Westfield: For readers who are unfamiliar with Bloodshot, what should they know going in?

Tim Seeley: He’s a genetically engineered superweapon gone rogue, who’s doing his best to make up for the body count he was responsible for while under government control! And he looks really cool!

Westfield: Bloodshot faces the new threat of Black Bar. Anything you can tell us about this group?

Seeley: They’re so deep state they don’t even know their own name or who they work for. They’re the elite of the elite, and they have all of the cool toys.

Westfield: There’s a lot going on in this first issue. How do you balance action with more dialog driven sections?

Seeley: The magic of comics! The job is to give readers an even pace, and plenty to come back for, so I make sure to give the reader stuff to read and care about while also giving them plenty of Brett Booth/Adelso Corona/Andrew Dalhouse beauty!

Westfield: You’re working with artist Brett Booth on the series. What can you say about your collaboration?

Seeley: It’s pretty cool for me, a teenager in the ’90s, to work with an artist whom I followed from the beginning. I write things I think he’ll draw the hell out of and then he does it!
