Book of Death: The Fall of Bloodshot #1 [2015] Jeff Lemire | Doug Braithwaite

Book of Death: The Fall of Bloodshot sees Bloodshot walking and thinking of the past as he grows older. Bloodshot joins Armstrong as a pirate Captain Red Eyes on the sea to take on Rampage. Afterwards we see him settling down with Eskimos before being abducted by aliens to fight their robot wars. Later he is returned to Earth and killing dinosaurs until he becomes a hobo and dies in an alleyway. This issue is not what I had expected. I believe it will enhance the mythology of the character but just cheapens it with simplistic writing. The main Book of Death is also a disassociated mess. Valiant failed to live up with the expectations of the book as the classic Valiants are the ones to read.
