Valiant is proud to present the first lettered preview of BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) - the 40-PAGE FIRST ISSUE of Valiant's cataclysmic event from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (ARMOR HUNTERS, Green Lantern) and blockbuster artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice)! So let it be written... So let it be done... On July 15th, the next two thousand years of history collide with the most powerful heroes of today right here in the must-read event of the summer!
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?
On July 15th, Valiant's most powerful heroes are all that stand between the present day and the Dark Age that is to come in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) - featuring covers by Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR, Conan), Clayton Crain (RAI, X-Force), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT, Daredevil)!
