Death is coming to the Valiant universe this summer. Valiant Entertainment has released the first lettered preview for their upcoming mega summer event Book of Death #1 coming from Robert Venditti (ARMOR HUNTERS, Green Lantern) and blockbuster artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice).
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?
“[The Valiant heroes have] all fought together in the past, but now circumstances have lead them to oppose each other,” writer Robert Venditti told USA Today. “Friendship is one thing, but when the fate of the world hangs in the balance, every hero has to adhere to their own code.”
