In August, Valiant is releasing a massive, 800-page, paperback collection of the early adventures of its flagship title: X-O Manowar.
This 'compendium' collects issues #1 - #29, along with Unity #1 - #4, and Armor Hunters #1 - #4.
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 known as The Vine. 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. The Vine destroyed Aric’s world. Now he will give them war.Scheduled for publication on August 22, X-O Manowar Compendium One goes back to the 2012 beginning of the adventures of Aric of Dacia, and includes runs by by New York Times best-selling writers Robert Venditti (Green Lantern, The Flash) and Matt Kindt (Unity, Grass Kings), accompanied by the art of Eisner Award winner Cary Nord (Conan, Star Wars), Doug Braithwaite (Bloodshot U.S.A.), Lee Garbett (Lucifer), Diego Bernard (Ninjak), Trevor Hairsine (Divinity), and more.
