August 10th, 2020 – Valiant’s flagship hero returns this November in X-O MANOWAR #2!
Aric of Dacia, aka X-O MANOWAR, is back and heading in a bold new direction with Harvey Award-winner DENNIS “HOPELESS” HALLUM (Star Wars: Darth Vader – Dark Visions) and astonishing artist EMILIO LAISO (Marvel’s Spider-Man: Velocity). The first issue earned a spot in the top 100 best-selling comics when it debuted. Now, the action-packed second issue is set to arrive in comic shops on November 25th, 2020, with covers by Eisner Award-winning artist CHRISTIAN WARD (Invisible Kingdom), NETHO DIAZ (G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero), and a 1:25 variant by DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON (Wonder Woman: Dead Earth).
“X-O Manowar has always been a nuclear missile with the mind of a noble warrior,” remarked Dennis. “He’s unstoppable in combat. Need to defeat an alien warlord? Repel an intergalactic invasion or end a war? Aric’s your guy. But this time, X-O Manowar is acting locally. What happens when a nuclear missile moves in down the street? How does a superweapon playing superhero save the neighborhood? How does he change the world?”
X-O MANOWAR #1 received critical acclaim, with CBR calling it “another win for Valiant.”“…classic superhero fun…” – Shamus Clancy, Screen Rant“…nothing short of beautiful…” – Adam Barnhardt, ComicBook.com“…a stellar debut issue…” – Mike Fugere, CBR“…an engaging reboot with a solid creative team behind it…” – Christa Harader, Multiversity Comics“…a well-written start for a new reader interested in Aric’s adventures.” – Gabriel Hernandez, Monkeys Fighting Robots“…an action-packed beauty.” – Joshua Rathbun, Outright Geekery“…one of the best things from Valiant I’ve read in the last year.” – Alex K. Cossa, Graphic Policy
