    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Dec 3, 2014

    Eternal Warrior, Days of Steel #2 should be enough to make many readers go back and try to find every story of Gilad's previous mini-series and pretty much anything he's every been in. Milligan makes Gilad Anna-Padda an even more interesting character than almost anything I have read and combined with Nord's art makes me wish this was more than a three issue mini-series. Eternal Warrior, Days of Steel #2 is another winning Valiant title and one comic book fans should put on top of their reading stack immediately. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Dec 5, 2014

    If there's any title that should crack your pull list this week, it's this one. Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel is shaping up to be one of the better miniseries of the year. Read Full Review

    I have to say after reading issue one, I wasn't looking forward to this issue, but after witnessing the climax, it's excellent story, and first class art, I can not wait to have issue three in my hands. If you were on the fence as to whether to buy this new series, don't hesitate. Do yourself a favor buy this great comic. Welcome back Gilad, you've been missed. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Dec 2, 2014

    Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel takes a large and, more importantly, interesting leap forward with this second issue. Gilad is racked with self-doubt, yes, but both he and the story keep moving and turning in unexpected ways. Like the first issue, we end with a cliffhanger that should hardly have you concerned as to its resolution, but the promise of an underdog story paired with the internal strife of an axe-happy warrior is one that is worth your time.

    Comic Crusaders - Matt Deery Dec 3, 2014

    Eternal Warrior Days of Steel is another great entry into the Valiant mythos, adding more depth to one of its main heroes and exploring a side of him that has not been seen previously and also and perhaps more importantly humanising him. Whilst my issues with the amount of issues that this story has been given I am really interested to see where this story goes and what the outcome will be and how this will effect GIlad.

    Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel #2 makes the original premise even more intriguing by introducing twins with the same mark and completely different personalities but doesn't delve into either one as deeply as I would have liked to see. It's not that they become caricatures but a deeper examination of how a child could be chosen and what makes either one so special isn't done, and some of the potential entertainment there is lost. It was interesting to see the Geomancer even wondering about the situation because it makes me curious about how these revelations work for him, bringing back to mind Gilad's issues with his missions over these millennia. So I do wonder how things will unfold next issue as Gilad has to face the original choice he made. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 3, 2014

    Overall this issue is okay. Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel #3 will have to make up for this in a big way when the previous two stories ahead of this had more compelling stories to them. There needs to be something we can take away from this when it ends and that needs to be something which makes this stories memorable to some extent because right now you really could move on from it and not miss much.

    Comic Book Herald - Bill Zeiders Dec 4, 2014

    Whatever the case may be, this is still a pretty good comic, and the third installment may improve the way I feel about this one. The story does a good job of placing doubt in both the mind of Gilad and in the mind of the reader. It's hard to say if everything is going to work out in the end for the hero, and at the very least, that keeps the tale interesting. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Dec 6, 2014

    In the end, Eternal Warrior " Days of Steel #2 has effectively killed any enthusiasm I felt for this miniseries. The story no longer feels exciting, and there isn't a single character that doesn't feel bland. Take into account the good but somewhat deteriorating artwork and you have a book that doesn't warrant your attention, not to mention one of the worst that the new Valiant universe has seen so far.
