The Computer Warrior is a comic strip in the British anthology Eagle.

The very first four-part story was called 'The Ultimate Warrior' before changing to 'The Computer Warrior' with issue 163.

Bobby Patterson's best friend Martin French has been trapped inside his home computer's 'real-life' facility. To rescue him, Bobby must become the computer warrior. This perilous quest requires Bobby to physically enter his computer and beat The Warlord's ten computer game challenges for real.

After beating all ten games, Bobby becomes The Computer Warrior. But more challenges follow as he faces the creatures from the Nightmare Zone. If he fails these challenges, the Nightmare Zone will consume the world.

The games Bobby competed in were mostly based on real computer games of the time. A new story arc would usually coincide with a competition in Eagle to win a copy of the game (for example, see issue 168).
