Valiant Preview: X-O Manowar Annual 2016 #1

This summer, the legendary X-O Manowar flies into his first-ever oversized annual with 64 pages of armor-busting adventures spanning the universe of Valiant’s flagship hero!

Valiant is proud to present your first look inside the X-O MANOWAR ANNUAL 2016 #1! From Aric of Dacia’s days on the outskirts of the Roman Empire to the eve of X-O Manowar’s greatest battle yet amongst the stars, jump on board the series that set the Valiant Universe in motion on May 18th as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, Green Lantern) and Valiant-exclusive sensation Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) lead off a centuries-spanning look at X-O Manowar’s past and present in a giant-sized adventure too epic for a single issue! Then: The life and times of the unstoppable X-O Manowar loom large as a massive cast of rising stars and superstar talents – including Amy Chu (Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death), Adam Gorham (DEAD DROP), Jody Houser (FAITH), Mike McKone (Teen Titans), and more – come together for tales of Valiant’s most powerful hero…and his allies and foes alike!

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

With X-O MANOWAR #50 just over the horizon, 2016 is primed and ready to be X-O Manowar’s most pivotal year yet! But before Aric of Dacia can confront the biggest threat Earth has ever faced, he must first reflect on the past…and the outcome of a bloodstained battle on the frontier of the Roman Empire that continues to be felt to this day! Then: X-O Manowar’s sworn enemy, Commander Trill, readies for the war that is to come…by undergoing a life-threatening trial-by-fire that will test every ounce of his intellect and fury. And then Col. Jamie Capshaw must singlehandedly defend G.A.T.E from a menace nobody expected… just as the Armorines begin an all-new mission at the heart of X-O Manowar’s world!

On May 18th, the legend of Aric of Dacia and the ultra-powerful X-O Manowar armor passes down through the ages as a massive cast of Valiant superstars launch into a 64-page barrage of spectacular action and overwhelming intrigue in the X-O MANOWAR ANNUAL 2016 #1 – featuring covers from Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), Carmen Carnero (The Punisher), Brian Level (The Mantle), and Jeff Dekal (Journey into Mystery)!
