Bloodshot is a man who has problems. A lot of problems. In the past, those problems have involved the usual thing where his body is constantly being subjected to ridiculously over-the-top trauma and the nanites in his blood that rebuild him every time, and the fact that he occasionally hallucinates a cartoon child version of himself called Bloodsquirt.

But in the upcoming Bloodshot Reborn Annual, there's a far more literal and pressing concern: A gigantic, indestructible slasher named "Jacob," who has been terrorizing a camp and needs to be taken down before he machetes any more unsuspecting teens. And yes: that's Jacob, and not... any other name you might be thinking of. Wink wink.

This marks the first-ever annual from Valiant, and in addition to the lead story from Jeff Lemire and Kano, it also includes backup stories from Ray Fawkes, Paul Maybury, and, in one of the more shockingly awesome announcements of the week, Michel Fiffe and Benjamin Marra. Check out a preview below!
