First Look: BOOK Valiant is proud to present the first look inside BOOK OF DEATH #2 (of 4) – the second can’t-miss chapter of Valiant’s cataclysmic summer event from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) and all-star artists Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY)! On August 19th, the Valiant Universe’s most powerful heroes join the hunt for the new Geomancer suspected of plunging the world into darkness… And, now, only the Eternal Warrior can protect her from his own former allies and prevent the events foretold in the Geomancer’s BOOK OF DEATH from coming to pass!
Convinced the unnatural disasters tearing our world apart are a direct result of the new Geomancer’s arrival, the combined forces of Unity – including X-O Manowar, Ninjak, Livewire, and GIN-GR – are about to confront the Eternal Warrior about the true nature of his powerful new charge! They’ve sworn to take him in by any means necessary…but, to prevent civilization from falling into a new Dark Age, the Eternal Warrior won’t go down without a fight! Can history’s most battle-hardened warrior convince his old comrades that peace can still be won? Or will war, blood, and fire consume the heroes of the Valiant Universe as they face the full fury of the Eternal Warrior unleashed for the very first time?
Be here on August 19th as Valiant superstars Robert Venditti, Robert Gill, and Doug Braithwaite detonate the next earth-shaking installment of Valiant’s colossal summer event in BOOK OF DEATH #2 (of 4) – featuring covers by Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Clayton Crain (RAI), Kano (THE DELINQUENTS), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Paolo Rivera (THE VALIANT)! 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 and beyond!
Plus: in the wake of BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – in stores July 15th – the must-read comic milestone of the 2015 continues all summer with four visionary tales of present and future ripped directly from the pages of the Book of the Geomancer!
