The worst thing you can do is forcefully separate someone from their loved ones. It’s really not something you should do to a guy that can control every part of his physiology. Which I think is ironic…why does the guy stay white with a big red dot on his chest? I haven’t read many Bloodshot comics. I know that the character has been sent to the future to kill a guy(sort of reverse Terminator). When he has done this he’ll return to past to his partner; Magic and their daughter Jessie. Sounds simple. Except an evil government called the Omen is out to get them. The story drew me into it’s complicated, but simple read. I almost lost it with the talking dog though. Bloodshot is in the year 4002 AD so I’ll let the dog thing go. It also became necessary for the plot. I thought Bloodshot was special, but there tons of guys with red dots on their chests. The character Rampage appears to have a grudge and causes issues for Magic and Jessie. Not having read maybe an issue or two of the series I was still enjoying this book. I thought I didn’t care for Doug Braithwaite’s art but I like how it has a war torn feel to it. The story testes Bloodshot’s morals and where he stands in the whole situation. I do know that 10 issues is a lot to catch up with on Salvation, but so I should be a quality read from Lemire and company.
