It has all led to this. Abducted from his time and enslaved by an alien race known as the Vine, Visigoth warrior Aric of Dacia has escaped into the modern day with the universe’s most feared weapon – the all-powerful X-O Manowar armor. Hounded by the Vine at every turn since his return to Earth, X-O Manowar is about to face his most formidable foe yet – an elite unit of X-O Commandos, sent to reclaim their weapon at any cost! But if the Vine can’t defeat the X-O Manowar armor, they’ll find another human to wield it…

Cities will be leveled. Vengeance will be wrought. And a new X-O Manowar will rise – beginning in Prelude to Planet Death – Part 1 (of 2) this January in X-O Manowar #9 and concluding this February in X-O Manowar #10!

  1. Valiant is putting out some outstanding books and this is my favorite!

    Planet Death!

  2. this is one of my favorite books by any publisher right now. my comic shop is about 35 miles away and I do not get there every week, but I had to make sure to get there this week for the newest issue of X-O (and the Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness issue 1).

    I am reading everything that Valiant is putting out right now and I am really enjoying it. Some of the best comics being made currently have the Valiant logo on the cover.

  3. This issue was fantastic. Epic action and a great story to go along with it. Great stuff!
