Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel #1

660432_87ab492387cd7c0e05e6860a5d7d0ca916c5106aby Peter Milligan & Cary Nord

Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel #1 is an intriguing story that might not have the right creative team to take it all the way in spite of their impressive credentials. The story takes place far in the past in war torn ancient Europe where the Eternal Warrior is called upon to save what appears to be a just born messiah. While all the pieces are here something just doesn’t add up about it. Peter Milligan is a great writer that has done some profound work on Shade: The Changing Man & X-Force/Static but I got to say the guys seems to be in a rut right now. He’s produced a lot of work in 2014 and I wouldn’t call any of it bad per say but  more like lifeless and stagnant. Something is missing from him and even though I can’t really put my finger on it (because I suck at reviewing you see) I can certainly feel it when I’m reading this along with most of his other work from this year. Artist Cary Nord is talented for sure, he’s done great work in the past and he has some great work here but other parts just seems sloppy. There are some good splash pages and such but far out views of faces or some of the quieter moments fall pretty flat. Eternal Warrior is just a middle of the road comic. Maybe I don’t get it but from where I’m sitting it doesn’t impress and it doesn’t necessarily do anything all that bad either, it’s just a comic. I don’t know about you but I don’t think that’s enough.
