Third Eye Faithful, we gotta tell you: for the last few years — Valiant has been one of the most underrated, and most awesome comic book publishers around.
They’ve put out quality read after quality read, and now, after flying under the radar for some time — we have a feeling they’re going to explode onto the scene this week with the incredible new X-O MANOWAR #1!
Valiant combines the cutting edge appeal of creator-owned fantasy and science fiction like IMAGE COMICS hits SAGA, BLACK SCIENCE, and more, with the shared universe appeal of the Marvel and DC Universes.
Together, the two approaches meld into one heck of an exciting reading experience, and provides a very unique feel and tone to the world of VALIANT.
If you’ve found yourself looking for the universe-building appeal of Marvel, but with the creator-driven approach to story and art of Image, then you’ll love the world of Valiant, and books like X-O MANOWAR are a perfect place to begin reading.
Featuring the gorgeous artwork of TOMAS GIORELLO, which has a very rad eurocomics appeal, and the sharp writing of Matt Kindt (who penned the recent new hit GRASS KINGS), X-O MANOWAR tells the story of ARIC of DACIA.
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!
Wanna get into it? Scoop a copy this week, and Third Eye Faithful, we’ve got so much faith in the book that if you don’t like it – we’ll give you your money back!
