BOD-NINJAK_001_COVER-A_KANOSo let it be written, so let it be done… On August 26th, all-star creators Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine reveal Ninjak’s final mission in an all-new vision of the future ripped directly from the pages of BOOK OF DEATH!

Valiant is proud to present the first look inside BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 – an essential installment to this summer’s monumental comics event from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (NINJAK, Mind MGMT) and Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY)! This August, the blockbuster creative team behind 2015’s breakout series, DIVINITY, reunites to reveal the final fate of Valiant’s deadliest master spy in an all-new standalone adventure!

In the ruins of his mansion, Colin King hunkers down as the last living member of Unity after the Third Armor Hunt – or so he thinks. A visit from an old friend and a peace offering present the chance for Ninjak to break the cycle of death and escape the horrible fate foretold in the Book of the Geomancer. Will he betray his dead friends or will THE FALL OF NINJAK come to pass and give rise to a very familiar future…?

On August 26th, join master storytellers Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine to discover the never-before-revealed future of MI-6′s most elite operative – and the Valiant Universe’s along with it – in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1! Featuring covers by Kano (THE DELINQUENTS), Clay Mann (NINJAK), Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH), and Das Pastoras (Thor: God of Thunder), find out why Ninjak will be the last warrior standing as the world falls to pieces in the next must-read chapter of BOOK OF DEATH!

Plus: don’t miss the essential first chapter of the blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – in stores July 15th! 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 right here!

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?

Find out on July 15th in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4)…and then watch as Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine forge the future of the Valiant Universe in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 on August 26th! Each month, in between issues of BOOK OF DEATH, Valiant’s cataclysmic summer event continues with a new standalone chapter from an all-star cast of Valiant superstars:

Unity may not survive the coming of War-Monger!

#ValiantSummit: Jen Van Meter and Roberto de la Torre Resurrect THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 – Coming in December!

DRM-SECOND_001_COVER_WADAJust announced at #ValiantSummit, live from Twitter headquarters in San Francisco…

In time, even the dead may die…and, this December, Valiant’s premier husband-and-wife paranormal investigation unit is all that stands between the mortal world and an unrelenting force hellbent on the annihilation of all souls…dead and alive!

Valiant is proud to announce THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) – the long-awaited follow-up to 2014′s hit series, THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE, from the returning creative team of Eisner Award-nominated writer Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre (Daredevil)! At last, the death-defying Doctors Mirage are back with the much-anticipated sequel to their critically adored, sold-out debut…and an all-new jumping-on point for one of the most sought-after couples in comics!

Shan and Hwen Mirage lived their lives thrall to an epic love that few will ever have…and died tragically before their time. Pulled back alone from beyond the brink of death, Shan thought she had lost her beloved husband and soulmate forever. But, gifted with the power to speak with the dead and armed with years of experience in the otherworldly, she braved the depths of the underworld and returned her husband’s lost spirit to the land of the living. Now reunited, Shan and Hwen once again have a bright future ahead of them…but Hwen is still an intangible spirit of the dead. Though his company is a comfort to Shan, he still cannot open a spell-book, lift an occult artifact, wield an instrument of power…or so much as touch his wife.

With their options exhausted, the death-defying Doctors Mirage are about to risk everything and enact a dangerous spell to restore Hwen’s solid form…and grant his ghost a second life. But, in the wrong hands, their ancient rite will become a tool of terror – and unleash a force of pure, homicidal evil that lusts for the murder of the living and the dead alike…a torturous death that obliterates not just everything a person ever had in this world, but everything their ghost will be in the next!

Now Shan and Hwen Mirage must stop the vile being they’ve unwittingly released…but even they can’t do it alone. And, soon, they’ll be forced to turn for help to the last devil they ever want to deal with…

“I’m thrilled that the response to the first series was such that Valiant wanted me to do more, and this seemed the most natural of the ideas to pursue next… This is a comic book about a kind of funny, but bad-tempered gal and her ghost husband fighting ghost crime and hanging with their witch friends and being awesome,” said writer Jen Van Meter. “But I’d love it if the the readers and we can get to the end and have shared a story that maybe says a couple thoughtful things about the hard work that goes into rebuilding a relationship after time apart and after, in some sense, serious injury.”

This December, the death-defying Doctors Mirage delve into the darkness behind the Valiant Universe for a daring new limited series adventure! Don’t miss the next installment of one of 2014′s most acclaimed new series here as Shan and Hwen Mirage discover the true price of love lost and devotion returned in THE DEATH-DEFYING DR. MIRAGE: SECOND LIVES #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Kevin Wada (She-Hulk) and more!

#ValiantSummit: Robert Venditti and Raul Allen Conquer WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – An All-New Ongoing Series Beginning in November!

WRATH_001_COVER_LAFUENTE_halfJust announced at #ValiantSummit, live from Twitter headquarters in San Francisco…

Valiant is proud to announce WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of AN ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and acclaimed artist Raul Allen (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Hawkeye)! Arriving in stores and online this November, Valiant’s latest ongoing series picks up in the aftermath of this summer’s colossal BOOK OF DEATH event series and will mark the first full-length Valiant series for illustrator Raul Allen, who has joined the publisher as an exclusive artist for the launch of WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR.

“From X-O MANOWAR to ARMOR HUNTERS to BOOK OF DEATH, Robert Venditti has played a key role in shaping the course of the Valiant Universe. Now, he’s bringing the same epic inspiration to WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR. You’ve never seen a comic book quite like this. You’ve never seen a story quite like this. It’s risky, it’s ambitious, and it’s awesome,” said Valiant Editor-in Chief Warren Simons.

“Helping us realize that vision is the phenomenally talented Raul Allen, who is quite simply one of the most exciting new voices in comics today,” he added. “Together, Rob and Raul make one hell of a team and WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR is going to be one hell of a series.”

For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior has shaped history at the end of his sword. He’s razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth.

But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he’s ever faced. Separated from his earthly environs, can history’s deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and fare more ruinous than anything he’s ever encountered before? Beyond Earth lies eternity…

“I can’t go into too many details without giving away spoilers about how BOOK OF DEATH is going to play out, but what I can say is that in the entire history of Gilad as a character – even going back to the original Valiant continuity – we’ve seen him face countless challenges in all sorts of locations throughout all sorts of eras,” said series writer Robert Venditti. “But I can promise you that what he’s going to face here is something that we’ve never seen him face before. It’s a completely new way of looking at the character and examining what he has to go through in order to be the Eternal Warrior.”

This November, master storytellers Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and Raul Allen (NINJAK) forge a new legend for the Valiant Universe’s immortal master of war with an all-new ongoing series in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – featuring covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), Marcos Martin (Amazing Spider-Man), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN)!

BOD_001_COVER-A_GILLJust announced at #ValiantSummit, live from Twitter headquarters in San Francisco…

With more than two weeks to go until the first issue of Valiant’s much anticipated summer event arrives in stores, BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) is already on track to become one of the best-selling independent comic book debuts of 2015!

BOOK OF DEATH is going to mark a major turning point in Valiant’s evolution as a publisher,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “The success of BOOK OF DEATH speaks volumes about the passion of our brilliant creators, our staff, and the retailers that have helped us reach this point.

Start reading here on July 15th 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):

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 #1 (of 4) is the gateway to the next decade of the Valiant Universe and beyond!
