Presenting Valiant’s BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 Body Count Contest – Running Through August 23rd!

Before the first issue of the fall’s blockbuster new ongoing series slams into comic shops everywhere on September 20th, Valiant is proud to announce the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 Body Count Contest – a back-issue scavenger hunt challenging readers to tabulate the number of kills that Valiant’s nanite-enhanced soldier has racked up since his bone-breaking return in 2012!

Break out your longboxes to recount all of Bloodshot’s greatest exploits, and then post your guess to Twitter by August 23rd, just before BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the BLOCKBUSTER NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Moon Knight) and explosive artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN) – sends Ray Garrison back into the line of fire!

Bloodshot has finally found peace alongside his true love, Magic, and their newborn daughter, Jessie. But soon, he will be drawn back into the world of violence and bloodshed that created him for a bone-breaking mission of revenge! It will be his darkest, most vicious assault yet…and none of his hundreds of firefights, showdowns, and no-holds-barred battles–from BLOODSHOT to ARMOR HUNTERS to THE VALIANT and beyond–will prepare him for the savagery that lies ahead.

Now, with Ray Garrison’s most brutal mission just around the corner in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, the question still stands: Just how many evil-doers and enemies have fallen at Bloodshot’s hand?

The official tally will soon be revealed in the “Bloodshot’s Body Count” bonus feature, available only in the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 RAMPAGE REDUX edition – a FREE, LIMITED EDITION, and FULL-LENGTH COMIC BOOK polybagged alongside the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 PRE-ORDER EDITION — on September 20th. Available only as a pre-order exclusive, the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 RAMPAGE REDUX is the complete look into Ray Garrison’s violent past, complete with other revelatory bonus features like “Top-Secret Mission Reports,” “The Biology of Bloodshot,”  and “The Complete History of Bloodshot”…along with a complete black and white presentation of BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1!

But, before that day comes to pass, Valiant is spot-checking with the most knowledgable fans in comics with the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 Body Count Contest! Do you think you know Bloodshot better than anyone else? Then send your count with these simple instructions:

1) Estimate your total of Bloodshot’s definitive on-panel kills between BLOODSHOT #1 (2012) and across all Valiant titles released by August 1st, 2017. Make as many guesses as you want, or scour through your back issues and collections for a more accurate number!

2) Post your estimate to the official Valiant Twitter account using the hashtag #BLOODSHOTBODYCOUNT between now and August 23rd, 2017.

3) Participants with the winning number will have their name printed in the BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 RAMPAGE REDUX!

4) Valiant will randomly pick one participant with the winning number for the grand prize: A Bloodshot Salvation prize pack and BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 GOLD EDITION!

5) Valiant will then randomly pick five other participants with the winning number for the second prize: A BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1 GOLD EDITION!

A bloody and vengeful new beginning for Jeff Lemire’s Eisner Award-nominated Bloodshot saga begins here on September 20th as Ray Garrison escapes his violent past to build the one thing he never thought he’d earn: a family. But when a hateful secret from his true love’s past threatens their fragile peace, Bloodshot will be forced to run headlong into a barrage of blood, bullets, and broken bones for a revenge-fueled assault that will have crushing consequences for those he holds most dear…
