Earth's immortal soldier thought he knew pain... And then he entered the depths of his enemy's "LABYRINTH"...
The mysterious figure known only as the Dying One is on a mission to unlock the secrets of the Eternal Warrior's immortality...and the only way he can accomplish it is to kill him over and over again! Trapped at the heart of a miles-long gauntlet of technologically inflicted cruelties and mechanical terrors designed to dissect, examine and analyze, Gilad has finally been cornered...and he's about to realize that if he can't escape, he'll simply have to survive.

    This is an issue with great moments that tie in to each other to make an even better issue. It's a comic that gets you excited to read more of it. To see more of it. I don't know where Venditti and company will go after this story, but it can wait because I just want to finish this story arc. Probably more than I did with the first story arc. Read Full Review

    I cannot praise WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR highly enough. Every aspect of the story, from the writingto the art to the color work, is some of the best comic book work being made today. The tale of Gilad keeps getting better and better. At this point, there is no reason for anyone to not be reading WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR. Read Full Review

    Hulking Reviewer - Kareem Ali Jun 14, 2016

    Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #8 is an intense continuation of the Labyrinth story line tying together elements from Gilad's resurrection process with an intriguing take on a cat and mouse game with Sovereign. The way Sovereign's no-nonsense approach to collecting data on Gilad's repeated deaths is portrayed is perfect in conveying his true goals and raises his stature as a sociopathic kidnapper.Kalam's attempt to give Gilad a message in the midst of this isn't explored other than as failed attempts coming off as either a distraction or a squandered opportunity. However, the conclusion is an exciting development that has me looking forward to next issue even more. Read Full Review

    Valiant have a series on their hands that's just begging for multiple readings, and when it's this good it'd be rude not to oblige. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 16, 2016

    Not only does Venditti put Gilad through the physical wringer, killing him in darn near every way imaginable, but he also showcases the toil Gilad's frequent trips through the afterlife puts on both him and his family. It's a lot to process, visually and emotionally, but Raul Allen and Patricia Martin makes it look easy. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Jun 15, 2016

    The combination of excellent art, great writing and the one thing I want out of the Eternal Warrior, action, made this a great issue. The little things that Venditti has put in this one have me excited for the future of this book, which has already lasted more issues then the previous Eternal Warrior comic. Good stuff this month.

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jun 14, 2016

    Wrath of the Eternal Warrior # 8 is a fun little romp of a comic where we see brutality in the name for science while Gilad is learning about his enemy " and his limits. Venditti certainly plants seeds for multiple fateful confrontations " which makes finding out what is going on that much more urgent and intriguing. Readers who are skimish might not enjoy the violence here and our big bad just is " kind of there, but otherwise, the art was exquisite while the writing was very strong. The book definitely builds up the stakes for the story this issue. Read Full Review

    On my beard scale, I would give this 3.5 out of 5 beards. The writing is good, but what took me out of a few panels were the way some faces lacked detail. The coloring was well done but doesn't stand out for a book that has a grimy tone to it. Read Full Review
