Into the Deadside! Years ago, Project Rising Spirit’s cutting-edge nanite technology transformed Ray Garrison into the walking weapon codenamed Bloodshot. Now, those very same microscopic machines have infected his infant daughter’s physiology and threaten to destroy her from the inside out. As the life of an innocent hangs the balance, Bloodshot will be forced to make an unimaginable decision: to watch the child he loves die, or to confront death itself…and strike a bargain for her safety. Now, with the supernatural heroes known as Shadowman and Dr. Mirage to guide him, Bloodshot is about to undertake a unreal journey into the demon-haunted dimension known as the Deadside to save a life…or sacrifice his own…
Plus: Magic and the Bloodshot Squad lead an assault on OMEN for the rescue attempt of a lifetime!
Featuring appearances from Ninjak, Shadowman, Dr. Mirage, Bloodhound, Baron Samedi, and more, a wrenching new chapter for Valiant’s powerful monthly series starts here as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire leads Bloodshot to the precipice of loss, grief, and retribution in “THE BOOK OF THE DEAD” – featuring fully painted interior art by sensational rising star Renato Guedes (X-O MANOWAR, Wolverine)!
Ray Garrison’s long walk into darkness starts here, only in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #6 – featuring covers by Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Renato Guedes (X-O MANOWAR), John Bivens (Spread), David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), and Jim Mahfood (Grrl Scouts)!
But first: All roads lead to revenge on November 15th as master storytellers Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa, and Mico Suayan barrel forward with the next must-read chapter in Valiant’s punishing crusade of violence, villains, and vengeance in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #3! In the footsteps of X-O MANOWAR and SECRET WEAPONS, the next sold-out series from Valiant’s “ICONS” initiative brings down the hammer this fall as Ray Garrison confronts a deranged zealot connected to his own family’s dark past…even as his wife and daughter find themselves hunted by the brutal powerhouse called Rampage!

Soon: Years from today – in a world gone wrong where Bloodshot long ago went M.I.A. – can Magic and Jessie navigate the agents of OMEN that now pursue them across the heartland?
