'Bloodshot' #7 Preview: Perfect jumping-on point to get to know the hero ahead of Vin Diesel movie's release
Valiant Comics is preparing to come back into the spotlight in a big way with the Vin Diesel-starrer 'Bloodshot' set to arrive in theaters on March 13. The movie is expected to revitalize interest in Valiant's stable of characters and launch a whole new franchise.
While his silver screen debut is just around the corner, Valiant's current 'Bloodshot' series is forging ahead at full steam with its seventh issue scheduled to arrive in stores ahead of the film's release. The new book will be a continuation of the current run but it will also be featuring the start of a crazy new storyline so it should be a great choice for readers who are unfamiliar with the character and want a bit of background before the movie drops.
'Bloodshot' #7 is written by Tim Seeley, with Marc Laming’s pencils and inks and Tyler Kirkham's work on the cover. Andrew Dalhouse has provided the colors for the issue and Dave Sharpe the letters.
The comic seems like it might be a great read and Valiant has described it in a press release as "an action-packed three-issue story that unleashes hell on Earth." The new story will reportedly see the shapeshifting super-soldier take on all sorts of crazy enemies, including aliens, monsters, and other living weapons.
That's not all, though. After the movie's release, Valiant will also be releasing a "Fully Loaded" edition of 'Bloodshot' #7 that will include eight pages worth of bonus content, including new artwork, classified information, commentary from Bloodshot’s co-creator Kevin Vanhook, and a still of Vin Diesel from the movie as cover art.
Here's the official solicitation for the upcoming issue: "You've seen Vin Diesel's Bloodshot in the big screen... now leap into the thrilling comics with 'BURNED' PART ONE!"
'Bloodshot' #7 will arrive at stores on March 11. The fully loaded edition will release alongside 'Bloodshot' #8 on April 8. The 'Bloodshot' movie is scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 13.
