    It's a slow-moving story for sure, but it reads incredibly fast. If you can be patient with it, you'll see just how tight the narrative is. How detailed and resourceful the art is. You'll see just how great it is to read a superhero story that isn't lost to the "real world" or the film medium. Wrath of the Eternal Warrior is exactly what you should want from the superhero genre. I'm not saying all superhero stories should be exactly like this, but a lot of them doing similar things should certainly strive to be a bit more like Wrath of the Eternal Warrior. Read Full Review

    After their success in 2015, Valiant are hitting the ground running in 2016, and this gorgeous piece of work sees the bar that's been set, and vaults over it with ease. If my previous evangelising hasn't convinced you that this series should find its way onto your 'must pull' list, then I really don't know what else I can do, but this here could've been just a holding issue, and instead pulls off an exciting, intricately detailed torture-and-escape sequence that'll get your blood a-pumping. Acquire, immediately. Read Full Review

    While I felt the first issue was a good launch to the title, the second one lagged a bit. Not here. This was a really good issue in my book. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jan 20, 2016

    The art is stunning, gripping and tells the story. The writing is stop notch. We get some really vile torture while also having some amazing characterization. Venditti does an amazing job really show Gilad's mission statement while growing him as a creator. This was an amazing issue as it sets up the finale. Read Full Review

    Artists Raul Allen (Hawkeye) and Patricia Martin create some stunning and demonic visuals here. The fight scenes are bloody and violent, and the use of silhouettes adds something more to the overall feel of the book. Gilads journey is a well paced, visually entertaining romp through hell and, hopefully, back. With the way this issue ends, #4 cant come soon enough. Im ready for more axe-wielding heroics from Valiants immortal hero. Read Full Review

    This may not have been my favorite issue of this title so far, but it still shows a lot of promise not only for the rest of this arc, but also the possibilities that lie ahead further down the line for this title. If his work on X-O Manowar is any indication, Robert Venditti likely has a huge plan for this run that he's already been hinting at and we won't even realize it until we're 4 or 5 arcs in, and I absolutely cannot wait to get to that point and beyond!

    Wrath of the Eternal Warrior continues to be an exciting read, with this third issue only building upon the emotionally driven script. We also get great symbolism, and wonderful art designs with the final product easily gaining a recommendation. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 21, 2016

    When compared to the first few issues, the latest from Robert Venditti and Ral Alln reads as decidedly lighter. However, this is one example where sheer execution trumps an overall lack of substance, as this action heavy piece still manages to be every bit as engrossing as what's come before. Read Full Review

    As he's still hobbiting his face off, I'm going lower. I have faith that next issue, he'll be through the damn first chapter, and on to the real story. Read Full Review

    Hulking Reviewer - Kareem Ali Jan 19, 2016

    Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #3 is a slightly disappointing issue due to the fact it doesn't address the more intriguing aspects of the current story arc and mostly focuses on Gilad cutting through more generic demons. Yes it's made clearer how strenuous it is for him to come back to life but it becomes redundant because there is no new significant character development. I can thoroughly enjoy action, however, Gilad is a more fascinating character when he's treated as more than just a simple axe. So hopefully next issue can reflect that sentiment. Read Full Review

    All in all, this book starts off strong, but it could use some work sticking the landing by the end. Read Full Review
