Valiant Unveils Complete Covers for WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – Featuring David Lafuente, Raúl Allén, Cary Nord, Marcos Martin, and More!

Valiant is proud to debut the complete covers for WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, Green Lantern) and visionary artist Raúl Allén (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Hawkeye)! Out of the pages of BOOK OF DEATH…Valiant’s immortal master of war steps to the fore on November 18th for a daring new quest unlike anything he’s ever faced before!

For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior has shaped history at the end of his sword. He’s razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth.

But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he’s ever faced. Separated from his earthly environs, can history’s deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and fare more ruinous than anything he’s ever encountered before? Beyond Earth lies eternity…

“[WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR] is a take on immortality that I don’t recall having seen before.” said series writer Robert Venditti. “It’s going to deal much more with immortality as a concept and focus a lot on the cost of being immortal. What does Gilad have to sacrifice in order to do what he does? And, even more importantly, why does he do it? Why does he sacrifice? Why does he fight for us when he could give up if he wanted to… We’ll be spending a lot of time on those kinds of themes, introducing ideas and conflicts that we haven’t ever seen him encounter before, right from page one.”

Featuring covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man, Batgirl), series artist Raúl Allén (NINJAK), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR, Conan), Marcos Martin (Amazing Spider-Man, The Private Eye), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT), the epic odyssey to the far end of eternity and back starts here on November 18th as master storytellers Robert Venditti and Raúl Allén forge an all-new legend for the Earth’s relentless immortal guardian in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
