Book of Death #1 Reaps Instant Sell-Out, Second Printing Coming in August!

Via press release:

So let it be written… So let it be done… BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) is one of 2015’s most sought-after comic book debuts!
Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce that BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – the 40-page opening chapter of the summer’s cataclysmic summer event and the publisher’s highest selling new series debut to date – has sold out at the distributor level just days after its initial release and will return with the BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING on August 19th, alongside BOOK OF DEATH #2 (of 4)! 
Jump into the award-winning world of the Valiant Universe here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, Green Lantern) and all-star artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR, Batgirl) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice) begin a thousand-year journey into the future…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today! 
“Retailers across the country are reporting that BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) is Valiant’s strongest selling title to date and, even with a print run of 70,000, many stores have already sold out,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Robert Vendtti, Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite have masterfully orchestrated a comic book epic that is not only packed with action, drama and a cast of Valiant’s heaviest hitters, but that is also vitally important to the future of our biggest characters. BOOK OF DEATH truly is a roadmap to the next decade of the Valiant Universe and it’s only appropriate that it has already incited this unprecedented level of response from fans and retailers.”
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?
Featuring the last stands of Valiant icons, the first appearances of all-new heroes, and tantalizing clues of future events, BOOK OF DEATH is the gateway to the next decade of the Valiant Universe and beyond!
On August 19th, join the essential comic book epic of 2015 right here as the present and future of the largest independent superhero universe in comics today unleash a blistering new milestone in the BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING – in stores with BOOK OF DEATH #2 (of 4)!  

Plus: BOOK OF DEATH continues all summer with four visionary tales of present and future ripped directly from the pages of the Book of the Geomancer! Each month, join an all-star cast of creators as they come aboard the year’s monumental comics event to chronicle the ultimate fate of Valiant’s most indelible heroes. From the modern day to the far future, the destinies of Bloodshot, Ninjak, the Harbinger Renegades, X-O Manowar, and more will stand revealed in four essential, standalone chapters at the epicenter of BOOK OF DEATH, beginning this week with BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1:
