First Look: Joshua Dysart and Kano Reach a Cosmic Reckoning in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER #1 – Coming in September!
A showdown. An apocalypse. An ending. This September, the twin forces behind the rise and fall of the Harbinger Foundation collide once and for all in a devastating new chapter of BOOK OF DEATH!
Valiant is proud to present the first look inside BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER #1 – an essential standalone chapter of the summer’s cataclysmic event, BOOK OF DEATH, from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER, IMPERIUM) and blockbuster artist Kano (THE DELINQUENTS, Swamp Thing)! This September, the dawn of the new Dark Age foretold in the Book of the Geomancer continues with a glimpse into the future of the Valiant Universe…and the revelation of the long-awaited final reckoning between the world’s two most powerful psiots…Peter Stanchek and Toyo Harada!
Many years from today, Peter Stanchek, the Renegades, the Harbinger Foundation, the Bleeding Monk, and Toyo Harada’s Imperium all reach their terminus, as the entire planet becomes the battlefield for the most devastating psionic combat humanity has ever seen. The Great Destroyer, long prophesied and foreseen, comes to Earth at last. Who will survive…and what will be left of them?
This September, join all-star creators Joshua Dysart and Kano for a journey to the far end of the Geomancer’s BOOK OF DEATH to reveal the final, unavoidable end for two of the Valiant Universe’s most powerful foes in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF HARBINGER #1 – an all-new one-shot featuring covers by Raul Allen (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR), Francis Portela (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), Ryan Lee (RAI), and Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH)!
