(Part 1): Foretold last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 05/19/18 08:39PM View full history

“A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once.”

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?

The blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 starts here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) joins superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) to begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant Universe…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today.

Book of Death #1 Review & **SPOILERS** 0

Valiant has really stepped up their game in the realm of events- The Valiant was a very solid four-issue arc, and I really liked both the story and the publication choices that Valiant made to have that series stand out on the shelf- I loved the heavy cardstock cover, and the matte finish, it really made the book really feel unique (I especially loved the subtle ghosted images on the inside covers of each issue as well). The Valiant really helped me to get over my dislike of the Eternal Warrior ...
