Bloodshot Reborn #2 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

I didn't realize last issue that the fake Bloodshot that shot up the theater may have had the real Bloodshot's nanites in him.  Unfortunately, the title page spoils this revelation by telling me that, rather than letting me find out myself on the first page.  Hello, pet peeve #1.  It's been a while.

Ray can apparently sense the nanites, allowing him to head straight to the killer.  Lemire doesn't tell us how he can sense them or even how they still exist after Kay purged Ray of them, but I'm sure that we'll get there at some point.  After Ray kills him and re-absorbs them, he finds that he's still in control.  Moreover, another fake Bloodshot opens fire, this time at a mall.  It implies to me that the nanites might be spread across several killers, and Ray is going to have to go killer-to-killer to collect all the nanites.  But, the open question is whether he'll still be in control when he completes that task.  Meanwhile, a group of "True Detective" archetypes are on the trail of the killers, meaning that they'll likely run into Ray soon.

This series continues to be different from any other one that I'm reading.  It's really a welcome addition to my pull list.

*** (three of five stars)
