I love a good road trip as much as the next person, but I'll admit that I'm a little bit of a bad driver to ride with. I get a little nervous on busy highways, I like road snacks like Slim Jims that can stink up a small car, and generally speaking, I prefer podcasts to music, something that can put a bored passenger to sleep pretty easily. But, you know, even at my worst, I've never just straight up decapitated anyone with a ninja sword.

So that, at least, puts me one up on Ninjak, who has joined up with Bloodshot and his predecessors in the pages of Bloodshot USA #2. What happens when you cram five super-soldiers into a van and send them into a Manhattan full of nanite-enhanced killers? Read the preview below to find out!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #2 (of 4) – the next borough-burning chapter of the fall’s blockbuster standalone event from "THE FUTURE OF VALIANT"! On November 23rd, New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Death of X) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice) infect every city dweller from the Bronx to Broadway with the same nanite-enhanced technology that transformed Bloodshot into America’s most dangerous soldier! Now, as the population of New York City turns on itself, Bloodshot must race against the clock to infiltrate the quarantine zone and deactivate the virus before the entire nation starts seeing red!

With the flip of a switch, Project Rising Spirit has just infected every man, woman, and child in New York City with a designer “nanite virus,” instantly transforming them into hard-coded killing machines. Now, block by block, the citizens of America’s greatest metropolis are falling prey to their own destructive urges…and Bloodshot is the only soldier tough enough to go head-to-head with the entire Big Apple gone bad! With the humanity of an entire city on the line, Bloodshot is waging a one-man assault on Manhattan to root out the source of this machine-made infection before it hits the heartland… but will bullets and brute force be enough to stop the spread of a pandemic deadlier than anything in human history?

On November 23rd, superstar creators Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite are going to give the city that never sleeps a wake-up call as the most hostile comics event of 2016 heads into the heart of the concrete jungle in BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #2 (of 4) – featuring covers from Doug Braithwaite (NINJAK), Stephen Segovia (Action Comics), Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son), Darick Robertson (HARBINGER RENEGADES), and Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.)!
