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 faced before. 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?
Beyond Earth lies eternity… This November, New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and visionary artist Raúl Allén (NINJAK, Hawkeye) forge a new legend for Valiant’s master of war with an all-new ongoing series in…WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1![/quote]
[quote]I don’t think the ending with Master Darque would have been anticipated, nor do I think that fans actually thought they’d see Gilad actually die – and yes, he’s actually dead. He’s not getting up, and he’s not walking around. And this is something that springboards us into what we’ll be doing in Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #1.
But all along the way, I think we’ve embedded a fair number of teases about what’s coming in the future not just in our series but in the tie-ins as well that will eventually come to fruition.
But yeah, there’s a lot still in there waiting for readers to discover long after the series is over.[/quote]

Description: Torn from the world he once knew, Gilad’s bone-breaking journey back to Earth and the people he was sworn to protect takes a brutal turn! Putting all he holds dear on the line to save our world’s future, the Eternal Warrior prepares to confront the most nefarious adversary of all – but the cost of victory may be too steep.
Even Hell has met its match… in the unrelenting fury of the Eternal Warrior!
In the wake of BOOK OF DEATH…the Earth’s immortal champion is dead…but his battle is far from over. Cast out of our world and into a fearsome afterlife of pain and punishment, Gilad is determined to return to our world and resume his duty… But can even history’s most formidable master of war forge ahead in an unearthly domain built to break the human spirit? Now, on the cusp of freedom, the Eternal Warrior rises to fight an enemy with a grudge as old as himself…only to the find that the price of victory might just be everything and everyone he has ever loved…
The year’s heart-shattering new ongoing series steps out of Hell…and into the battle for life itself as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and visionary artist Raul Allen (NINJAK) force the Eternal Warrior into the next brutal level of rebirth in a world beyond our own!
Le guerrier éternel est mort. Ne soyez pas choqué, ça lui arrive très souvent.
Dans le deuxième arc de la série Wrath of the Eternal Warrior, le scénariste Robert Venditti et le dessinateur Raul Allen ressuscitent Gilad Anni-Padda en un endroit singulier, à des lieux de là où il sombra (Book of Death), un Labyrinthe moderne, conçu spécifiquement pour « saper ses moindres forces, s’attaquer à toutes ses faiblesses et lui prodiguer une mort violente à chaque virage ».
Qui a pu concevoir un tel piège à l’intention de l’immortel ? Il s’agit en fait d’un vieux vilain de l’univers Valiant, l’Ennemi Immortel que réactualise ici le scénariste Robert Venditti sous le titre The Dying One. Signe distinctif : son hétérochromie.
Le lecteur découvrira ce Mourant avant le début des évènements du Labyrinth et sous le crayon de Juan Jose Ryp lors d’un prologue en deux chapitres que publiera Valiant au sein des 5ème et 6ème numéros de la série.
Voici les premières planches de Ryp, suivies des couvertures de Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #7 par Pepe Laraz et Raul Allen :
