As the Bloodshot movie starring Vin Diesel is about to be released in China on July 24th, the action star is appearing on the FCDB offering from Valiant Comics Wednesday July 22nd. The Bloodshot story in the issue will also feature the comic book debut of some of the characters that appear in the film. In addition to the story starring Valiant’s nanite infused super-soldier, the comic will also feature a new story starring X-O Manowar by writer Joshua Dysart and artist Doug Braithwaite. Dysart, a Valiant fan favorite creator, will be writing a solo story starring the time-displaced barbarian for the first time. All his previous work on the character involved guest appearances and crossover, so it will be interesting to see his take on the character without those restrictions. You can view the full press release below as well as preview pages.
