Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF X-O MANOWAR #1 – the next essential one-shot at the heart of Valiant’s cataclysmic summer event from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and Harvey Award-nominated artist Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG)! On October 21th, before BOOK OF DEATH reveals its widespread ramifications for the heroes of today, discover the world that awaits Valiant’s alien-armored Visigoth in the century yet to come as Aric of Dacia’s journey from past to future comes full circle!
After hundreds of years in exile on an alien planet, Aric of Dacia – better known to the world as the unstoppable hero called X-O Manowar – has returned to an unfamiliar Earth, only to find a planet that doesn’t remember…or want him. Can X-O Manowar finally find happiness in the aftermath of the apocalypse? Plus: the ultimate fate of the X-O Manowar armor, Shanhara, stands revealed…and a new generation of Valiant heroes get ready to take flight in defense of a radically transformed planet Earth!
