    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Oct 9, 2013

    In the event you missed out on issue #1, an informative intro makes this a totally adequate jumping on point. However, I still strongly recommend buying the first issue just so you can see how everything actually plays out for yourself. Plus, it's awesome, and you like awesome stuff, right? Read Full Review

    Herotaku - Jamal Melancon Oct 8, 2013

    This is a great series in the making here, trust me. The creators obviously know what they're doing. Every page and panel serves some purpose, and it's obvious that a lot of time was put in to the issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Oct 6, 2013

    Still one of the most interesting and dynamic characters ever to emerge from the Valiant U, Gilad Anni-Padda's adventures in Eternal Warrior are a must read. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 9, 2013

    Trevor Hairsine is joined by Clayton Crain this time around, but the division of art duties works. Typically, dividing a single issue between two such drastically different artists is a recipe for disaster. This issue avoids that pitfall by having each artist handle a different period in time. The flashbacks are Crain territory, and they look spectacular. The main story is all Hairsine, who is doing the best work of his career in this book. The colors, provided by Brian Reber, are as solid as ever. Eternal Warrior is complete package, a full course of awesomeness. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Oct 16, 2013

    This issue is all about trying to restore that balance which puts the world at risk. Father and daughter now reunited because they were born to fight, they belong in the war zone, killing is almost all they know and it makes them feel alive. Though it comes with a twist Greg Pak has thrown that makes this a must book to all. The Eternal Warrior is going to take the fight to Earth herself. It's one thing to break all the rules, and challenge death itself, but Earth? You sure as hell want to pick up this book and follow what comes next to see how this story plays out. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Oct 9, 2013

    Whether I should or not, I'm holding this title to a high bar because of the creative team and publisher, and for the most part, Eternal Warrior has reached it. So long as this one steers clear of well-worn tropes, I'll be sticking around to see it play through to the end. Read Full Review

    The Warrior's daughter might be unhinged, but her father is crazy, and seeing how Pak resolves this is going to be fun. Read Full Review

    The Eternal Warrior is well drawn, written, and paced. There is no reason why this finely crafted comic should not be on the radar of you and the people you care about. Check this out so it does not get canceled and I can keep reading it! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 14, 2013

    "Eternal Warrior" #2 is a book that feels a little out of sorts, but not to the point where it's a deal-killer. Overall, the new Valiant's been doing a good job, so I'm willing to give it a couple more installments to hopefully shake the Eternal Eeyore version of the character. Most likely the second storyline will have Gilad back to his old self, but for now, this doesn't feel that inviting. Read Full Review
