Valiant did spend plenty of time yesterday discussing properties besides Bloodshot. They started with a plug for the conclusion of Book of Death arriving at the end of the month. They promised that it would have major reverberations throughout the Valiant Universe. While this may sound like the typical boilerplate Event language, Valiant’s track record backs up previous claims. Harbinger Wars, Armor Hunters & The Valiant all sparked future stories in ways that never felt gimmicky. They did shift the status quo. So fans were told to keep an eye on The Eternal Warrior, who just happens to have a new series launching soon. Continue reading NYCC: Valiant Book of Death and Beyond Panel→

Our initial journey into the year 4001AD has not been overly sunny. Three issues ago, when we first met the future Gilad, he seemed settled enough, advising a village on matters of agriculture. Soon, however, tragedy hit, leaving Gilad with a difficult decision. All the surviving villagers were poisoned from a radioactive bomb. He had promised to return, bring them aid, yet, deep inside he knew their chances were too poor. So, taking his beloved granddaughter Caroline with him, he sets off for greener pastures.
Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel #1 is an intriguing story that might not have the right creative team to take it all the way in spite of their impressive credentials. The story takes place far in the past in war torn ancient Europe where the Eternal Warrior is called upon to save what appears to be a just born messiah. While all the pieces are here something just doesn’t add up about it. Peter Milligan is a great writer that has done some profound work on Shade: The Changing Man & X-Force/Static but I got to say the guys seems to be in a rut right now. He’s produced a lot of work in 2014 and I wouldn’t call any of it bad per say but more like lifeless and stagnant. Something is missing from him and even though I can’t really put my finger on it (because I suck at reviewing you see) I can certainly feel it when I’m reading this along with most of his other work from this year. Artist Cary Nord is talented for sure, he’s done great work in the past and he has some great work here but other parts just seems sloppy. There are some good splash pages and such but far out views of faces or some of the quieter moments fall pretty flat. Eternal Warrior is just a middle of the road comic. Maybe I don’t get it but from where I’m sitting it doesn’t impress and it doesn’t necessarily do anything all that bad either, it’s just a comic. I don’t know about you but I don’t think that’s enough.
