Bloodshot’s Day Off
Even killing machines need a day off!
For the first time in over 30 years, two nanite-enhanced soldiers once controlled by Project Rising Spirit – codenames: “Tank Man” and “Viet Man” – have finally earned their freedom and some government-sanctioned downtime, courtesy of Uncle Sam. After enduring a lifetime of war, blood, and fore, all these two semi-retired commandos want is a little vacation. But how long can this pair of highly trained tourists unwind and enjoy the sights of New York City… before they find trouble in the city that never sleeps?
Leave the selfie stick at home as rising star Eliot Rahal (Divinity III: Escape from Gulag 396, The Doorman) and Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans (Harbinger, Harley Quinn) give these old soldiers the danger-filled day off they deserve… and celebrate Bloodshot’s silver anniversary with an action-packed tribute to the original BLOODSHOT #12!

Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers
BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands have announced SABAN’S GO GO POWER RANGERS, an all-new ongoing comic book series based on the original, hit TV series “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.” The series will explore the transition of the original five Rangers from ordinary high schoolers to world-saving superheroes. Ryan Parrott returns to BOOM! Studios and the Power Rangers franchise after his work on the sold-out, original graphic novel, Power Rangers: Aftershock. Parrott is teaming with Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora.
Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers is set after the first episode of “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” and centers around Jason, Kimberly, Zack, Trini, and Billy as they navigate high school, just days after receiving their superhero abilities. The story delves into their lives of saving the world while juggling history tests, dating and after-school jobs.
“It’s hard enough being a teenager and juggling relationships, school, and family — I can’t even imagine throwing in protecting the world,” says Parrott. “The goal of Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers is to focus on more personal, intimate character stories. We dive deeper to fully examine the wish-fulfilling, awesomeness of having superpowers, along with the pressure of that responsibility.”

Written and drawn by alt-pop phenomenon Lights, Skin and Earth ties directly into her next full length album, released in Fall 2017 on Warner Bros Records.
