- Every mission...is someone's last! Out of the ashes of Harbinger
Wars, Bloodshot is about to join the weaponized men and women of the
Harbinger Active Resistance Division — the black budget,
technologically-augmented strike force where the powers are dangerously unstable and every mission is a one-way ticket into the meat grinder. With a reluctant leader calling the shots and a new crop of untested rookies manning the frontline, Bloodshot is about to take H.A.R.D. Corps behind enemy lines, and into a gasoline-drenched, synapses-snapping suicide run where no one is safe...and heroes always die trying!

About the Author
In the words of Christos Gage...
I was born in New York, then grew up in Athens, Greece and North Grafton, Massachusetts. Started reading at age 3, discovered comics soon after. First comic collected and saved: Marvel's Godzilla. Never quit comics for girls the way some flip-floppers do, though I did keep it in the closet at times, for which I am deeply ashamed.

Bloodshot Volume 4: HARD Corps. This story arc brings back on of my favorite groups of people from the original Valiant Universt, HARD Corp. And with everything, while the basis of the character is similar, the execution in the new VU is somewhat different. In Bloodshot, HARD Corp are being used by PRS, at first to rescue Bloodshot from Harada, and then they form an uneasy alliance to work with PRS. That was one of the big problems I had with the story line at this point – I couldn’t see Bloodshot willingly siding with PRS and HARD Corp. The overall story lines seemed to get a little less coherent, (such as going BACK to Harada to retrive nanites from Bloodshots blood). In addition, the characters from HARD Corp seemed very flat and one dimensional – they tried to make them different, but they seemed very stereotypical, which is something I felt the HARD Corp characters from VH1 were not. One nice feature of this book is the inclusion of Bloodshot 0. You get to see a little of the back story about Bloodshot, although it also seemed a little disjointed. All in all, I was disappointed by this story arc, despite that fact I was very excited about the inclusion of HARD Corp. Perhaps I was hoping for too much, but the art seemed to be a little less than the previous issues, the story line was not as strong, and the arc itself didn’t deliver the same punch. I would rate it as two stars, but I still enjoyed it a little bit, so three stars it is.
