WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #5 – the FIRST ISSUE of the two-part “PRELUDE TO LABYRINTH” from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and blockbuster artist Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK)! On March 16th, jump on board one of the year’s most acclaimed new series here as the Eternal Warrior takes his first steps out of Hell…and into the crosshairs of one of the greatest villains the Valiant Universe has ever known!
Across six millennia, Gilad Anni-Padda – an immortal warrior sworn to forever serve the Earth – has felled zealots and madmen, emperors and tyrants in the course of his duty. But nothing he’s faced yet can prepare him to run the “LABYRINTH” – a miles-long maze of horrors specifically designed to undermine his every strength, enhance his every weakness…and send him screaming into the darkness of death at every turn. But what kind of brilliant but twisted psyche could have possibly conceived such a monument to terror…and for how many centuries have they plotted to break the mind and body of history’s most formidable soldier?
The answer lies at the heart of the “LABYRINTH” itself…and as Gilad endures a gauntlet of cutting-edge technology and sharpened steel, he’ll soon discover why the merciless figure known only as the Dying One has singled the Eternal Warrior out for the ultimate deathtrap.
