@allstarsuperman: This is a really good thread! Still surprised there aren't anymore comments. I looked through everything you just posted and it encouraged me to order the first trade of this on Amazon. I may buy some of the older stuff as well.

@allstarsuperman: Heh. nice thread man. I was gonna do it myself but found you beat me to it.

Though I might have to do an Archer/Armstrong respect thread.

Do you need help with any scans? I decided to pick up Archer/Armstrong too (lol, I'm gonna be broke at this rate) so I have access to all of his new appearances in Valiant..

@fallschirmjager: Okay I just finished the Wrath of the Eternal Warrior, really really good. Weird though, I am not a fan of either Aram or Archer but the story with the villains is highly entertaining. Also it was cool to see Gilad in another point of view. Like in unity and his book he is an "ultra badass", but in Arams view he is "Douchey McDouche", I LOL'd it was pretty funny. Also is Eternal Warrior featured in volume 3? He is on a cover for it, but I was also told he was only in this story so im not sure.

For scans id like the full opening fight with Aram and Archer, especially the part where Archer says he cant beat Gilad. That part were Gilad drives the car off the building into the next building, and the part were he survives the big explosion from his arm bomb things.

@fallschirmjager: @allstarsuperman: Didn't Gilad fight Aric in X-O's own series? Did ye read that already?

Eternal Warrior #1 is now on sale on comixology. Might get it myself, considering it's the only Valiant series I don't have much issues of.

@maccyd: get it, its good. but honestly I have been enjoying the old run more, but that could be because I can read like 10 issues a day.

@fallschirmjager: thanks, I havent read the issue yet, so i didnt look at them though,

@transformers1024: @fallschirmjager: @maccyd: I just finished Eternal Warriors old series, Its pretty good, I dips a biit after Valiant was bought by Acclaim though. He isnt Wolverine level or even Captain America/Batman level. I would say he is Winter Soldier/Nightwing level.

I cannot say I have much to add to this thread as far as scans, but I am a big fan of Eternal Warrior, probably one of the most underrated characters in comics. To think the first Eternal Warrior comics came out in 1992, yet so few people really know they are out there.

I am patiently awaiting the release of Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel. Only a few more weeks.

@smoking_gun: I got a whole lot more scans on my phone. The rest of his classic series. I'll be getting secret weapons, geomancer, and Solar from the Gilad parts soon as well.
