Bloodshot #1 and #2 Get Second Printings

Valiant has announced that the first two issues of Bloodshot are going to second printings.

Our friends at Valiant have announced that Bloodshot #1 and #2 are going back to press and getting a second printing.  What's interesting about this is that these issues came out over the summer (of Valiant), and are only getting reprinted in November.  It's possible that as word of mouth grows, more people are checking the book out and ordering from their retailers over time.  That's potentially a good thing for The Flyin' V.  Anyway, here's the press release, and the covers to the two second printings.


BLOODSHOT #1 and #2 Reload With Second Printings In November 
Valiant is proud to announce that Bloodshot #1 and Bloodshot #2 have sold out at the distributor level and will return to store shelves everywhere with second printings this November! Relive the sold-out debut of the dirtiest secret in the Valiant Universe with the Bloodshot #1 Second Printing Larosa Variant, featuring an all-new cover by acclaimed artist Lewis Larosa, and the Bloodshot #2 Second Printing Sketch Variant by red-hot artist Arturo Lozzi!
Your name is Angelo Mortalli. Your brother is trapped behind enemy lines and on the verge of — no. That’s not right. Your name is Raymond Garrison. You’ve retired from the dangers of the field, but a desperate plea from your oldest friend plunges you into a vicious firefight that — no. That’s not right, either. You are Bloodshot. You are the shade of gray that freedom requires. The perfect confluence of military necessity and cutting-edge technology. A walking WikiLeaks. A reservoir of dirty secrets that could set the world on fire. And you’ve just been captured.
"By sending Bloodshot back to press, every first and second issue in the 'Summer of Valiant' has gone into multiple printings," said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. "It's always been our priority to put quality storytelling above everything else, and the incredible response we've seen from fans and retailers is proof positive that the new Valiant Universe is the beginning of something big."
Duck and cover when Valiant's most dangerous undercover operative goes online this November with an all-new, armor-piercing mission for the past he thought he knew in the Bloodshot #1 Second Printing Larosa Variant and Bloodshot #2 Second Printing Sketch Variant! Before acclaimed writer Duane Swierczysnki launches Bloodshot into an all-new arc this November, go back to the beginning to find out why Bloodshot is the hit series that has taken fans and critics by the throat.
