Greg Pak has been doing some very interesting things with Eternal Warrior since the books re-launch into the Valiant 2.0 U. What's got me stoked about the upcoming issue #5 is that for the first time we are going to be seeing the Valiant 2.0 U's 4001 AD setting. The 4001 AD setting was integral to the Valiant 1.0 U. Magnus and the gang are not part of the Valiant 2.0 U, but will we finally get a glimpse of the Valiant 2.0 Rai? This Vigilant Valiant Vassal sure hopes so!
Read the full press release below:
Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Eternal Warrior #5 – the FIRST ISSUE of ETERNAL EMPEROR, an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and rising star Robert Gill! Start reading here with a perfect jumping-on point on January 22nd as Valiant's immortal champion, Gilad Anni-Padda, builds a bridge from the modern day...to the far-flung future of 4001 A.D.!
Two thousand years from today, the planet has been transformed by science, technology…and war. The centuries have not been kind to the Earth’s own undying warrior, but a battle that could change everything is only just beginning for the Eternal Emperor and the tattered remnant of humanity under his protection. Will this be a new dawn for the age of heroes – or its death knell? And what uncanny confluence of science, myth, and magic has rendered the world – and its own Eternal Warrior – into war-ravaged remnants of their former selves?
Out of the pages of Unity, the Eternal Warrior makes history on January 22nd with a groundbreaking new vision of Valiant's famous future 4001 A.D. timeline, beginning in Eternal Warrior #5 – also featuring stunning variant covers by Dave Bullock (Batman: Black and White) and David Mack (Daredevil, Kabuki)!
