On March 22nd, don’t miss a moment of the action that awaits when Valiant’s biggest new series of the year begins with a cosmic thunderclap in X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1! A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon starts here with part one of “SOLDIER” – a vicious journey of bone and bloodshed launching X-O Manowar onto the battlefield of a herculean alien empire…

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

On March 22nd, take charge as Valiant’s X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 slams into a comic shop near you with covers by Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn), Kenneth Rocafort (Inhumans vs. X-Men), Mico Suayan (Thor), J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), and Monica Palosz (Divinity III: Stalinverse)!

Then, join the superhero epic of 2017 as Valiant brings X-O Manowar raging into your local comic shop with the X-O MANOWAR #1 RELEASE DAY TOUR!
