Take a look at X-O Manowar killing off some suckers.
Source: Press Release
The Summer of Valiant...is going to end soon. But it's going to end for everyone else in the Northern Hemisphere too because that's how the calendar works. There's only about, what? A month of summer left? Good, because it's hot as hell out there. We really need to cool off.
Anyway, that's not what's important here. What's important is that our friends at Valiant have sent over a preview of X-O Manowar #4, in which our main character returns to Earth, only it's thousands of years into his future (which is our present) and he...kills a ton of dudes. Man, that's a lot of killing. Sure, it's a bunch of military and swat dudes shooting at him first, but man, those guys are just doing their jobs. Also, Aric of Darica is totally confused because he's not in his own time and he has no idea what's going on. So, yeah. We're cool with the killing. Carry on.
Anyway, read what Valiant has to say about the issue, and then check out the kill-tastic preview pages below that.
Valiant Preview: X-O MANOWAR #4
Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of X-O Manowar #4, from the chart-topping creative team of New York Times best-selling author Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord!
After years in captivity, Aric of Dacia has returned to Earth to enact his vengeance on the Roman Empire! But when the ancient warrior in control of the X-O Manowar armor discovers that more than 1,500 years has passed since his journey began, will he turn his fury on the alien empire that enslaved him or the whole of modern day civilization? Meanwhile, the secret history of The Vine’s presence on Earth is about to be revealed. Who is The Vine's highly placed ambassador to the human race? And will he be Aric’s one ally in this strange new world – or his very first enemy?
Aric's centuries-spanning war for freedom is about to hit the home front in an explosive finale that will send shockwaves through the Valiant Universe. Learn the true price of victory when when the summer’s hottest series reaches its first major milestone on August 29th, only in X-O Manowar #4!
