Things have gotten a little complicated for Gilad Anni-Padda.  After his untimely demise at the end of Book of Death, he's found himself in Hell, fighting against all manner of terrors to break free.  Next he'll enter the ultimate deathtrap in the next storyline entitled “Labyrinth.”  The fun begins in March as the two-part “Prelude to Labyrinth” kicks off in Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #5, written by Robert Venditti and illustrated by Juan Jose Ryp.  The escape goes into full force in May with issue #7 as artist Raul Allen returns to the book.

Up until recently, Gilad was an immortal warrior, serving the Earth for over six millennia.  He's faced zealots and madmen, emperors and tyrants.  Nothing has prepared him for what he's about to endure.  He's about to enter 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.  Who could have designed such as monument of terror?  And how many centuries have they plotted against the Eternal Warrior?  If Gilad can survive the gauntlet of cutting-edge technology and sharpened steel, he'll find out why the merciless figure known only as The Dying Man has singled him out for this ordeal.

“With Labyrinth, Robert Venditti is seizing upon one of the great, untapped characters of the original Valiant Universe and bringing them roaring into the modern day,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Soon, the entire Valiant Universe is going to meet this dark inversion of history’s greatest warrior – a figure that has thrived on horror, grief, and injustice while Gilad upheld duty, honor, and righteousness throughout the ages. It’s brutal, it’s terrifying, and it’s going to cast one of Valiant’s most important heroes into an all-new light.”

Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #5 is set for release in March 2016.
