Valiant’s Book of Death is coming!

Valiant announces BOOK OF DEATH – the epic new Valiant event of 2015!

Beginning with in July with BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, Green Lantern), superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill(ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER, Batgirl) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, Justice), BOOK OF DEATH continues throughout the summer with four standalone one-shots from an all-star cast of Valiant’s top talents! Colliding the next two thousand years of history against the most powerful heroes of today, the summer’s must-read comics event starts here in July as a new Geomancer emerges to build a bridge to the future of the Valiant Universe!

The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died.

Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.

Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over…or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?

“In the tradition of Valiant’s original RAI #0, BOOK OF DEATH is going to reveal glimpses of the future of the Valiant Universe and, with it, many of the monumental events and occurrences that our heroes will face,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Major characters will die, while others will be introduced for the very first time. The loves, the losses, and the betrayals that await our biggest characters…it all starts here. For the Geomancer, this future has already happened and, in each issue, we will see more of the events that shaped her life revealed. BOOK OF DEATH will have an immediate impact on not only the stories that follow it in 2015, but on the next decade of the Valiant Universe as well.”

BOOK OF DEATH is a story that’s been in the works for a long time, and I’m looking forward to showing readers what we have in store for them,” said writer Robert Venditti.

“Last summer’s ARMOR HUNTERS event was so much fun to write, and, while this story will have a much different focus and tone, our goal is to deliver the same level of action, character, and universe building. The Eternal Warrior and the Geomancer are such great high concepts to work with. We’re going to reveal exactly what it means to be the Fist and Steel of Earth and provide an epic showcase for not only the Eternal Warrior, but all of Valiant’s heroes present and future.”
