Barry Windsor-Smith’s ETERNAL WARRIOR Charges Into VALIANT MASTERS

VM_WARRIOR_VOL_001_CVRValiant is proud to announce the upcoming release of Valiant Masters: Eternal Warrior Vol. 1 – The Fist and Steel HC – a new hardcover collection re-presenting the legendary debut of Valiant’s original immortal hero for the first time anywhere!

Arriving in stores this August, the latest Valiant Masters volume presents never-before-collected works by Eisner Award-winner and comics legend Barry Windsor-Smith (Wolverine: Weapon X), alongside all-time classic stories by Jim Shooter (The Avengers, Secret Wars), Kevin VanHook (Bloodshot, Batman Confidential), John Dixon (Air Hawk and the Flying Doctor) and Yvel Guichet (Aquaman, Stormwatch) – all in a deluxe hardcover format!

For a thousand generations, Gilad Anni-Padda has defended the innocent and dealt out justice as the Eternal Warrior – the undying champion of the Geomancers, the Earth’s chosen Fist and Steel. An unsung veteran of every war ever waged, Gilad’s hard-fought quest from the ancient world to modern day Los Angeles will force him to the forefront of the Valiant Universe – and into a brand new kind of battle alongside the likes of Bloodshot, X-O Manowar, and his own long-lost brother, the one and only Armstrong.

Featuring the Eternal Warrior’s original solo debut by Jim Shooter and John Dixon alongside Barry Windsor-Smith’s classic tales “Time & Space,” “Space & Time” and “The Musketeers!”, this masterfully illustrated epic of the original Valiant Universe collects Eternal Warrior (1992) #1-7 and Archer & Armstrong (1992)/Eternal Warrior (1992) #8.

Relive these centuries-spanning adventures and more in Valiant Masters: Eternal Warrior Vol. 1 – The Fist and Steel HC – available in finer comic shops everywhere this August!
