In his decade-plus as a comics writer and artist, Jeff Lemire has worn a lot of different hats: Indie darling, trailblazing Vertigo comics creator, DC Comics' go-to superhero writer.
Now, he's found something like a middle road. He's got a superhero book with an indie flair (Hawkeye), a creator-owned book with big sci-fi ambitions (Descender) and a new Valiant Comics series unlike anything he's ever done before: Bloodshot: Reborn, which is such a vastly new take on the character that plot details are hard to come by.
We talked with Lemire about his somewhat daring take on Valiant's most violent character, and also posed some questions about his varied career.
Those of you who have been keeping up with Valiant may have wondered just what's in store for Bloodshot (the character who has the best, most '90s comics name of all time) in the future. He's currently teaming up with the rest of the universe (including Ninjak) in the pages of The Valiant, but that's only a four-issue miniseries, so what comes next? Well, if the art for the new Bloodshot: Reborn ongoing series is any indication, we know exactly what he's going to be doing for the forseeable future.
Leinil Francis Yu, Gerry Alanguilan, JB Casacop, Allen Geneta, and Mico Suayan are just a few of the comics artists who will be taking part in a huge art auction to raise money this weekend for their home country of The Philippines and for Bayan Knights co-creator Vergil Espinosa, who recently suffered liver failure.
The auction will be part of the annual Komikon convention in the city of Pasig, which is going ahead this Saturday in spite of the recent devastation of Typhoon Haiyan.
