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 the summer’s hottest series reaches its first major milestone on August 29th, only in X-O Manowar #4!

  1. This book is frikkin AWESOME!!!!

  2. Reading this and Harbinger, Blood Shot, and can’t wait for shadowman

  3. Another solid issue. So far I’d rank the titles:

    1. Bloodshot
    2. X-O Manowar
    3. Archer and Armstrong
    4. Harbinger

    Even Harbinger’s been decent (IMO), but the other books have just kicked ass.

  4. Kick ass series!After each issue I read I’m dying for the next one!

  5. I totally agree. I love this series and all of the Valiant books so far. I think the Archer & Armstrong is may favorite right now, with X-O a very close 2nd. New Valiant books are running on all cylinders for me. I want to see the Eternal Warrior and Timewalker. Stoked for Rai and Shadowman as well. I have my store pulling all the Valiant books, including all the additional printings of each one.

  6. valiant have been really really great so far.

    I look forward to shadowman

    their free comic book day also had eternal warrior slated for winter 2012 and Rai slated for spring 2013 so hope we get more info on those 2 soon.

    although if they continue the $3.99 price tag I’m not gonna be able to get them all which is unfortunate as there’s not a single one I don’t like so far.

  7. This is the only Valiant book I’ve gotten (except the first issues of Harbinger and Bloodshot, which were never my cup of tea in the 90s) since the relaunch. Too bad they don’t still have the rights to Solar. I’ll probably check out Shadowman when it arrives.

    How was Archer and Armstrong?

  8. i love this book! i had to drop harbinger due to financial constraints, but i’m keeping this as well as A&A

  9. I just wish the artist and writers would of showed a little more creativity when it came too the Vine. But I do like
    this and and the rest of the release from Valiant.
