    As I said in my previous review of the first Bloodshot TPB, Bloo

    As I said in my previous review of the first Bloodshot TPB, Bloodshot was never my favorite Valiant character. But this TPB started off interesting, and it has turned into a fairly interesting read.

    When we left Bloodshot, he was returning to Project Rising Spirit to try to learn about his past. His memories were false implants, and he wanted to return to PRS to find out what is going on. When he returned, there seemed to be a lot of stuff going on – lots of fights with random characters, lots of interaction with introduced character – it sort of seemed a jumbled mess. But I realized that it was supposed to be like that – Bloodshot is uncertain about what is going on, and so are we, the reader. WE don’t know any more than he does, and we are being exposed to things just as he is. At times some of the scenes seemed to be thrown in with little reason (like some of the people he was fighting). Some of the characters seem to just be odd conglomerations of tubes, body parts, and robotic implants that just seemed to be that way so they could be drawn “shockingly”. I am also still not sure how much I like Bloodshot’s new powers (at one point, for example, he “reallocates” mass from his arm to heal himself). But the ending of the book worked out well, as Bloodshot has now taken on a group of children that he has rescued (which directly leads to the Harbinger Wars which will presumably be the next story arc).
    The Bloodshot comic still seems to lack a little bit of focus at times, and the story wanders a little bit (and is a little dragged out), but overall this was a good story arc. We still don’t really see much character development, but I am willing to forgive that, as Bloodshot is basically a blank slate – he doesn’t know who he is. Hopefully we will start to see some more development of an individual personality as the story progresses.
