As well as new adventures of Aric of Dacia, the collected issues of the first arc of this new run of X-O Manowar (Vol 1: Soldier) will also be available tomorrow in a 112-page tradepaperback.
This is the title that initially got me hooked on Valiant's universe of unique superheroes earlier this year, and completely upended my pull-list priorities.
As you may have gathered, I'm a fan!
Also hitting comic book stores tomorrow is the first issue of an exciting new series, Secret Weapons, penned by Eric Heisserer, who wrote the cerebral sci-fi classic movie Arrival.
The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor.
In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself.
Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation.
But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons… in need of a leader.
Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action… in ways they never could have imagined…
