We’ve been waiting for this guy to show up for a while.
Gilad, the Eternal Warrior, returns in December in Archer & Armstrong #5, the first issue of the second story arc.
Eternal Warrior is one of Valiant’s A-list characters, one of the characters that we have all been waiting to hear about. Looks like we don’t have to wait long.
Valiant has a history, from the classic Valiant comics, of debuting characters in other titles. Shadowman appeared in X-O Manowar #4, Bloodshot first appeared in Rai #0, Ninjak frist appeared in Bloodshot #6, Rai first appeared in Magnus, Robot Fighter #5, and Gilad, the Eternal Warrior, first appeared in Solar, Man of the Atom #10.
Valiant has been continuing this tradition, with Ninjak first appearing in X-O Manowar #5, and now, with Eternal Warrior first appearing in Archer & Armstrong #5.
The obvious question… who’s next? Rai? Dr. Mirage? H.A.R.D.Corps? Psi-Lords?!?
First came Ninjak… Now prepare for the debut of Valiant’s next superstar hero — the undying Eternal Warrior! Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #5 by New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor) — the FIRST ISSUE of “Wrath of the Eternal Warrior” and an all-new jumping on point for the series Comic Book Resources calls “refreshingly unpredictable”!
No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the Eternal Warrior. After thousands of years on the battlefield, he’s a master of strategy and weaponry, an unrelenting force of nature capable of dismantling entire armies with little effort and less conscience. His brother Armstrong, on the other hand, likes to read poetry and drink beer. Maybe that’s why they had such a bad falling out? But now — after years apart — the Eternal Warrior has a new mission: destroy young Obadiah Archer, Armstrong’s best-est new buddy and teammate in the war against The Sect. And, like it or not, Valiant’s history-smashing adventure duo will soon feel the brunt of the Eternal Warrior’s fist and steel.
The manhunt begins on December 12th as two immortal brothers go to war for the life of Obadiah Archer, only in Archer & Armstrong #5 – featuring a cover by superstar artist Patrick Zircher and interlocking incentive variants by Emanuela Lupacchino!
