Valiant Announces Prestige Format for The Analog Man


Ad-free is all the rage these days. Valiant got that memo as well, planning to offer a Valiant Prestige edition of Bloodshot Reborn #10. Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa's work will debut in the special format, offering a special, ad-free presentation featuring laminate card-stock covers and custom-designed heavyweight end sheets for the standard $3.99 cover price. The issue will feature covers by LaRosa, Ryan Sook, Dave Johnson, Jeffrey Veregge, Tula Lotay, David Lafuente and Jeff Lemire.

"'THE ANALOG MAN' is a milestone for one of Valiant’s biggest characters, due in no small part to the positively jaw-dropping artwork of Lewis LaRosa. There simply aren't any other comics on the stands that look this good or feel this epic,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Not only is BLOODSHOT REBORN #10 a perfect jumping-on point for new readers, it's an example of comic book storytelling at its finest. Jeff Lemire and Lewis LaRosa are throwing off sparks with each new page that comes in and we knew right away that nothing short of the acclaimed VALIANT PRESTIGE format would give THE ANALOG MAN the blockbuster treatment it deserves."

Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland and the once unstoppable killing machine known as BLOODSHOT has become THE ANALOG MAN. Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot’s taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life – Magic – and protecting a group of stragglers who’ve weathered the storm. But when a gang of marauders arrives, the settlement’s survival is threatened, and Bloodshot is forced to bring justice to the distorted and disjointed badlands of the Valiant Universe!
