NYCC: Valiant Book of Death and Beyond Panel

image

Valiant did spend plenty of time yesterday discussing properties besides Bloodshot. They started with a plug for the conclusion of Book of Death arriving at the end of the month.  They promised that it would have major reverberations throughout the Valiant Universe. While this may sound like the typical boilerplate Event language, Valiant’s track record backs up previous claims. Harbinger Wars, Armor Hunters & The Valiant all sparked future stories in ways that never felt gimmicky. They did shift the status quo. So fans were told to keep an eye on The Eternal Warrior, who just happens to have a new series launching soon.

No Spoilers

This week, Valiant launches their summer event Book of Death. The plot pivots on the status of Geomancers, those individuals selected to be the voice of the Earth. In the recent series The Valiant readers witnessed the death of Geomancer Kay and the arrival of Geomancer Tama from the 41st Century. She has brought with her The Book of the Geomancers, which contains not only the grim fate of humanity, but also the individual ones for the heroes of the Valiant Universe. Valiant has teased that these various “Falls” will be revealed as part of the event.

This idea of revealing the future of the Valiant Universe has precedent. In 1992, the original Valiant did something similar. They had just completed their first line-wide crossover, Unity, and decided to offer their readers a glimpse into what might happen next. They released Rai #0 which told the story of the Valiant Universe from the present moment into the 41st Century. Along the way, the heroes continued fighting, some giving their lives in the process. Others simply succumbed to the passing of time. The immortal Armstrong disappears from recorded history, unable to handle his grief for the fallen Archer. It is a bold, sweeping feat of storytelling which holds-up over two decades later. (Jim Shooter, David Lapham, Bob Layton and Jon Hartz plotted the issue; Layton handled the script, while Lapham did the pencils).
