First Look: BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 – Jeff Lemire & Raul Allen Enter the Squirtverse in August!

BSRB_005_COVER-A_ALLENOn August 5th, Bloodshot and his lil’ buddy Bloodsquirt are teaming up for a mind-bending jumping-on point unlike anything else on the stands!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 – an essential standalone issue at the heart of the year’s critically acclaimed new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Descender) and special guest artist Raul Allen (Hawkeye)! Enter the hallucinatory world of Bloodshot’s demented cartoon sidekick as Bloodsquirt takes charge for trip into a realm beyond our own reality…a realm populated by other dark reflections of the Valiant’s greatest heroes…a realm that some dare to call the Squirtverse!

The memories of the thousands of people he killed as Bloodshot aren’t the only things that haunt Ray Garrison. For months now, the specter of the Geomancer and a nightmarish cartoon known as Bloodsquirt have tormented him at every turn. First, on his television…and now in the real world…where Bloodsquirt acts out twisted fantasies that darkly mirror Bloodshot’s own violent past. Are these apparitions real or a just figment of Bloodshot’s broken psyche? And just who are the other members of Bloodsquirt’s “Squirt Squad”…and what could they possibly be planning next?

Don’t be glum, chum…because, on August 5th, Bloodshot and his bloody little buddy Bloodsquirt are locked, loaded, and ready for action in BLOODSHOT REBORN #5 – featuring covers by Raul Allen (RAI), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), and Kano (THE DELINQUENTS)!

Valiant and ComicBook.com Team-Up for BOOK OF DEATH: CHAPTER ZERO – An Exclusive Weekly Webcomic by Robert Venditti & CAFU!

BOD_CHAPTER-ZERO_001_finalBefore Valiant’s colossal summer event begins in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) on July 15th…discover the shape of the cataclysm that is to come in BOOK OF DEATH: CHAPTER ZERO – an exclusive weekly webcomic beginning today, only at ComicBook.com!

The road to the year’s most monumental comics event starts here with an all-new, four-part prelude to BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and red-hot artist CAFU (UNITY)! Join the can’t-miss epic of the summer as the Eternal Warrior faces a wave of unnatural disasters that foreshadow a coming Dark Age for humanity…and tries to decide if the coming of the new Geomancer – the latest in a long line of ancient mystics he has sworn to protect – will save the world or doom it to an early extinction!

Beginning right now at ComicBook.com, look for a new installment of BOOK OF DEATH: CHAPTER ZERO each week in the lead-up to the release of BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (ARMOR HUNTERS, Green Lantern) and blockbuster artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR, Batgirl) and Doug Braithwaite (IMPERIUM, Justice) – available in comic shops and online on July 15th!

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?

Featuring the last stands of Valiant icons, the first appearances of all-new heroes, and tantalizing clues of future events, BOOK OF DEATH is the gateway to the next decade of the Valiant Universe that will have fans returning to each issue for years to come! The battle begins on July 15th as all-star creators Robert Venditti, Robert Gill, and Doug Braithwaite forge the future of the Valiant Universe…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today, only in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4)!

Plus: BOOK OF DEATH continues all summer with four visionary tales of present and future ripped directly from the pages of the Book of the Geomancer! Each month, join an all-star cast of creators as they come aboard the year’s monumental comics event to chronicle the ultimate fate of Valiant’s most indelible 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:

Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine.

Now, Bloodshot is a shadow of his former self. He lives in self-imposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad. But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving head-long into the violence that nearly destroyed him.

Start reading here as visionary creators Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan kick-off a brand-new beginning for the cutting-edge commando called Bloodshot…and plunge him to his darkest, bloodiest, most mind-bending depths yet!

First Look: Fred Van Lente and Juan José Ryp Decode BOOK OF DEATH: LEGENDS OF THE GEOMANCER #1 (of 4) – Coming in July!

BOD_GEOMANCER_001_COVER_SAUVAGEThis July, journey back to the dawn of the Valiant Universe to find out where the legend of the Geomancer began…and how a warrior mystic named Anni changed the course of humanity forever!

Valiant is proud to present the first look inside BOOK OF DEATH: LEGENDS OF THE GEOMANCER #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the first-of-its-kind, retailer-exclusive limited series from New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (IVAR, TIMEWALKER) and blockbuster artist Juan José Ryp (NINJAK)! For the very first time, discover the never-before-told origin of the ancient order of the Geomancers and the sacred warrior that began their line right here with a special, standalone companion to the upcoming BOOK OF DEATH event – available ONLY at your local comic shop!

At last, the saga of the very first Geomancer – a mysterious tribal warrior known only as Anni – and the sacred pact that swore her to the service of the Earth can finally be told…but, with it too, the source of the divine mysteries that have haunted the Geomancers’ line for centuries. But has Anni’s mission redeemed or corrupted the world that followed in her wake…and will the ultimate secrets of the Geomancers’ book doom us all in the end?

Before BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) rains fire, blood, and war on the most powerful heroes of today, all-star creators Fred Van Lente and Juan José Ryp reveal the never-before-told tale of the Earth’s first Geomancer on July 15th in BOOK OF DEATH: LEGENDS OF THE GEOMANCER #1 (of 4) – a special incentive limited series that won’t be made available digitally or collected for the trade! Featuring a cover by fan-favorite artist Marguerite Suavage (Thor Annual), contact your local retailer to find out how to reserve your copy of this standalone companion to the summer’s cataclysmic comic book event!

Created specifically to promote Valiant’s upcoming BOOK OF DEATH event, all four issues of BOOK OF DEATH: LEGENDS OF THE GEOMANCER will be printed in limited quantities and will only be made available to retailers who qualify based on their orders of BOOK OF DEATH #1-4 (of 4). Featuring a complete narrative wholly separated from the main BOOK OF DEATH event, BOOK OF DEATH: LEGENDS OF THE GEOMANCER stands on its own as a tale of the Valiant Universe’s prehistoric origins and can be read independently of any other BOOK OF DEATH tie-ins. Fans interested in obtaining this special incentive limited series should contact their local comics retailer to pre-order today!

Plus: also in stores on July 15th, the heroes of the Valiant Universe are all that stand between the present day and the dark future foretold in the Book of Geomancer in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (ARMOR HUNTERS, Green Lantern) and blockbuster artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice)!

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?

Featuring the last stands of Valiant icons, the first appearances of all-new heroes, and tantalizing clues of future events, BOOK OF DEATH is the gateway to the next decade of the Valiant Universe that will have fans returning to each issue for years to come! The summer’s must-read comics event begins on July 15th in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – and then the action continues in BOOK OF DEATH: LEGENDS OF THE GEOMANCER #1 (of 4), in stores the same day!
