From the creative writings of Robert Venditti, the one behind Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps., and the artistry of Renato Guedes of Wolverine and Bloodshot Reborn, Valiant Entertainment is excited for the release of their upcoming one-shot title Eternal Warrior: Awakening #1. A tribute to the original Eternal Warrior #1 comic first published in 1992, Eternal Warrior: Awakening #1 celebrates the character’s 25th anniversary.
Set in a time long before recorded civilization, the story follows an amnesiac warrior turned farmer named “Gilad Anni-Padda” as he tries to remember his past. He eventually discovers his heroic nature, and thus begins a new, bloody-conflict.
From what I’ve seen so far, the comic is lovingly done by Guedes. The artistry, intricate detailing, and befitting coloring all show a great level of care to this comic and its source material. Each page appears to be painstakingly put together and situated into panels when needed. The dialogue and lettering also does well to further demonstrate the dedication that has gone into it.
Eternal Warrior: Awakening #1 will go on sale May 10th of this year, retailing for $3.99. Don’t forget to add the date for this one-shot comic tribute to your calendar.
