Valiant will be unveiling a new deluxe ultra-coated cover process this July with Book Of Death #1. The process is said to feature alternating matte and varnish finished on heavyweight cover stock. So retailers can get an idea of what these covers are like, the publisher will be sending out sample printings of Book Of Death #1 with the deluxe ultra-coated covers (can we get an acronym or knickname for this) before June 22nd, the books final order cut-off date. If you're a retailer and want to make sure you get a sample, you can contact Valiant at email@example.com
I hear if you're not a retailer and use that email address, Bloodsquirt comes to visit you late at night and it's not pleasant.
For fans to get a look at Valiant's new summer event, there will be Inside the Book of Death, a six-page preview running in the Valiant titles shipping in June. Book of Death #1 is written by Robert Venditti and drawn by Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite.
