First Look: Master Darque Begins the Fall of the Valiant Universe in BOOK OF DEATH #3 – Coming in September!

BOD_003_COVER-A_NORDThis September, the mysterious force behind the fall of the Valiant Universe stands revealed…as Master Darque descends on the Eternal Warrior!

Valiant is proud to present the first look inside BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4) – the third can’t-miss chapter of Valiant’s cataclysmic summer event from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) and blockbuster artists Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER) and Doug Braithwaite (IMPERIUM)! On September 23rd, Valiant’s most sinister villain – the maleficent Master Darque – reemerges to destroy the Eternal Warrior…and reshape the future of the Valiant Universe in his own twisted image!

The terrible future chronicled in the Book of the Geomancer continues to reveal itself as an unexpected and untold player…Master Darque…emerges to make his bid for control of the Earth’s newest Geomancer! But does the reappearance of history’s most powerful necromancer mean an apocalyptic future has been avoided…or guaranteed? As the heroes of the Valiant Universe fall and nature itself turns on humanity, all that stands between the devastated planet and ultimate evil is the Earth’s undying Fist and Steel himself…Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior!

On September 23rd, Valiant superstars Robert Venditti, Robert Gill, and Doug Braithwaite force BOOK OF DEATH toward a century-shattering crossroads as Master Darque returns…and the Earth shudders in his wake…only in BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4)! Featuring covers by Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Clayton Crain (RAI), Stephen Segovia (NINJAK), Pere Pérez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT), the last stand of Valiant’s greatest heroes continues right here in the sold-out, smash-hit event that is taking fans and critics by storm:

“9/10… [An] epic crossover done right… [BOOK OF DEATH] has all the makings of another instant classic from the always entertaining Valiant Universe.” – Bloody Disgusting

“★★★★1/2… Epic… Valiant has a hit on their hands. This is definitely one to check out…” – Comics Bulletin

“It really is the best kind of crossover… BOOK OF DEATH is a bold entry point into the Valiant Universe and, for long time fans, a crossover that seems to validate tons of long-term stories.” – Multiversity Comics

Valiant Unveils Complete Covers for WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – Featuring David Lafuente, Raúl Allén, Cary Nord, Marcos Martin, and More!

WRATH_001_COVER-A_LAFUENTE_cropValiant is proud to debut the complete covers for WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, Green Lantern) and visionary artist Raúl Allén (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Hawkeye)! Out of the pages of BOOK OF DEATH…Valiant’s immortal master of war steps to the fore on November 18th for a daring new quest unlike anything he’s ever faced before!

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…

“[WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR] is a take on immortality that I don’t recall having seen before.” said series writer Robert Venditti. “It’s going to deal much more with immortality as a concept and focus a lot on the cost of being immortal. What does Gilad have to sacrifice in order to do what he does? And, even more importantly, why does he do it? Why does he sacrifice? Why does he fight for us when he could give up if he wanted to… We’ll be spending a lot of time on those kinds of themes, introducing ideas and conflicts that we haven’t ever seen him encounter before, right from page one.”

Featuring covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man, Batgirl), series artist Raúl Allén (NINJAK), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR, Conan), Marcos Martin (Amazing Spider-Man, The Private Eye), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT), the epic odyssey to the far end of eternity and back starts here on November 18th as master storytellers Robert Venditti and Raúl Allén forge an all-new legend for the Earth’s relentless immortal guardian in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1!

NINJAK_006_COVER-A_SUAYANBeginning in August, MI-6′s most dangerous master spy goes head-to-head against a gauntlet of deadly new enemies for…”THE SHADOW WARS”!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of NINJAK #6 – the FIRST ISSUE of “THE SHADOW WARS,” an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and visionary rising star Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR)! Start reading here on August 26th as Ninjak dices his way through the secret leadership of the Shadow Seven one member at time…and confronts four all-new enemies obsessed with bringing down MI-6 by any means necessary!

Ninjak went to Tokyo to destroy the shadowy Weaponeer arms cartel from the inside out, beginning with its secret council of shinobi masters…the Shadow Seven. Now, the world’s top super-spy is cutting his way through the four death-defying members – The Barbe, Fitzy, Fakir, and Sanguine – that stand between him and the one secret that still eludes him… Who really wields the power behind the world’s most powerful terrorist network? Who is the secret seventh member of the Shadow Seven? And what do they want with Colin King?

Then, Ninjak’s essential second feature, THE LOST FILES, continues in each 40-page issue of “THE SHADOW WARS!” Beginning in NINJAK #6, Matt Kindt and Eisner-nominated artist Butch Guice (Captain America) reunite to reveal how Colin King and Neville Alcott first met – and the deadly secret Neville has kept from his most valuable field agent! The second act of THE LOST FILES starts here!

On August 26th, all-star creators Matt Kindt, Raúl Allén, and Butch Guice bring the full might of the Shadow Seven crashing down on MI-6’s most elite intelligence operative when “THE SHADOW WARS” begin in NINJAK #6! Featuring covers by Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), and Clayton Henry (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), Ninjak’s latest mission ratchets up the stakes with an all-new jumping-on point for the series that Newsarama calls “a rollicking rollercoaster…of martial-arts infused espionage.”
