Brings Standees, Posters & More to a Town Near You
Valiant Entertainment has unveiled an astonishing lineup of free promotional items coming soon to comic shops for BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the BLOCKBUSTER ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Black Hammer) and explosive artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN, SAVAGE) and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN)!
A bloody and vengeful new beginning for Jeff Lemire’s Eisner Award-nominated Bloodshot saga begins here on September 20th as Ray Garrison escapes his violent past to build the one thing he never thought he’d earn: a family. But when a hateful secret from his true love’s past threatens their fragile peace, Bloodshot will be forced to run headlong into a barrage of blood, bullets, and broken bones for a revenge-fueled assault that will have crushing consequences for those he holds most dear…
Now, as BLOODSHOT SALVATION prepares to send Valiant’s unstoppable weapon of war on a heart-wrenching odyssey that will soon envelope the Valiant Universe – from the Deadside to the year 4001 A.D. – the award-winning comics publisher is preparing comic shops nationwide for the next unstoppable series launch from Valiant’s ICONS initiative with a staggering assortment of free promotional items, including:

Soon: Eight years from today, Bloodshot’s daughter has inherited her father’s incredible abilities. Hunted by a high-tech kill squad called Omen, Jessie must hone her powers…and learn how to survive before the world is swallowed whole by the darkness that now pervades America…
His sacrifice will be her salvation…
