So here's the thing about being a genetically engineered super-soldier with nanite-infused blood that can heal you from even the most devastating injuries. The same thing that makes you great at getting your job done at all costs, surviving mission after mission to fight again? It also makes you great for training an even better super-soldier, because they can just keep on hunting you as you adapt and learn to become an even tougher opponent. It is, by all reasoning, the perfect way to make a killing machine.

And that, unfortunately, is what Bloodshot's about to find out firsthand when Valiant releases Jeff Lemire, Mico Suayan and David Baron's Bloodshot Reborn #14, which kicks off "Bloodshot Island," a story that introduces us to Deathmate and shows us just how she got so good at killing. Check out a preview below, but be warned: There's a Bloodshot Dog in this (which is great), but there's some bad stuff that's happening to him.

Live. Die. Rejuvenate. Each day, Bloodshot and his fellow castaways from Project Rising Spirit awake to find themselves hunted by the unstoppable engine of destruction called Deathmate. And each day, they die...only to begin their escape once more after the nano-technology inside them repairs their fatal injuries. As Bloodshot and his new teammates begin to understand the brutal logic behind their island prison, will the biggest threat to their survival be the horrors that await in the jungle around them...or each other?
On June 29th, terror comes ashore as the chart-topping BLOODSHOT REBORN launch team of Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan reunite…and send Ray Garrison screaming into AN ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT engineered for maximum damage! Doom, deception, and Deathmate await when "BLOODSHOT ISLAND" begins its hair-raising run through the jungle, only in BLOODSHOT REBORN #14 – featuring covers by a murderer’s row of comics talents, including Tomas Giorello (Conan), Ben Oliver (The Multiversity), Kano (Swamp Thing), Stephen Segovia (Superman), Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS), Darick Robertson (The Boys), and Jeff Lemire (Trillium)!
