Review by Scott Keys
If you’ve been following the Valiant Entertainment relaunch, then you’ve been looking forward to the Eternal Warrior relaunch as well. I will warn you, however, that this is one gory book. Not for the faint of heart or those with weak stomachs. Got it? Good! Now to the good stuff.
Gilad, the Eternal Warrior has showed up recently in the pages of X-O Manowar, and Greg Pak starts this issue off with a flashback to one of Gilad’s earliest battles. Pak’s writing this issue is great! In this single issue, we learn of Gilad’s children, their sibling rivalry, and the repercussions of that rivalry, not to mention how much of a BAMF Gilad is! Speaking of BAMF, this issue truly pops with the stunning art of Trevor Hairsine. As I said earlier, not for the faint of heart, but Hairsine does it so well! His detailed line work and action-filled pages keep the reader riveted to Pak’s story.
Eternal Warrior #1 is the perfect opportunity to jump into the new Valiant universe, you know, just in case you haven’t been reading EVERYTHING they put out already (like I do). Pak gives you just enough backstory and action to make you want to come back for more. This is the perfect #1 issue!
Eternal Warrior #1 is available now at your local comic shop or digitally.
