Evil All Around You: Robert Venditti Talks ‘Book of Death’ [Interview]

BOD_feat

When you think of the revived Valiant Comics, a few standout creators come to mind, and oe of those is certainly Robert Venditti, a writer who has been on board since the company came back to life in 2012.

After taking the reins on last year's Armor Hunters event, Venditti is picking up the baton once again, along with artists Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite, for Book of Death, a four-issue miniseries that explores the fallout from this spring's The Valiant and blasts ahead into an uncertain, dangerous future for the Valiant Universe, with excerpts from the titular book --- which comes from the future ---- playing a big part in each issue.

After getting a sneak peek at the script for issue one, we spent a few minutes on the phone with Venditti to talk about whether his future for the Valiant U is concrete or fluid, the art of writing a comic script, the concept of a villain who can manipulate nature, whether trees can be threatening, and much more.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gameplay Video: Drone You Forget About Me

Rocksteady Studios
Rocksteady Studios

With Batman: Arkham Knight due to arrive in just a few weeks, it's time for the endless promotional assault on your senses to kick into high gear. Some skins and pre-order exclusives were touted earlier this week, but now Rocksteady Studios has returned with a new bit of gameplay showing off both hand-to-hand and vehicular combat.

As the third game in the Arkham trilogy proper (Rocksteady doesn't count Arkham Origins, and neither should you), Arkham Knight appears to be the most ambitious Batman video game yet. Besides the obvious graphical improvements offered by the current crop of consoles, Rocksteady's included a wealth of new features for its open world Gotham, including the ability to get behind the wheel of the Batmobile and shoot the crap out of some tanks. But don't worry Bat-fans, these are just drones. Batman isn't killing anyone; he's just maiming them really, really, really, really badly.
