Starting the January, the new Bloodshot Reborn storyline The Analog Man will be published in the Valiant Prestige format. Starting with issue 10, the four-part series from Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa will be ad-free, feature laminate card-stock covers and heavyweight end sheets for just $3.99. This is the same format used for The Valiant and Divinity. The publisher considers this to be a jumping on point for new readers.
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 Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot’s taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life – Magic – and protecting a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!
The issue features covers from Lewis LaRosa (The Punisher), Ryan Sook (Wednesday Comics), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Jeffrey Veregge (Red Wolf), Tula Lotay (Supreme: Blue Rose), David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man) and Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth).
