First Look: X-O MANOWAR #14 – Matt Kindt & Ariel Olivetti Bring Valiant’s Sci-Fi Saga Back to Earth on April 25th!
As revealed today at Multiversity Comics, Valiant is proud to present your first lettered look inside X-O MANOWAR (2017) #14 – A STAGGERING STANDALONE MILESTONE and ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Ariel Olivetti (The Incredible Hulk)! On April 25th, the soldier-turned-emperor at the heart of Valiant’s best-selling sci-fi juggernaut ends his galaxy-spanning crusade across the cosmos with a star-studded return to Earth…and sets the stage for the cataclysmic onset of HARBINGER WARS 2, the must-read comics event of 2018!
After a brutal year spent waging war on the far side of the galaxy, Aric of Dacia must now face the one thing he yearned to leave behind: planet Earth. But as the man called X-O Manowar prepares for a world-shaking homecoming, he must come to terms with a savage awakening inside himself…and the obligations that still await him on our world. Just as the forces of HARBINGER WARS 2 – Valiant’s seismic 2018 crossover event – begin to vie for Aric’s loyalties, a long-awaited reunion might just shatter everything we’ve come to believe about the fallen warrior-king in control of the universe’s most powerful weapon…
