This, all this
Bloodshot Salvation #4 - Jeff Lemire,Mico Suayan

Man, this makes me want more Bloodshot.  

 

Daddy's history sets up a new threat, as Daddy tries to right what he sees as a wrong with his brother Danny.  

 

And although Bloodshot appears to be dead, Punk Mambo provides a connection - and surprising revelation as to where Bloodshot is.   I kinda need issue five now.  Although I guess I can wait until next Wednesday...

Still loving this
Bloodshot Salvation #3 - Jeff Lemire,Lewis Larosa,Mico Suayan

This gets more complex, more heartbreaking, as Bloodshot finds and confronts Daddy, Magic's father, and the leader of a cult.   Bloodshot is furious over what Daddy's done to Magic, and how Daddy is trying to get Magic back, breaking up the family that Magic and Bloodshot have made.   

 

No doubt Daddy wants Magic to bring her daughter, Jessie, to the cult, and although she has no plans to do this, the mere thought infuriates Bloodshot.

Love this series so much!
Bloodshot Salvation #2 - Jeff Lemire,Lewis Larosa,Mico Suayan

Bloodshot Salvation has become one of my favorite current series.  I'm already sad this is only twelve issues long, especially since I finished three and four today.  That means I only have eight issues left.   What?  No, that can't be!

 

Bloodshot, Magic, and their baby, Jessie, are trying to live their lives, but Magic's father, who calls himself Daddy, is the leader of cult, and abused Magic when she was a child, keeps calling.   Ray/Bloodshot is determined to take care of Daddy, even though Magic says to let it go, that they're living their lives and they should ignore Daddy.   Bloodshot can't: Daddy has abused Magic, is threatening Bloodshot's family, and Bloodshot simply can't live with these facts without at least trying to do something.  

 

All three issues are bleeding together, so I'm going to leave it here.  This series is beautiful, haunting, heartbreaking and hopeful.   And I would expect no less from Jeff Lemire, the writer.   The fact that the art is gorgeous is a bonus, but I was in this for Lemire and Bloodshot alone. I was hoping for gorgeous art, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me.

Loving this!
BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 CVR A ROCAFORT - VALIANT

Just absolutely loving this series, even though it's just started.   Bloodshot is setting down with Magic, and their baby girl, Jessie.    

 

Of course, nothing stays that good that long, and Bloodshot doesn't wait for the bad to coming looking for them.  He goes looking for it, to try and stop it before it gets to them.   Except he might not be looking at the right bad, the one that's really threatening them all...

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-08-12 01:01
Into challenges... I've returned to world of Vampires...
Bloodshot - Cherie Priest

I've been increasingly dissatisfied with quite a number of vampire books. Especially if there's a female vampire that's the main character.

 

Somehow, despite the fact that the main character (female) is a vampire, she still has to be rescued by the macho manly vampire.

 

It's not cool anymore.

 

Let's talk a bit about vampires.

 

They're walking corpses, true, but the mythology and legends around them don't necessarily deviate: eternally young, don't love silver, don't sparkle (especially don't sparkle), strong as all get-out, possible sun affliction (the mythology isn't clear on that-- some sources will say they boil and melt, some say that they aren't affected whatsoever). Possibly could be staked or beheaded as a way of killing them, but good luck getting close enough.

 

That being said, I still don't understand the author's that don't realize the mythology for what it is: male or female vampire makes no difference.

 

In the end, they can still rip out your throat without a normal person being able to do anything about it.

 

That being said, let's talk about Bloodshot, by Cherie Priest.

 

What I enjoyed most about this author and her work with vampires is that the lead character is a female vampire and she kicks total ass.

 

Cheshire Red is a thief. A damn good one.

 

In her other role as Raylene Pendle, she's a detective.

 

Blind vampire Ian Stott contacts Raylene-- he wants her to retrieve some documents from a secure lab about a time when he was captive by a very classified government group and experimented on; he believes the surgeon he's in contact with can find a way to restore his sight with the help of the information.

 

The problem with retrieving the information is that it won't help Ian.

 

On the contrary,  it puts a big target mark on Ian and Raylene.

 

Well, killing the bad guys is a dirty job, but hey, more blood for the vampire, right?

 

What Raylene uncovers is a cruel and sadistic group of people that were interested in the supernatural side of things. And though the experiment was shut down, those that were involved wanted to resume things immediately.

 

This book was a refreshing read. There was no doubt that Raylene is a vampire and isn't afraid of anyone really knowing because they're not going to walk away, you know.
