“Free Comic Book Day” is currently underway and I was on point at my local retailer of Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn nice and early to take advantage of the titles being offered before any of them ran out of the supply. Let’s head inside and start browsing and making some critical choices of what to fill our bag with.
Last month I did a quick overview of the titles that interested me the most and if you feel like checking that summary out just click HERE. Fortunately all of the issues that I wanted and then some were available. Let’s examine in visual together, I will not be saying much along the way.
Have you started your countdown yet? I’m asking because the NY Comic Con is pretty much around the corner at this point and with that means some special announcements about exclusive items that you can get while you are there. As I’ve done with the SDCC event a couple of times, I’m going to aim at keeping our readers informed on the awesome items they can spend some of their hard earned cash on. Check this item out that comes care of Valiant Entertainment.
The Press Release:
Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce an exclusive, first-of-its-kind “Bloodshot Bear” debuting at New York Comic Con 2017 (NYCC)!

Hey gang so here we are with the final grouping of July Comic Book solicitations and now its Valiant Entertainment’s turn at the helm. Their latest initiative is called the “Book Of Death” and its sure to leave their universe torn asunder. Eventually that is. Let’s check out the provided press copy and some cover art and then I will come back later with some opinions.
Book Of Death #1: “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.
For many months I have been broadcasting both the upcoming first issues for the Marvel Comics and DC Comics lines and with our revising the way that the PiercingMetal.com website is entertaining its readers I am proud to add similar posts that outline what you can count on coming from the folks over at Valiant Comics. As you have seen with the other posts, I will be presenting the artwork and a brief from the official press copy that I get sent and here we go with two upcoming mini-series. Each of these titles will run for three issues.
Armor Hunters: Bloodshot #1: (Writer: Joe Harris, Penciller: Trevor Hairsine). The hunters become the hunted! With the major capitals of Earth under siege by the Armor Hunters, the world’s most dangerous weapon has decided to come in from the cold – and into the service of the top-secret Military Extraterrestrial Reconnaissance Outpost (M.E.R.O.)! But when one of the Armor Hunters’ own stages an extraterrestrial jailbreak inside of M.E.R.O.’s fortified command center, the nanite-enhanced commando known as Bloodshot will become the last thing standing between the galaxy’s most feared team of hunter-killers and a classified arsenal of secret weapons far too deadly for human hands! (c/o Valiant Press Office). Continue reading Valiant Comics #1’s Coming In July 2014→
