    It's a heck of a lot of fun (in a brutal, violent way), and it includes a maze! Read Full Review

    Venditti and company continue to push the Eternal Warrior through his own personal odyssey in their own visually impressive way. There is no good reason for Valiant fans or fans of action comics to pass on Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #9. Read Full Review

    When it comes to the dialogue, there are some hokey moments that feel at odds with the tone of the comic; almost as if Venditti has taken inspiration from the oldest of old school action movies (theExpendableslevel of cheese) in a couple of scenes. It' not enough to take away my enjoyment at all, but it's a little odd all the same. That said, this is still one of the best series on the shelf today, and you owe it to yourself to give it a read.

    We never know what's going to happen until next issue, but with some strong writing and a lot of breadcrumbs we can get a glimpse. This issue sets the stage for a very interesting tenth issue which may or may not wrap the arc. Whatever happens though, Venditti will likely continue showcasing why the Eternal Warrior is one of Valiant's most beloved characters. Read Full Review

    It's a good book and I'm enjoying this take on the Eternal Warrior. I'm willing to give Venditti a chance to grow into the book. It's just we seem to be taking forever to get from point a to point b. I recommend reading the book but wait for the trade. Read Full Review

    Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #9 is a disappointing issue that provides no answers or story progression as it pertains to Gilad, Sovereign or Kalam. Instead it only covers Gilad's trek through the Labyrinth on the way to Sovereign so the conclusion of this issue feels just like the beginning. There is one bright spot with Kalam's decision to attempt to journey to the land of the living following in Gilad's footsteps but it's way too brief and gives no insight into his thinking. Hopefully next issue adds more depth to this story arc because this issue is largely forgettable. Read Full Review
