux, with art by Ken Lashley, inks by Ryan Winn, colors by Diego Rodriguez, and letters by Simon Bowland. The comic hits stores on November 14th, which means final order cutoff is next Monday, October 22nd. That means that's the last time your retailer can place an order for you, which means if you don't tell them you want one now, you're going to be reduced for buying your Bloodshot Rising Spirit on the black market, from a shady character in a dark alley, or worse, on eBay.
In a press release, Valiant also wanted to remind retailers that they've still got those glass variants by Doug Braithwaite available, and Valiant will ship them directly to your store so Diamond doesn't have a chance to dropkick the boxes around their warehouse and break it.
Attention, retailers: There's still time to qualify to receive the ultra-limited BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 Glass Variant, on which artwork by superstar creator Doug Braithwaite (Justice) will be printed via a special multi-colored process on a solid pane of glass! Please contact Valiant's dedicated sales team at email@example.com to learn more!
Plus, don't forget, fans: The BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1-8 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE is also still available to reserve until the final order cut-off (FOC) date of October 22nd, 2018 – packed with trade paperback-style extras and bonus content, plus exclusive covers by renowned artist Ken Lashley – all for no extra cost! No more copies will be made available beyond that date and subsequent issues will not be offered in later solicitations!
Check out the preview below, and pre-order Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 before it's tooooo laaaaaateee… late… late… late… late…

Before a weapon is deployed in battle, it must be designed, refined, field-tested. Bloodshot was no exception. In the early days of the private military contractor Project Rising Spirit, the nanite-infused super-soldier who would one day become their most violent and valuable asset was a resource to be mined – and it was up to an enterprising team of scientists to ensure he did what he was told. But a memory is a tricky thing…and the man Bloodshot used to be won't let go of his past so easily…
On November 14th, a brutal brain trust of comic elites come together to open a door once closed in BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 – featuring covers by Felipe Massafera (Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors), David Mack (Kabuki), Staz Johnson (Robin), and Doug Braithwaite (SHADOWMAN)!
