Attack of the the "undead hardass super-soldiers."

Yet another of Rob Liefeld's creations returns to Image Comics.  Bloodstrike #27 is a fun, cheesy, popcorn action book where blood and guts are spilled and harsh language is spewed across the page.  If readers are expecting deep character development, look elsewhere, but for an entertaining and over-the-top reading experience, it would be difficult to choose a better title.

Bloodstrike #27 is certainly a product of the 1990s, with enough uber-violence and sexy images to fit right back in the decade marked by gratuitous titles.  That’s not to say Bloodstrike is a bad comic; in fact it is far from it.  The cheesy action and over-masculine characters combined to create an incredibly fun title, one where the pages turned quicker than most books this week.  The highlight of Bloodstrike #27, for instance, featured the hulking Agent Stone brawling it out with a group of “undead hardass super-soldiers,” where scarabs are forced down throats, bullets destroy ancient skulls, and blood splatters across the concrete.  It is lighthearted fun moments like these that dominate Bloodstrike #27, saving the title from verging into the territory of “too serious.”

Bloodstrike does not attempt to reinvent the wheel, nor should it.  The fun and violent book serves its purpose of telling exciting, adult focused, action stories.  Hilarious moments pack almost every page, making Bloodstrike well worth the money, even just to test the waters.
