So let it be written… So let it be done…
This summer, witness the death of Ninjak…learn the final fate of Bloodshot…see the redemption of Toyo Harada…meet the next bearer of the X-O Manowar armor…herald the next generation of Valiant heroes…and witness the rise of villainous forces not yet known… We know it will be…because the Book of Geomancer tells us so!
Valiant has announced Book of Death – the epic new Valiant event of 2015! Beginning with in July with Book of Death #1 (of 4) from writer Robert Venditti, superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite, 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?
Also coming in July, the future of the Valiant Universe continues with four visionary tales of present and future torn directly from the pages of the Book of the Geomancer! Each month, join an all-star cast of creators – Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite, Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine, Joshua Dysart and Kano, and Robert Venditti and Clayton Henry – as they come aboard the summer’s monumental comics event to chronicle the ultimate fate of Valiant’s biggest heroes! From the modern day to the far future, the destinies of Bloodshot, Ninjak, the Harbinger Renegades, X-O Manowar, and more will stand revealed in four essential, standalone chapters at the epicenter of Book of Death:
