Valiant is trying something new with something old. They are taking the first chapter of Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa’s Bloodshot Reborn series and packaging it as a 48-page directors cut. The first thing you’ll notice about Bloodshot Reborn: The Analog Man – Director’s Cut #1 is that we get LaRosa’s pencils instead of the finished colored art as shown in the preview below.
Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland and the once unstoppable killing machine known as BLOODSHOT has become THE ANALOG MAN. Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot’s taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life – Magic – and protecting a group of stragglers who’ve weathered the storm. But when a gang of marauders arrives, the settlement’s survival is threatened, and Bloodshot is forced to bring justice to the distorted and disjointed badlands of the Valiant Universe!
