Valiant Unveils Bloodshot Icons Covers From Johnson, Fabry, Adams, Camuncoli, and More

Valiant has announced a new line of variant covers for their upcoming Bloodshot Salvation series. The new Bloodshot Icons variants are being done by Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Glenn Fabry (Preacher), Neal Adams (Green Lantern / Green Arrow), Cully Hamner (Red) and Giuseppe Camuncoli (Superior Spider-Man). The Icon variant will first appear on Bloodshot Savlation #1 by writer Jeff Lemire (Moon Knight) and artists Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn) and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn) — and continuing monthly on each issue thereafter.

Valiant's CEO & CCO Dinesh Shamdasani talked about the new approach the company is taking to covers:

With the launch of X-O Manowar (2017) earlier this year, we challenged ourselves to completely redefine Valiant's approach to covers and variants – from trade dress and logo designs to cover concepts on up. That resulted in several innovations that have quickly taken hold amongst fans and collectors, and now we're refining the process even further for the launch of Bloodshot Salvation #1 – Valiant's most important series of the fall and a truly heart-wrenching introduction to Jeff Lemire's Eisner-nominated run on the character. From Neal Adams to Dave Johnson, Bloodshot Icons might just be our of heaviest hitting artistic roster to date – and we have some even more stellar surprises yet to be revealed…

As for the issue itself, they synopsis reads:

A bloody and vengeful new beginning for Jeff Lemire'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… 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…
Bloodshot Salvation #1 is due out on September 20th. Retailers interested in obtaining the Bloodshot Icon variant covers should refer to the Diamond Retailer Site or contact a Valiant sales representative directly at sales@valiantentertainment.com.
