New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Green Arrow) and rising superstar Mico Suayan (HARBINGER, Moon Knight) continue their bold reimagining of this classic Valiant icon!

The man once known as the unstoppable killing machine called BLOODSHOT must track down the impostors carrying out mass shootings in his former name. But the hunter becomes the hunted when an upstart FBI investigator and her grizzled partner believe the original Bloodshot himself to be responsible for the murders. Can Bloodshot elude the agents – and his own inner demons – long enough to take out a nanite-infused gunman?

First Look: BOOK OF DEATH #1 – The Future Stands Revealed in the Epic Valiant Event of Summer 2015!

BOD_001_COVER-A_GILLSo 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 in the must-read event of the summer!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – the 40-page FIRST ISSUE of the blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, Green Lantern) and the twin artistic talents of rising star Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER, Batgirl) and Valiant heavyweight Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS, 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?

Beginning in BOOK OF DEATH #1, each 40-page chapter of Valiant’s cataclysmic event epic features a full-length installment of the Valiant heroes quest for the Book of the Geomancer, illustrated by Robert Gill. Then, discover essential visions of tomorrow with never-before-seen sequences of the future, torn directly from the pages of the Geomancer’s book and featuring artwork by Doug Braithwaite! 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!

On July 15th, the Book of the Geomancer spells doom for Valiant’s most powerful forces in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR), 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). Start reading here as all-star creators Robert Venditti, Robert Gill, and Doug Braithwaite begin a thousand-year journey into 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 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 summer’s monumental comics event to chronicle the ultimate fate of Valiant’s biggest and 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:

Red-hot writer Ales Kot (Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier) and rising star Adam Gorham (Zero) start the countdown to DEAD DROP as an unlikely cast of superhuman operators fall in deep for an undercover conspiracy action thriller in the darkest corners of the Valiant Universe…

There is a secret black market in New York. It is hidden in plain sight – in our streets, trains, restaurants. Those who know how to navigate it exchange secrets of extraordinary nature. But when the secret in circulation is a biological weapon derived from Vine technology, the gloves are off – and the most extraordinary agents are released to stop the disaster before it occurs. Otherwise, in less than thirty minutes, there will be no world to come back to. X-O Manowar, Archer, Neville Alcott, Detective Cejudo and Betamax are ready to save the world.
