Forgot to review this yesterday
Ninjak Vs. the Valiant Universe #1 - Eliot Rahal,Joe Bennett,Mico Suayan

Yesterday was buuuusy!   

 

Anyway, when Ninjak is blackmailed into stealing from MI6, it's him against the Valiant Universe.   Fun, showing what Ninjak will do in an extreme situation, and it promises a lot more tension.

Fabulous
Bloodshot Salvation #5 - Mico Suayan,Kenneth Rocafort,Jeff Lemire,Lewis LaRosa

Ray realizes how much he's screwed up, when Ninjak comes to save him with some snappy one-liners, and a sword. 

 

Still not sure what Ray's doing in the future, but I'm willing to let that story play out; I trust Lemire, and I trust this bit of storytelling in particular.

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.
