Well, now Valiant is giving away full-blown axes with their comics, to comic stores.



Valiant will be sending customised battle axes to comic stores to promote the launch of Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior #1 by Robert Venditti and newly exclusive artist Raul Allen in advance of the first issue's November 18th launch.

Emblazoned with the WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR logo on the blade and standing 27 inches tall, these once-in-a-lifetime, real-world replications of the Eternal Warrior's signature weapon will be provided free of charge to participating retail stores in the United States and Canada that have enlisted in Valiant's WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 retailer exclusive program.

They promise no one has cut themselves on one. Yet…

Here's a look at the comic that everyone is chopping each other in twain to get at…

From ARMOR HUNTERS to THE VALIANT and, most recently, the most successful independent comic book event of the decade, BOOK OF DEATH, the Eternal Warrior's never-ending mission in service to the Earth has played a pivotal role in shaping the Valiant Universe. Now, marching out of the blockbuster success of BOOK OF DEATH, Valiant's immortal master of war begins a brand-new crusade on November 18th in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of an all-new ongoing series by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and rising star Raul Allenlaunching Gilad Anni-Padda into a savage new realm far removed from the world he once knew…

For five millennia, the Eternal Warrior has shaped history at the end of his sword. He's razed empires, toppled civilizations, and broken armies as an immortal soldier in service to the Earth.

But now, the Eternal Warrior has been torn from the world he once protected and finds himself stranded in a hostile alien landscape unlike any he's ever faced. Separated from his earthly environs, can history's deadliest soldier survive a realm far older, far deadlier, and far more ruinous than anything he's ever encountered before? Beyond Earth lies eternity…

On November 18th, step out of BOOK OF DEATH and into the farthest reaches of the Valiant Universe when WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 begins a staggering quest to the ends of the existence…and back again! Featuring covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), Raul Allen(NINJAK), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Marcos Martin (The Private Eye), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN), get ready to discover the ultimate soldier like you've never seen him before, only in WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #1 – in storesNovember 18th!
