Valiant Reveals Star-Studded Cast of Creators for X-O MANOWAR #50 – A Giant-Sized Anniversary Milestone! 64-Page Blockbuster Celebrates 2016’s Biggest Series Finale with Venditti, Braithwaite, Houser, Kindt, Nord, Pulido, and More Major Talents!
After unleashing a massive cast of 50 leading talents for the largest ever jam cover in comics history, Valiant is now proud to unveil the next massive revelation for X-O MANOWAR #50 – a colossal, 64-page anniversary spectacular crash-landing in stores everywhere this September!
For the first time anywhere, Valiant is honored to reveal the star-studded, history-making roster of writers and artists slated to contribute to September’s giant-sized X-O MANOWAR #50 finale – a blockbuster-style tribute to the vaunted, 56-issue run that set the Valiant Universe in motion!
For centuries, the sacred X-O Manowar has stood unrivaled as the universe’s most powerful weapon. Today, will it equal Earth’s doom? An unthinkable alien race known only as The Torment has come to our world in search of the armor’s secrets. Now, they stand opposed by Aric of Dacia – former slave, noble warrior, resolute king, and current master of the armor’s near-limitless capabilities. But are one man…and one weapon…enough to repel a force capable of leveling a thousand civilizations?
A whole new era for X-O Manowar begins here…and you won’t believe what’s coming next!
Spanning X-O Manowar’s five-year-long impact on the people of Earth, and setting the stage for star-spanning adventures yet to come in 2017 and beyond, no comic book fan can afford to miss the ultimate cosmic battle for the fate of Valiant’s most powerful hero!
“Reaching 50 issues is no small feat in today’s marketplace, and Robert Venditti, Cary Nord, Doug Braithwaite, Trevor Hairsine, Diego Bernard, and Robert Gill – among a host of many others – have done an extraordinary job making X-O MANOWAR one of the most acclaimed, most vital, and most deftly executed series on the stands,” said Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons. “Issue #50 is a defining moment – one that will reassess not only the extraordinary journey the character has taken since 2012, but where he is headed next. This truly is the capstone for one of the most compelling and considered runs in modern comics, and the final salvo of a long-form epic that I believe will stand as one of Valiant’s great achievements for years to come.”
