Media Release — Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #7 – the FIRST ISSUE of “LABYRINTH”, an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and Valiant-exclusive artist and visionary storyteller Raul Allen (Hawkeye)! On May 18th, the most punishing Eternal Warrior story in history starts here! Gilad Anni-Padda has escaped the depths of Hell…but has he stumbled into a place far worse? Imprisoned in the most impenetrable deathtrap ever conceived, the Eternal Warrior’s escape rests in a tour of agony, anguish, and affliction designed to break his body, torment his mind…and reveal, at long last, the time-lost secret of his immortality!
Across six millennia, Gilad Anni-Padda – an immortal warrior sworn to forever serve the Earth – has felled zealots and madmen, emperors and tyrants in the course of his duty. But nothing he’s faced yet can prepare him to run the “LABYRINTH” – a miles-long maze of horrors specifically designed to undermine his every strength, enhance his every weakness…and to send him screaming into the darkness of death at every turn. But what kind of brilliant-but-twisted psyche could have possibly conceived such a monument to terror…and for how many centuries have they plotted to break the mind and body of history’s most formidable soldier?
The answer lies at the heart of the “LABYRINTH” itself…and as Gilad endures a gauntlet of cutting-edge technology and sharpened steel, he’ll soon discover why the merciless figure known only as The Dying One has singled the Eternal Warrior out for the ultimate deathtrap.
On May 18th, the Eternal Warrior’s place in history and the Valiant Universe will be forever altered when Robert Venditti and Raul Allen enter the “LABYRINTH” – a startling new jumping-on point beginning in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #7! Featuring covers by Raul Allen (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK), Khari Evans (HARBINGER), and Dave Bullock (The Rocketeer at War), the definitive Eternal Warrior epic of 2016 starts right here on May 18th, only in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #7!
