Bloodshot Vol. 4: H.A.R.D. Corps

Authors:  Christos Gage & Joshua Dysart

Artist: Emanuela Lupacchino

Publisher:  Valiant Entertainment

Source:  Comixology

Graphic Novel Challenge #25

Collects Bloodshot & the H.A.R.D. Corps #s14-17 and Bloodshot #0

 What do you get when you combine two of my favorite authors (Christos Gage and Joshua Dysart) with great art?  In this case you get a good but not great series.  This is the fall out of “The Harbinger Wars” for both Bloodshot and the H.A.R.D. Corps team.  H.A.R.D. Corps was devastated by the events of the crossover and a new team is put together.  Dysart and Gage wrote a fun, high energy adventure story but I felt it was lacking in characterization.  The characterization was good but not up to the usual standard I have come to expect from these writers.  Meanwhile, the art is very good.  The story can be read on its own but has connections to the rest of the Valiant universe.

If you are looking for a solid adventure tale, this is the book for you.
