We’ve known it’s coming for a while, but we didn’t know who or what it would be. Today the speculation around the new line of Valiant Comics turns to fact as Valiant announced the first title from the new line of comics along with it’s creative team. X-O Manowar #1 will hit comic stands on May 2, 2012 with writer Robert Venditti and artist Cary Nord, featuring covers by Esad Ribic.
Venditti is best known as the writer of The Surrogates, the hit series from Top Shelf that was turned into a movie starring Bruce Willis. Artist Cary Nord is best known for his work at Marvel and at Dark Horse on Conan and fans should be familiar with Esad Ribic from his covers on Uncanny X-Force.
Valiant Comics provided us a sneak peek of Cary Nord’s art on X-O Manowar #1 including his cover to the issue, along with Ribic’s cover (right).
