    Since Valiant began its relaunch, they've been going for the big stories. What is happening in Eternal Warrior may be the biggest story of them all. I get the sense that Greg Pak is sitting back somewhere in his writing space, cracking his knuckles, smiling a knowing smile, and preparing to let loose a serious awesome bomb. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 20, 2013

    What makes this such a thrilling tale is that you see what it means to be loyal, and what it feels like to be truly betrayed. That feeling carries so much influence over a person's actions and for these two that is the difference between duty and quite literally raising hell to find the answer to their call. This issue is centered around the secrets to that call and the end is every indication as to why some truths are best to be hidden. It's one that will change the world of Gilad and Xaran, both finding out that they got more than they bargained for in the end. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Nov 25, 2013

    Now, the reason that this book is better than either of Pak's books over at DC isn't only because of the story, it's also a result of the art. Neither Batman/Superman nor action Comics look astoundingly good, but this? This looks great. Valiant seems to have set a visual style across all of their books, and that's true with Eternal Warrior as well. It looks very similar to other books being put out by Valiant, and this gives the universe a more coherent sense. That being said, the art in this book looks a lot grittier than the art in, say, Harbinger. It's subtle differences in the art style that set this book's art apart, and it is quite good, for the most part. Occasionally, characters will look inconsistent, but everything else looks and reads great. This is another excellent title in Valiant's already stellar line up of comics. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Nov 19, 2013

    Three issues in and Eternal Warrior is quickly becoming a must-read in my comic book pile and it only seems to be getting better. This is a rich story centered around some not-so-simple concepts. This shouldn't scare readers off because Pak and Hairsine make it easily digestible without dumbing down the narrative. Harsine's action scenes take a short respite here but the art is none-the-less great work. Pak delivers the goods and by the end I guarantee you'll be chomping at the bit for the next issue.

    Herotaku - Jamal Melancon Nov 20, 2013

    The verdict is that this issue might just determine whether you'll keep picking this book up or not, but I highly recommend that you do. Eternal Warrior #3 clarifies its mythology, keeps delivering highly intimate moments, and takes some pretty big strides in the plot department, one of which may be a bit risky. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 20, 2013

    While it's not as action-packed or as exciting as the other issues, Pak dedicates the vast majority of this one to answering numerous questions we've had and even creating a few new ones. The writer's creativity is on overdrive as he continues to grow the fantasy world around Gilad while never really neglecting character development, either. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where this all goes. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Nov 19, 2013

    This offering by Pak and Hairsine seeds something interesting, but fails to deliver where it really counts. Diego Bernard really knocks his art pages out of the water, and steals the entire issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Nov 20, 2013

    I guess I just want more out of Eternal Warrior, which already promises some very interesting concepts. It's not that I don't think it will deliver, which is why I'm going to stick with it, but at the moment, it's not presenting anything that I think could be called original or indeed, eternal.
