This January, Valiant is sending Bloodshot and the expendable commandos of H.A.R.D. Corps into action alongside legendary artist and Valiant icon Bart Sears (X-O Manowar) for “GET SOME!” – an all-new story arc beginning in Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #18!
As revealed today at MTV Geek, Sears will join ongoing co-writers Christos Gage and Joshua Dysart for an all-new, two-part story pitting Valiant’s 21st century shock troops against the first wave of superhuman specialists.
“['Get Some' is] both a term that’s used going into a war zone, referring to confirmed kills, as well as a catch phrase often used by action heroes,” Gage told MTV Geek. “We’re being a bit facetious in that, with the premise and setup, it could appear like this is a straightforward action-fest, but with me and Josh at the helm, it’s inevitably going to take some weird and subversive turns.”
Brought back from the dead and infused with cutting-edge nanotechnology, Bloodshot escaped to bring war down upon his former masters at Project Rising Sprit…but now they’ve made him an offer he can’t refuse. Partnered with the weaponized men and women of the H.A.R.D. Corps, this black budget, technologically-augmented strike force is facing off against a network of terrorist saboteurs in the heart of the Persian Gulf! But as Bloodshot digs into the multinational oil conglomerate that’s signing his paychecks, he’ll soon find himself confronted by the complex truth behind the terror – and face-to-face with an older, scrappier, more grizzled generation of superhuman soldier from the glory days of proxy wars and state-sponsored assassination.
As the next installment of Valiant’s MUST READ VALIANT campaign, Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps #18 – featuring covers by Clayton Crain (Ghost Rider), Lewis LaRosa (Punisher Max) and Cully Hamner (Red, Blue Beetle) – is a perfect entry point into the series that Uproxx calls “fun, snarky, and fast-paced; pretty much a perfect read for action fans”!
This winter, find out why VALIANT is the MUST READ publisher in comics today with a new series of self-contained stories and easy jumping-on points from some of the brightest talents in comics today. Look for new MUST READ VALIANT milestones each month, beginning in November with Quantum and Woody #5 by writer James Asmus and rising star Ming Doyle, and continuing in December with Shadowman #13 by the all-new creative team of Peter Milligan and Roberto De La Torre.
