X-O MANOWAR #1 unleashes the Valiant Universe’s most powerful hero in an all-new series this March!
From fan-favorite writer DENNIS “HOPELESS” HALLUM (Star Wars: Darth Vader – Dark Visions) and breakout star artist EMILIO LAISO (Marvel’s Spider-Man: Velocity), a futuristic threat arises to destroy the planet, and the ancient warrior king – Aric of Dacia, a.k.a. X-O Manowar – is the only person with the courage and power to stand against impossible odds! Can Aric evolve into the superhero the world needs today?
“What excites me most about the series is how much world building Valiant is letting us do,” remarked Dennis. “New villains. New allies. New friends and community. We’re planting Aric firmly on the ground so a big crazy comic book garden can grow up around him. There’s a very human story at the heart of this, but make no mistake, we’re filling up the X-O toy box with rad new toys.”
Emilio can’t wait for fans to read the debut issue of the blockbuster series. “In this first issue there’s everything… story, comedy, surprises. I’m sure it’s going to be great reading.”
The epic adventure kicks off in X-O MANOWAR #1 on March 25th, 2020, featuring colors by Ruth Redmond, letters by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and covers by Christian Ward, Jeff Dekal, Rod Reis, Greg Smallwood,and Raúl Allén.
