When #14 Becomes #1 And The Colors Go Away

Today is my third anniversary of coming to work here at Bleeding Cool. I'd done a few articles prior to that, but I signed on as a staff writer three years ago today. In that time I have some some odd things, but this is a first. Valiant is offering up a #1 issues for a comic that isn't a #1. The first issue of the new Bloodshot Island story arc came out in Bloodshot Reborn #14. But hitting shops this week is Bloodshot Reborn: Bloodshot Island – Director's Cut #1 using the uncolored art. And it's 48-pages where issue #14 is a standard size comic. Kind of odd.

So if you missed issue #14, you can get the Director's Cut #1… but that's going to play hell with your filing system

Written by Jeff Lemire Art by Mico Suayan Cover by Tomas Giorello
