Join the adventures of Valiant’s flagship hero here with 64-pages of armor-busting action on the front lines of the Valiant Universe in X-O Manowar’s first-ever annual!
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. Plus: Col. Jamie Capshaw must singlehandedly defend G.A.T.E from a menace nobody expected… and the Armorines begin an all-new mission at the heart of X-O Manowar’s world!
The life and times of the unstoppable X-O Manowar loom large as series mastermind Robert Venditti leads an all-star cast of Valiant’s greatest talents – including Amy Chu (Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death), Adam Gorham (DEAD DROP), Jody Houser (FAITH), Mike McKone (Teen Titans), Pere Perez (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG), and more – into a 64-page epic too gargantuan for a single issue!
