Valiant Unveils First Lettered Look Inside X-O MANOWAR #1 – On Sale March 22nd!

XO2017_001_COVER-A_LAROSAVisionary Creators Matt Kindt & Tomas Giorello Begin An Awe-Inspiring Space Epic in 2017’s Biggest New Series Debut

As revealed at Mashable, Valiant is proud to present the first lettered look inside the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Divinity, Ninjak, Mind MGMT) and a rotating cast of the most formidable visual storytellers in comics today, including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn), Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters, Bloodshot U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (Rai, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn), that together will span the series’ first year in 2017 and beyond!

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon starts here on March 22nd with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

“What do you do that hasn’t been done before? I figured the way to do that would be to just throw him on a completely alien planet with all new cultures,” series writer Matt Kindt told Mashable. “I think what’s fun is [that] the series has Aric’s story arc that he’s going to follow, but then the armor also has its own… The armor is evolving, and it’s growing, and it’s going to have its own arc, too.”

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!

In the wake of “SOLDIER”’s staggering assault in issues #1-3, X-O MANOWAR then continues in 2017 and beyond as a superstar cast of Valiant’s most acclaimed artistic talents chart Aric’s path from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH for a vicious, year-long journey of bone and bloodshed born from the battlefields of a herculean alien empire:

Valiant’s Fred Van Lente & Cary Nord Hold Court for IMMORTAL BROTHERS: THE TALE OF THE GREEN KNIGHT #1 – Coming in April!

IMMORTAL_001_COVER-A_NORDCelebrate 25 Years of Archer & Armstrong, Eternal Warrior and Ivar, Timewalker with a Special 48-Page Quest into Arthurian Legend!

As revealed today at ComicBook.com, Valiant is proud to announce IMMORTAL BROTHERS: THE TALE OF THE GREEN KNIGHT #1 – a 48-page, standalone special reuniting Archer & Armstrong, the Eternal Warrior, and Ivar, Timewalker for a swashbuckling adventure through King Arthur’s court! On April 12th, New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong) returns to the ageless Anni-Padda brothers with Eisner Award-winning artist and Valiant superstar Cary Nord (X-O Manowar) for the first of four oversized issues honoring the most memorable Valiant tales ever told across the summer of 2017! From ancient Mesopotamia to the streets of modern-day New York, Armstrong, Gilad, and Ivar have seen, heard, and fought it all… Now, celebrate the 25th anniversary of Valiant’s most famous band of brothers right here with a marvelously extra-long and lavishly illustrated epic of bravery and brute force in the style of Barry Windsor-Smith’s classic Archer & Armstrong/Eternal Warrior #8!

It’s winter at King Arthur’s court in Camelot! The monstrous Green Knight has appeared before the Round Table with no armor, a gigantic axe, and a challenge. He has come to insist that the weaker knights participate in a friendly “winter’s game” where anyone can strike him once with his axe, but on one condition: That the Green Knight can return the exact blow in one year’s time. King Arthur has agreed to face the mysterious knight himself, but the Round Table’s youthful and most gallant champion, Sir Gilad, takes up the challenge to protect his king. Much to the court’s surprise, the Green Knight doesn’t flinch as his head is struck clean off…only to pick it up himself and warn Gilad that he is fated to receive the same blow before the year is out. Now, Gilad – the Eternal Warrior – must solve the mystery of who the Green Knight is before his hour at the axe comes to pass! But first, he’ll need to find some help…in the form of his own immortal brothers – Armstrong and Ivar – who shall be united once more!

“Aram is super-strong, Ivar is super-smart, and Gilad is super-brutal. That leads to radically different worldviews. So when thrown together, they have completely different approaches to solving problems,” writer Fred Van Lente told ComicBook.com. “Thus, they bicker constantly whenever they’re together—they are constantly trying to one-up each other, and prove their way is right.”

On April 12th, the Valiant Universe’s three immortal adventurers are going down in history when all-star creators Fred Van Lente and Cary Nord bring Archer & Armstrong, the Eternal Warrior, and Ivar, Timewalker together for a centuries-spanning journey into lore and legend! It all starts here with an oversized, 48-page saga of Valiant’s most noble heroes past and present, in IMMORTAL BROTHERS: THE TALE OF THE GREEN KNIGHT #1 – featuring covers by Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (Conan), Valiant-exclusive superstar Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn), acclaimed artist Marc Laming (Ninjak), and rising star J.M. Dragunas!

Look for three more 25th anniversary specials honoring timeless tales of Valiant’s most iconic heroes throughout 2017!

Advance Solicit: X-O MANOWAR #2 – The Biggest New Series of 2017 Battles Ahead in April!

XO2017_002_COVER-A_LAROSAThey asked for war. He’ll give them death!

As revealed at Comic Book Resources, Valiant is proud to present your first look at X-O MANOWAR #2 – the next chapter of Valiant’s hotly anticipated, major new ongoing series debut of 2017! On April 26th, Aric of Dacia’s one-man domination of a battle-scarred alien world continues as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Divinity, Ninjak, Mind MGMT) and Valiant-exclusive rising star Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn) force the unstoppable X-O Manowar onto the front lines of an eons-old extraterrestrial battlefield that will forever shape the future of the Valiant Universe’s greatest hero!

Deep within the far reaches of space, the dogs of war have found Aric of Dacia. Conscripted into an alien army and forced into combat, Aric must enter an alien battlefield unlike any he’s faced before. His only hope for survival is also the source of his greatest rage – the living suit of armor known as X-O Manowar.

On April 26th, “SOLDIER” – the brutal opening story arc – continues as the most important Valiant debut of all time fights onward, only in X-O MANOWAR #2 – featuring covers by Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn), Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn), and Kaare Andrews (Astonishing X-Men)!

But first: Witness history in the making on March 22nd in the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of THE EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Divinity, Ninjak, Mind MGMT) and a rotating cast of powerhouse artists – including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn), Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters, Bloodshot U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (Rai, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn) – that together will span the series’ first year in 2017 and beyond!

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!

Valiant’s Sold-Out Smash-Hit Returns with Sequel in BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE #1 – Coming in April!

BRITANNIA2_001_COVER-A_NORDMaster Storytellers Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp Investigate a Harrowing New Prestige-Format Case for the World’s First Detective

As revealed today at io9, Valiant is proud to announce BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE #1 (of 4) – a brand-new journey into myth and mystery from comics master Peter Milligan (Shade, The Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (Britannia)! On April 26th, Valiant’s critically acclaimed, ten-time sold-out magnum opus returns with an all-new beginning and a startling new case for Antonius Axia, the world’s first detective… One with a haunting connection to the horrors of Rome’s arena and the very gods themselves…

Fifty thousand Romans stand on their feet, watching from the rafters of the coliseum with captured breath as Achillia, a gladiator unlike any that Rome has seen before, faces incredible odds – one lone warrior against five of Rome’s greatest. Such is the tradition, when a female gladiator enters the fray. When the carnage is complete, the coliseum roars its approval as Achillia stands victorious. Now, only one match away from winning her freedom, she has begun to gain renown. The women of Rome, suppressed by their husbands and fathers, have noticed. The men of Rome, husbands and fathers to a growing horde of women entertaining ideas of independence, have noticed as well.

On the other side of Rome, a strange mystery swirls through the Palatine Hill. In the dead of night, down winding alleys, Rome’s elite swear that they see visions of a blood-soaked Apollo walking the city…visions that are driving them mad. Even more are becoming sick with weird fever god-dreams. Panic ensues in the city. The Chief Vestal, Rubria, is arrested by Emperor Nero and threatened with crucifixion unless the deadly curse that’s fallen on Rome is lifted. She asks Antonius Axia, hero of Britannia and Rome’s only detective, for help. She offers only one clue…the gladiator Achillia.

“We couldn’t be prouder of the work that Peter and Juan have done in building the captivating and mysterious world of Britannia,” Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons told io9. “Having the marketplace respond to a new character and a new concept with such enthusiasm has been invigorating and emboldened the entire team to take the next series into even more challenging territory. Antonius Axia is a vital and important new addition to the Valiant line, and his next adventure will be an investigation into an unthinkable mystery plaguing the dark heart of Rome, its gods, and its citizens.”

On April 26th, the gods stalk the world of men when the smash-hit, repeatedly sold-out series that pushed the boundaries of the Valiant Universe farther than ever before returns with a must-read new volume presented in the deluxe VALIANT PRESTIGE format in BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Eisner Award winner Cary Nord (X-O Manowar, Conan), Eisner Award nominee David Mack (Daredevil), rising star Adam Gorham (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe), and Eisner Award winner Dave Johnson (100 Bullets)!

Valiant Unveils Massive X-O MANOWAR #1 Gatefold Insert in December 2016 PREVIEWS – In Stores Tomorrow!

XO2017_INSERT_001Valiant’s most important first issue of all time is slamming into shelves early with a one-of-a-kind sneak peek in Diamond Comics Distributors’ December 2016 PREVIEWS catalog – available in comic shops everywhere tomorrow!

Before the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1 arrives in stores on March 22nd, experience the brutal journey that awaits Valiant’s most enduring icon in the December 2016 PREVIEWS catalog – featuring a stunning, six-page, 24″ x 11.5” gatefold insert, bound directly into Valiant Entertainment’s catalog listings! Find out everything you need to know about the FIRST ISSUE of THE EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DivinityNinjak, Mind MGMT) and a rotating cast of powerhouse artists – including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn), Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters, Bloodshot U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (Rai, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn) – that together will span the series’ first year in 2017 and beyond!

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!

In the wake of “SOLDIER”’s staggering assault in issues #1-3, X-O MANOWAR then continues in 2017 and beyond as a superstar cast of Valiant’s most acclaimed artistic talents chart Aric’s path from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH for a vicious, year-long journey of bone and bloodshed born from the battlefields of a herculean alien empire:

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon starts here on March 22nd, 2017 with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!
