BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1
Written by LONNIE NADLER & ZAC THOMPSON
Art by KEN LASHLEY
Cover by FELIPE MASSAFERA

NEW ONGOING SERIES! DISCOVER THE TRUE ORIGIN OF VALIANT’S MOST UNRELENTING HERO!
Before a weapon is deployed in battle, it must be designed, refined, field-tested. Bloodshot was no exception.

In the early days of the private military contractor Project Rising Spirit, the nanite-infused super-soldier who would one day become their most violent and valuable asset was a resource to be mined – and it was up to one enterprising employee, the “Memory Weaver,” to ensure he did what he was told. But a memory is a tricky thing…and the man Bloodshot used to be won’t let go of his past so easily…

Critically acclaimed writing duo Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson (Cable) team up with distinguished artist Ken Lashley (Black Panther) to open a door once closed and reveal answers to questions that Bloodshot himself would never think to ask!
ONGOING SERIES | BEGINNING NOVEMBER 2018


Coming early 2019, also from Valiant, Incursion #1
Early next year, Valiant is also bringing us an intriguing series entitles Incursion. From what I grasp from the latest press release, its about a region called the Deadside, where our departed souls linger on, and alien worlds from other dimensions colliding with our own. Sounds pretty wild and intriguing to me. 

Even more so, knowing Andy Diggle and Doug Braithwaite are the creative team behind this project. I was already sold by the teaser image from our good friend here at thestevestrout.com, Jeffrey Veregge!

Don't Call It A Comeback..

Ive been here for years...ok I'll stop..

Anyways, I'm sure you've all noticed I've been off the grid for a bit since late last year. I do the majority of the posts here, and sometimes life gets in the way and changes. This time things have changed for the better. If you know me on a personal level, you understand. If you don't know me personally, why aren't we friends!?

I'm going to put more effort Into posting more again here and getting my geek on with you all, since I've missed ya.

I haven't done much to fit the theme of this site lately but here's a few pics from the first half of this year, including a visit to the Museum of Pop Culture (in Seattle), Emerald City Comic Con, and a visit to the Funko HQ. Hope you enjoy these pics as much as I did visiting these places!
