BLOODSHOT SALVATION #7
$3.99 | 32 pgs. | T+ | VALIANT PREMIUM
On Sale MARCH 7th (FOC – 2/12/2018)
Deployed into the demonic realm called Deadside in search of a cure for his ailing infant daughter, Bloodshot has lost the one sense he needs most to navigate the land of the dead: his sight. Blinded with only his four-legged ally, Bloodhound, to aid him, Ray Garrison must fight onward as one man against the darkness – even as he is beset from all sides by a horde of inhuman entities that crave only death, suffering, and slaughter…
“It’s the emotional journey of Ray over this issue that I connect with, not the physical one,” writer Jeff Lemire told Paste. “That feeling of trying to protect your child from a world that seems out of control. That’s something I can relate to as a parent, especially in the crazy world we are living in right now.”
