Aric of Dacia has seen a lot. Born an heir to the Visigoth throne, he was taken from battle with the Romans to slavery in the stars. He found a strange suit of powerful armor that allowed him to fight free–only to find that years of travel among the stars had left him out of sync with the Earth’s time. He was no longer in his own time but in our modern world, fighting new wars. The armor itself turned out to be a very mixed blessing.

Now, just in time for X-O Manowar‘s twenty-fifth anniversary, Matt Kindt and the Valiant creators have cooked up a whole new mess of trouble for him. Dinesh Shamdasani, Valiant’s CEO and Chief Creative Officer told IGN that “Matt and the five-strong art team of Tomas Giorello, Doug Braithwaite, Clayton Crain, Ryan Bodenheim, and Mico Suayan are doing something we haven’t seen yet with this character – making him a literal “man of war” that’s about to take on not just an army, but an entire planet, over the course of 2017.”

March 22nd sees the launch of a new starting point for readers and a new arc and new beginning with X-O Manowar #1 by Matt Kindt and artist Tomas Giorello. Below is some of the stunning art planned for the arc, with images by the different artists and from various books:

Synopsis for X-O Manowar (2017)

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!
