In an era where comic book characters talk, a lot, X-O Manowar is about action. Sometimes it’s brutal, bloody and not necessarily the smartest course of action, but comic book fans can appreciate that.

Born into battle and raised under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia is a beloved figure among his men and a leader of the Visigoth people. But when he’s taken prisoner after a brutal encounter with an alien strike force, he must capture the X-O Manowar armor – the most powerful weapon in the universe – if he’s to save his family and return to his people.  But when he arrives he finds 1,600 years have passed and the most primitive man on Earth – a man out of time – now wields a weapon capable of incalculable destruction.

Written by Robert Venditti (The Surrogates, The Homeland Directive) X-O Manowar is the re-launch of Valiant Universe. Robert said “We’re definitely staying true to the character’s original concept, but we’ll be building on that foundation and taking the series in plenty of new directions as well. This is a first issue in every sense of the term, though, so readers don’t need to come to the book with any pre-existing knowledge of the character.”

The pages look incredible and with the powerful storytelling Robert Venditti and Cary Nord (Conan) this is going to be an epic.
