Synopsis:
From New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (Bloodshot Reborn, Green Arrow) and Matt Kindt (Ninjak, MIND MGMT), and Eisner award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) comes an epic ten millennia in the making!
The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers — those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…The Valiant.

This’ll be a short review because unfortunately I chose to shelf this graphic novel as “did not finish” pretty quickly.

Luckily this wasn’t one of the many I’ve purchased, this came to me in an email from [diamond bookhelf] as a thank for you subscribing to their mailing list that they invited me too after having reviewed so many of their books on NetGalley.

Hell yeah I love graphic novels.

I hadn’t heard anything about this series before but who doesn’t like reading about superheroes?

If you’ve read any of my previous graphic novel reviews then you know I usually pick them up because of their art style and that was a big drawback for me with this graphic novel. The art wasn’t terrible it just didn’t excite me or make me wanna keep reading.

I did though for a few pages though because y’know, gotta make sure the story wouldn’t grab me but alas it didn’t.

This was very much a “not for me” graphic novel.

  1. Yeah, this doesn’t seem like something I’d be super into either. I think it’s awesome that you tried anyway, though.

  2. I was offered a free copy of this as well but the cover just looked really unappealing so… I’ll admit I 100% judged this by the cover and didn’t try it tbh.

    1. Right! I’ve spoke to someone who’s read it and they’ve said it’s good but it does take a good portion for them to set everything up so he can understand why I wasn’t interested
