Valiant Claims Today’s Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 Broke a Very Specific Sales Record

Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1, which just hit stores today, is already breaking sales records, according to a press release from Valiant Entertainment. The comic is the highest selling Bloodshot comic of the modern Valiant era, the press release claims, though since the book just hit stores today, we can safely add “to retailers” to the title. So Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 is the highest selling Bloodshot comic of the modern Valiant era… to retailers.

Said Valiant Publisher and man with two first names Fred Pierce of ol’ Circle Chest:

Bloodshot is one of the most popular heroes in Valiant’s celebrated roster of characters, and we’re ecstatic to see that he’s in more demand than ever. Our fantastic editors and creative team crafted a spectacular story, and our unstoppable Sales team worked hard to help make this the biggest release since we first revealed Bloodshot to a new generation of readers in 2012. With innovations like the Glass Variant Cover and the Nanite Prevention Kit, we’ve further cemented Valiant’s position as one of the most daring and groundbreaking companies in the comic industry.

The press release puts all the Bloodshot comics that failed to sell as well as Bloodshot Rising Spirit #1 on blast:

Surpassing records for BLOODSHOT (2012) #1, BLOODSHOT REBORN #1, and BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 features an unforgettable story from an assemblage of master storytellers, including Kevin Grevioux (New Mutants), Lonnie Nadler (Cable), Zac Thompson (The Dregs), and artist Ken Lashley (X-Men), as they detail the hidden history of Valiant’s unyielding one-man war machine!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
