Listen: I kind of love The Dying One. I mean, of course I would, right? He's a supervillain who dedicated years - decades, even! - to building a massive underground labyrinth full of deathtraps that are designed explicitly for killing a man who literally cannot die. That's the kind of dedication I love in my antagonists.

But then he had to go and ruin it. In next week's issue, as the Dying One finally comes face to face with the Eternal Warrior for bargaining and a fight to the death, he went and opened his big mouth and committed the ultimate sin: He talked smack about Ninjak. Obviously this cannot stand. Check out a preview (including this heinous act) and the start of Gilad's biggest throwdown yet below!

 

 

My man is lucky he picked Eternal Warrior instead of Ninjak, or else he'd be dealing with robot shuriken instead of just a big ol' axe.

Pain and suffering await at the “LABYRINTH’”s end!

Against all odds, the Eternal Warrior has fought his way to the Labyrinth’s brutal and mysterious center. But his suffering is far from over! Standing between the Earth’s immortal master of war and freedom stands the figure only known as the Dying One…and the masterstroke in his centuries-long plan to unlock the secret of the Eternal Warrior’s immortality! Battered but not beaten, can Gilad Anni-Padda rise once more to fell his greatest foe…or will the madness of the “LABYRINTH” break his mind as well as his body?

New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) and visionary artist Raúl Allén (NINJAK) bring their blood-curdling epic to a boil as “LABYRINTH” reaches its unforgettable end – and determines the final fate of Valiant’s greatest warrior!
