This weekend, Valiant’s must-read summer comics event, BOOK OF DEATH, is taking over Special Edition: NYC 2015 – a pure celebration of comic book culture created specifically for die-hard comic book fans, creators and publishers!

On Saturday, June 6th and Sunday, June 7th, join Valiant Entertainment at New York City’s Pier 94 for a weekend packed with BOOK OF DEATH giveaways and programming – plus special guests, creator signings, convention-only exclusives, new merchandise, and more from the best that the Valiant Universe has to offer.

It all starts at Booth #915, where fans can begin the march toward Valiant’s blockbuster summer event with free BOOK OF DEATH posters, bookmarks, and pre-order coupons, right here at Special Edition: NYC 2015!

Then, before BOOK OF DEATH lays siege to the Valiant Universe, catch up on Valiant’s sold-out new series with BLOODSHOT REBORN, IMPERIUM, NINJAK, and more – still available at the Valiant booth!

HPlus: the festivities continue all weekend with signings from an all-star cast of Valiant creators, including special guests Clay Mann (NINJAK), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR, ETERNAL WARRIOR: DAYS OF STEEL), and Fred Van Lente (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), and more!

Then, join an all-star roster of Valiant staff and creators on Sunday, June 7th at 1:30 pm and jump into summer’s most anticipated comic book event with the Valiant 25th Anniversary Celebration panel presentation! Everything you need to know about the unstoppable event series BOOK OF DEATH and what’s coming next for the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes starts right here with an all-star panel presentation featuring writers Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and Amy Chu (X-O MANOWAR #38), Valiant Editor-In-Chief Warren Simons and Valiant Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.

So let it be written… So let it be done… This summer, the next two thousand years of Valiant history collides with the most powerful heroes of today in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – the 40-PAGE FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s cataclysmic event from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (ARMOR HUNTERS, Green Lantern) and earth-shaking artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY)!

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 get your first clues of what’s to come this weekend at Special Edition: NYC 2015! We’ll see you in New York!

Not a day goes by that a scene from The Simpsons won’t run through his mind, oftentimes when walking his dog named Pants. His love of comics has only grown through the years as the medium continues to find innovative ways to tell stories, whether they’re about cape-wearing modern day myths serving justice or slice of life tales steeped in familiar experiences.
