This week sees the return of one of the most legendary publishers in comics: Valiant Comics! Originally founded in 1989, Valiant is one of the most storied comic publishers of all time and has featured work by many of the industry’s top creative talents, including Jim Shooter, Bob Layton, Barry Windsor-Smith, Joe Quesada, David Lapham, Bryan Hitch, Steve Ditko and many more. Valiant titles — from X-O Manowar to Magnus Robot Fighter to Ninjak — have always had something of a cult following, and this new beginning for the publisher will give people a place to jump on.
It all starts with one man…

Born into battle, Aric of Dacia — heir to the throne of the Visigoth people — has never known peace. After a brutal encounter with a mysterious enemy known as The Vine leaves him a prisoner on an incomprehensible world, the only hope Aric has of returning to his family and saving them from slavery is to seize a weapon of incalculable destruction and become X-O Manowar! The Vine destroyed Aric’s world. Now he will give them war.
