Bloodshot Preview: The Rise & Fall Begins

Valiant Entertainment have released a new, five-page preview of Bloodshot #5, the beginning of the "Rise & Fall" storyline that will kick off the series's second arc.

The best-selling series by writer Duane Swierczynski may not be plastered on the bodies of Olympic athletes, but it's one of the most consistently entertaining action-and-espionage titles on the racks, and destined for Hollywood glory soon.

Check out the images and preview text below.

"The Rise & The Fall" starts here! Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Bloodshot #5 – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new arc by writer Duane Swierczynski and artists Manuel Garcia & Arturo Lozzi, and a perfect jumping-on point for the series at the brutal heart of the new Valiant Universe!

Bloodshot is finally free of the memories that have haunted him since his awakening – but now even greater mysteries remain. Who was he before he was transformed into a walking weapon? And just what purpose did he serve for Project Rising Spirit? Now, a rogue PRS scientist has told Bloodshot the location of the answers he needs - and they're buried deep within an off-the-grid, savagely fortified black site that will rain hellfire down upon anyone who dares trespass. And, once he's inside, he may just discover that he's not the only indestructible killing machine PRS ever dreamed into the world…

What is Project Rising Spirit's true function in the Valiant Universe? Who will answer for their crimes? And what darker secrets yet await in the recesses of their classified compound? The answers you've been waiting for will beckon on November 14th in the powder-burned first chapter of "The Rise & The Fall," only in Bloodshot #5!
