Valiant's flagship hero returns this November in X-O MANOWAR #2!

Aric of Dacia, aka X-O MANOWAR, is back and heading in a bold new direction with Harvey Award-winner DENNIS “HOPELESS” HALLUM (Star Wars: Darth Vader - Dark Visions) and astonishing artist EMILIO LAISO (Marvel’s Spider-Man: Velocity). The first issue earned a spot in the top 100 best-selling comics when it debuted. Now, the action-packed second issue is set to arrive in comic shops on November 25th, 2020, with covers by Eisner Award-winning artist CHRISTIAN WARD (Invisible Kingdom), NETHO DIAZ (G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero), and a 1:25 variant by DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON (Wonder Woman: Dead Earth).

"X-O Manowar has always been a nuclear missile with the mind of a noble warrior," remarked Dennis. "He's unstoppable in combat. Need to defeat an alien warlord? Repel an intergalactic invasion or end a war? Aric's your guy. But this time, X-O Manowar is acting locally. What happens when a nuclear missile moves in down the street? How does a superweapon playing superhero save the neighborhood? How does he change the world?"

Check out the first four pages of X-O MANOWAR #2, below.
