In honor of the launch of Valiant’s latest tentpole ongoing series – WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and newly Valiant-exclusive artist Raul Allen – Valiant Entertainment will be providing select comics retailers across North America with custom-engraved, full-size battle axes in advance of the first issue’s November 18th launch.
Emblazoned with the WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR logo on the blade and standing 27 inches tall, these once-in-a-lifetime, real-world replications of the Eternal Warrior’s signature weapon will be provided free of charge to participating retail stores in the United States and Canada that have enlisted in Valiant’s WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 retailer exclusive program. Other retailers interested in obtaining a custom WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR battle axe can submit a request to Valiant directly via the email@example.com email address.
“WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 is already on track to become one of Valiant’s single biggest releases of the year, and we want to give our retail partners a razor-sharp token of appreciation for making 2015 Valiant Entertainment’s most successful year yet,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “There is a long-term plan in place for the Eternal Warrior, and, as you’ll soon see in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1, the character is about to take his rightful place as one of single most important heroes in the Valiant Universe. What better way to show the world we mean it than with a two-handed implement of destruction in stores nationwide? Whether you’re a dedicated fan or a 7,000-year-old immortal soldier, these distinctive comic collectibles will be the ultimate accent to your local comic shop, bar none.”
From ARMOR HUNTERS to THE VALIANT and, most recently, the most successful independent comic book event of the decade, BOOK OF DEATH, the Eternal Warrior’s never-ending mission in service to the Earth has played a pivotal role in shaping the Valiant Universe. Now, marching out of the blockbuster success of BOOK OF DEATH, Valiant’s immortal master of war begins a brand-new crusade on November 18th in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new ongoing series by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and rising star Raul Allen launching Gilad Anni-Padda into a savage new realm far removed from the world he once knew…
For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior has shaped history at the end of his sword. He’s razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth.
But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he’s ever faced. Separated from his earthly environs, can history’s deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and far more ruinous than anything he’s ever encountered before? Beyond Earth lies eternity…
On November 18th, step out of BOOK OF DEATH and into the farthest reaches of the Valiant Universe when WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 begins a staggering quest to the ends of the existence…and back again! Featuring covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), Raul Allen (NINJAK), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Marcos Martin (The Private Eye), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN), get ready to discover the ultimate soldier like you’ve never seen him before, only in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – in stores November 18th!
