Valiant Entertainment Sets Their Sights on New BLOODSHOT Series
Prepare for Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot movie with a new series from Tim Seeley and Brett Booth
Bloodshot, the unstoppable supersoldier trapped in a never-ending war, has arrived! Written by the electrifying Tim Seeley (Revival) and featuring artwork by industry icon Brett Booth (Teen Titans), this tremendous team is crafting a Bloodshot adventure full of badass action, surprising stories…and then some more badass action! Declan Shalvey (Return of Wolverine) will illustrate covers for the series.
Once, he was the perfect living weapon, created to follow orders. Now, Bloodshot works alone, using his lethal skills to protect those who cannot protect themselves. But a mysterious and powerful organization is watching, and they’re not about to let something as dangerous as Bloodshot remain free…

“I don’t feel like I need to reinvent the wheel with Bloodshot,” said Seeley. “What I need to do is tell a BIG, CRAZY story that can only be done in comics, and I need it to be powerful and emotional and relevant in a way only comics can do.”
Seeley plans to take a fun and fast-paced approach with Bloodshot. “I want to go back to basics and tell a story about a guy who was made to be a weapon but isn’t allowing anyone to use him ever again. He’s an outcast, an outsider, and he can’t help but use his indestructible body to help people, even though all it ever does is get him in trouble. With great power comes a great big pile of shell casings!”
Superstar artist Brett Booth spoke about how he’s having a blast with Seeley’s exciting script. “I’ve been looking for a project I could really cut loose on,” Booth expressed. “The first issue is pretty nuts. It gets right to the action, which I love, and then sets up the rest of the story. It’s a great jumping-on point.”
Valiant is set to distribute free copies of a brand-new BLOODSHOT short story by Seeley with artwork by Tomás Giorello and Diego Rodriguez on Free Comic Book Day (May 4, 2019) through participating retailers. The story leads into the new series.
