New York, NY (December 16th, 2019) –  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?

Feast your eyes on a first-look at the stellar artwork!

"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."
