It all comes down to this! Ivar and his brothers – Gilad, the Eternal Warrior, and Armstrong – have led a suicide mission to rescue Neela Sethi and time itself. Now, as Oblivi-1 grows in power and threatens to destroy the very universe, they’ll make their last, dire, final move to save history. Will they do it? Well, the arc ain’t called “Saving History” now is it?! New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and rising star Francis Portela (The Flash) team up to tear down the walls of time!

    With issue eight, Ivar, Timewalker continues to be not only one of Valiant's best books, but also one of the best comics I'm reading right now. It's fast-paced fun, with a memorable cast of characters and a story that leaves you wanting more month after month. Read Full Review

    Given the current absence of a Quantum & Woody or Archer & Armstrong from Valiant's lineup, it falls to Ivar to fulfill the publisher's fun quotient, which it thankfully delivers. However, the fun-factor is downplayed in this particular issue in favor of high stakes action which takes a dark turn in the closing pages. As was the case back in issue #4, Van Lente deftly proves that he can emotionally affect readers in manners beyond laughter. Read Full Review

    I love Eternal Warrior and Armstrong, and any embellishment on their past and further stories has been continually compelling. I do however find myself continually wishing for this book to have lower stakes, which would allow more breathing room and time for some character development, as I think that its leads are rich and would benefit from some time together, outside of mortal danger.

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Aug 22, 2015

    Ivar, Timealker #8 reveals itself as the tramedy that it's been all along. It's about loss and fighting back against it through time itself while instilling the sense that love fills the future with possibilities that may seem impossible. Dramatically accelerating to the climax before the fallout and resolution of the arc's conclusion next month, it moves almost too quickly to fully emotionally grab hold of. Read Full Review
