Valiant Entertainment’s flagship title is relaunching with new life, and it looks amazing.

X-O MANOWAR, the long-running series about a Visigoth warrior who happens into a powerful suit of alien armor, is relaunching with a new first issue. The title first reappeared back in 2011 alongside the rest of Valiant’s comic book line, which dominated the early 90s superhero scene. Characters like Bloodshot, Ninjak, the Eternal Warrior, and Shadowman have also returned, recreating a cohesive universe of the type usually restricted to Marvel or DC.

Plus, Valiant characters are hot. Yeah, pretty much all of them. Still waiting on that swimsuit calendar, guys.

Now, after an initial 50-issue run, X-O Manowar is back, courtesy of Valiant staple writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, RAI, 4001AD) and a rotating roster of artists, beginning with Tomás Giorello (BLOODSHOT REBORN) whose interiors are teased in the preview pages below. The title tends to succeed again and again due to its irresistible combo of badass action, space battles, and long flowing hair (naturally); and if this preview is any indication, we should all be adding this to our pull lists ASAP.

 

 

X-O MANOWAR #1 ships to comic shops on March 22, 2017. Who’s ready?
