“Wrath of the Eternal Warrior” Coming In “Archer & Armstrong” #5

Valiant Entertainment has released cover art to “Archer & Armstrong” #5 which kicks off the “Wrath of the Eternal Warrior” story arc in December 2012. I’m absolutely loving the new Valiant and if you’ve been waiting it out, this issue would be a great jumping on point. Of course, the entire universe is only 4 titles right now (“A & A,” “X-O Manowar,” “Harbinger,” “Bloodshot” and “Shadowman” coming this fall) just 2-5 issues deep, so it’s not too hard to catch up! Check out what we have to say on the new Valiant.

“No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than Gilad Anni-Padda, the undying Eternal Warrior. After thousands of years on the battlefield, he has become an unrelenting force of nature, capable of dismantling entire armies with little effort and less conscience. His brother Armstrong, on the other hand, likes to read poetry and drink beer. Maybe that’s why they had such a bad falling out? But now — after years apart — the Eternal Warrior has a mysterious new mission: destroy young Obadiah Archer, Armstrong’s best-est new buddy and teammate in the war against The Sect.

“Armstrong and Gilad just do not see eye-to-eye. They’re brothers, but their similarities end at genetics,” writer Fred Van Lente told USA Today.

“Gilad sees [immortality] as a duty to fight for right, Armstrong sees it as an opportunity to drink as much booze and spend as much time with as many beautiful ladies as he can — so this issue is mostly fists, minimal hugs. We’ll see if they can work things out before the four-issue arc ends.”

This December, the book that Boing Boing calls “fantabulous” slams into second gear – and Gilad’s fist and steel! Jump on board as the Eternal Warrior sets out on a merciless manhunt straight through the heart of the Valiant Universe, beginning in Archer & Armstrong #5 — featuring a standard cover by Patrick Zircher, a Pullbox Exclusive Variant by Doug Braithwaite and interlocking incentive variants by Emanuela Lupacchino!
