Valiant Entertainment has tapped Benny Potter (Comicstorian on YouTube) to write a backup story in the upcoming Bloodshot #12 that arrives in March.
For his debut as a comic writer, Benny will do what he does best: Recap Bloodshot’s story! This four-page tale, illustrated by Juan José Ryp, colored by Andrew Dalhouse, and lettered by Dave Sharpe, explores Bloodshot’s journey leading up to the compelling events in BLOODSHOT SALVATION. “Why SALVATION? Hint… we may have big plans for one of those characters,” teased Valiant Senior Editor Lysa Hawkins.
In a press release, Potter said, “Bloodshot at first looks like the normal gun-toting superhero, but as you dive deep into his history and lore a completely separate side comes out. While many heroes have a troubled background, he never truly knows if his even is a troubled background. He only knows snippets of his previous life, and everyone is constantly altering and changing it around. I think that mystery really adds to his character beyond every other hero in a similar boat. We don’t have a man with a troubled past, we have a man with no past. He is trying to find where he came from while forging a new life in front of him.”
Bloodshot #12 featuring a main story by Tim Seeley and artist Pedro Andreo will wrap up the current series. Bloodshot #12 is scheduled to arrive on March 10, 2021.
