Bloodshot #1 Chinese Edition
Valiant/DMG Entertainment, published date: 2015Rare
This is the 2015 Chinese reprint of Bloodshot #1 from the 2012 series. Valiant announced a partnership and licencing deal with DMG (Dynamic Media Group) in 2015 and the comic was produced for the press conference with the Chinese media (and some seem to have made their way back to the USA, although some may have been file or complimentary copies kept in the USA).
The Summer of Valiant continues! It's the start of a new mission for one of comics' all-time best-selling superheroes in Bloodshot #1 - the first issue of new ongoing series from acclaimed novelist Duane Swierczynski (Immortal Iron Fist, Birds of Prey) and the lethal artistic tag team of Manuel Garcia (Checkmate) and Arturo Lozzi (Immortal Weapons)!
Your name is Angelo Mortalli. Your brother is trapped behind enemy lines and on the verge of - no. That's not right. Your name is Raymond Garrison. You've retired from the dangers of the field, but a desperate plea from your oldest friend plunges you into a vicious firefight that - no. That's not right, either. You are Bloodshot. You are the shade of gray that freedom requires. The perfect confluence of military necessity and cutting-edge technology. A walking WikiLeaks that is a reservoir of dirty secrets that could set the world on fire. And you've just been captured.
