The next exciting storyline to Valiant Comics‘ flagship title begins in “X-O Manowar” #15, in stores July 10. Brought to comic shops everywhere by regular series writer Robert Vendetti and artist Lee Garbett, “X-O” #15 has been teased by the publisher as the first issue leading to a “Unity” event.
After liberating a group of human slaves from The Vine homeworld of Loam in “Planet Death,” Aric of Dacia looks to re-claim the kingdom his family lost after his abduction 1600 years ago. Aric’s direct and impulsive actions put him directly in the sights of The Eternal Warrior, leading to a confrontation that has been brewing since “X-O Manowar” #1. Go back and check for yourself, doubter!
While the issue serves mostly as an epilogue to “Planet Death” and a set up to the confrontations ahead, “X-O Manowar” #15 provides enough intrigue to rev fans up for the possibilities to come. This is the kind of world building that has been desperately lacking from DC’s New 52 relaunch.
