    Like the hiatus the title's going on, this issue of Eternal Warrior is bittersweet. By delivering sentimental, meaningful, resonating scenes all throughout this last issue, Greg Pak and Robert Gill overwhelmingly remind readers why we'll miss this great series so much. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Apr 23, 2014

    Pak's point is the change in Caroline and on the surface it's pure happiness but underneath lies the dread of human nature. All this could get lost in the action and excitement but Pak punctuates this arc perfectly. The Eternal Warrior is fantastic storytelling with meaning and in the end heart. This entire run is a feather in Valiant's cap and a must read for fans of comic books that go beyond expectations. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 23, 2014

    Far removed from the modern-day was the Eternal Warrior, Gilad and this was a story worth telling to show us a future that could be. Eternal Warrior #8 wrapped up Eternal Emperor surprisingly focusing on the emotional values rather than action, which I didn't mind at all. Now I just hope that with this over we can probably get some idea as to the real fallout from where the last story arc ended. It's just something you can't ignore. Read Full Review

    This issue has a bittersweet conclusion, one that deserves mention not only because of its unconventionality but because of its noticeable confliction with the rest of the story, which focuses on triumph and protection. Its sorrowful, and it sets forth a wealth of possible routes for future issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Apr 20, 2014

    Unfortunately, the stories that I am looking for from Eternal Warrior, and was thoroughly enjoying in Harbinger are either going away or currently non-existent. For the first time I am feeling a little bit letdown from the publisher that I've been enjoying so much over the past few years, and afraid for my future relationship with it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Apr 23, 2014

    There are some great hints at a revelation at the end of this book, and it will be interesting to see where those would go. This feels decisive, but far too abrupt. And I'm not sure that I personally care to continue the journey. It was fun while it lasted, Eternal Warrior, but this is where I check out. Read Full Review

    Here's to hoping that leads to some more dramatic story-telling than what we have in "Eternal Warrior #8." Read Full Review
