I’ve seen some other stores reviving these, so I figure I would as well. Its always fun to get together and have discussions about books. We do it every week on the podcast, but this will be for an entire graphic novel.
I’m going to start with The Valiant TP. Valiant has been putting out really strong books and I’d love to get them a wider audience. Plus they are ridiculously supportive of comic book stores.
If you are interested, please let me know. I am offering 25% off purchases of the book (so The Valiant is only $7.50!) for the Book Club. But I need to know how many to order in. Josh is going to set up a sign-up thingy on the webite.
I am tentatively setting the date as Friday Feb 24th for the first one. We’ll get together and talk about the book. I’ll also record it for a special podcast for those that can’t make it or just want to hear what it’s all about.
What is The Valiant about?
The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.
