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!

First Look: Jeff Lemire and Butch Guice Begin “THE HUNT” in BLOODSHOT REBORN #6 – Coming in September!

BSRB_006_COVER-A_SUAYANThis September, Eisner Award-nominated superstar Butch Guice joins New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire to send Bloodshot into…THE HUNT!

Valiant is proud to present the first look inside BLOODSHOT REBORN #6 – the FIRST ISSUE of “THE HUNT” from master storytellers Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Descender) and artist Butch Guice (NINJAK, Captain America)! This September, jump on board here as the one of the year’s most acclaimed new ongoing series begins its second shocking story arc…and Bloodshot’s crusade to destroy his own deranged doppelgängers takes a disturbing new turn!

Bloodshot is on the hunt. Determined to stop the violent reign of terror that plagues Colorado, Bloodshot must journey across the Rocky Mountains to destroy the remaining nanites that have caused mass murderers to spring up across the state. But will the drugs, booze, and insane visions rattling around his head put an end to his journey before it begins?

“In the first arc of BLOODSHOT REBORN, Jeff introduced several Bloodshot doppelgängers – individuals who were infected with nanites and became violently psychotic as a result,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Bloodshot knew what was happening – that these killers couldn’t handle the power of the nanites and were going mad as a result – and stepped into action to stop them from killing again. But at the close of issue #5, we’ll see that he’s not the only one who’s taken an interest in the killers…”

This September, Jeff Lemire and Butch Guice begin an action-packed new mission for Valiant’s most unrelenting hero in “THE HUNT” – an all-new story arc beginning in BLOODSHOT REBORN #6! Featuring covers by Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Glenn Fabry (Preacher), Garry Brown (The Massive), Steve Lieber (Whiteout), and Benjamin Marra (Strange Tales), start reading here with an brand new jumping-on point for one of the year’s most praised new series debuts:

“A wonderful new series… BLOODSHOT REBORN is a perfect mix of action and emotion.” – Ain’t It Cool News

“Lemire’s writing is pitch perfect… [BLOODSHOT REBORN is] a book you need to check out…” – Multiversity Comics

“Jeff Lemire is breathing a new life into this character… I cannot recommend this book enough. Pick it up.” – Comic Vine

“One of the stronger comics that the year has given us so far…[and] an essential addition to any comic fan’s pull list.” – All-Comic

“It really feels like we’re getting something new… [BLOODSHOT REBORN] continues to engross…” – IGN

[BREAKING] io9 Reveals the Dark Secret of Valiant’s BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4) – Coming in September!

BOD_003_COVER-A_NORDAt last, the force behind BOOK OF DEATH can be revealed…

Today at io9, Valiant announced a major revelation at the heart of the upcoming BOOK OF DEATH event – coming this summer from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti with art by Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite – and revealed the return of one of Valiant’s most iconic villains, Master Darque, in the pages of September’s BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4)!

Beginning in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) on July 15th, Valiant’s cataclysmic, four-issue event collides the next thousand years of history with the most powerful heroes of today! 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.

Now, for the very first time, the force behind the terrible future chronicled in the Book of the Geomancer will 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 Fist and Steel himself…Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior!

“I can tell you that Darque has been waiting a very long time for this opportunity,” writer Robert Venditti told io9. “He has found a way to access the power of the Geomancer, though only in a limited way, which is absolutely something that he’d like to change. Enter the Eternal Warrior and the new Geomancer, Tama – both of whom have committed themselves to the fight, even if they don’t quite know who exactly they’re fighting against.”

Master Darque is the Valiant Universe’s most powerful necromancer – a sorcerer with an absolute and bitterly destructive agenda against life itself. Born Nicodemo Darque on a Louisana plantation in 1812 alongside his twin sister Sandria, Darque spent the subsequent decades seeking magical knowledge in realms beyond our own in a perverse attempt to both indefinitely extend his own life and master the dark arts. Frequently opposed by the hero known as Shadowman throughout the ages, Darque was last seen trapped in the spirit realm known as Deadside…but will return to the world of mortal men on July 15th in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) as he turns nature against humanity and challenges the Eternal Warrior for control of the Geomancer!

“Master Darque is one of Valiant’s most iconic characters, let alone villains, and this is the first time that we will see him unleashed in full on the heroes of the Valiant Universe,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Tama comes from a future where Darque has already succeeded and she knows the darkness that awaits humanity firsthand. But the revelation of Darque as the inciting force behind BOOK OF DEATH is only the first of many secrets that have yet to be revealed in this series… The first appearances of major new characters, defining moments for some of our most prominent heroes, and glimpses of the future that’s coming… This is a series that readers will be returning to for years to come.”

This September, the fall of the Valiant Universe continues…and Master Darque makes his bid for victory, only in BOOK OF DEATH #3 (of 4) – featuring covers by Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Clayton Crain (RAI), Stephen Segovia (Convergence), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT)!

Don’t miss a moment of the summer’s can’t-miss event as all-star creators Robert Venditti, Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite forge the next thousand years of the Valiant Universe…and rain fire, blood, and war on the heroes of today, beginning on July 15th in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4)!

First Look: Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite Chronicle BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1 – Coming in July!

BOD-BLOODSHOT_001_COVER-A_SANDOVALValiant is proud to present the first look inside BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1! On July 22nd, New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Descender) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (IMPERIUM, Justice) join the summer’s monumental comics event to chronicle Bloodshot’s ultimate fate in a visionary tale of present and future torn directly from the pages of BOOK OF DEATH!

The lovers he’s known, the allies he’s trusted… All will eventually return to dust… But will the nanites that transformed Bloodshot – body, mind and soul – ever let him truly rest? For the very first time, read an essential chapter of the Book of the Geomancer as Project Rising Spirit’s ultimate walking weapon soldiers on from the modern day into the far future of the Valiant Universe…and reveals the truth behind what could be the very last Bloodshot story that will ever come to pass…

Don’t miss the never-before-revealed story of Bloodshot’s final adventures as BOOK OF DEATH foretells the devastating fate of Valiant’s unrelenting soldier from now to a thousand years hence on July 22nd, only in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1 – featuring covers by Rafa Sandoval (X-O MANOWAR), Jefte Palo (Thunderbolts), David Yardin (X-Factor), and Tom Fowler (QUANTUM AND WOODY)!

Plus: don’t miss the essential first chapter of the blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4)! 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 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?

Find out on July 15th in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4)…and then watch as Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite forge the future of the Valiant Universe in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1 on July 22nd!
