Valiant has announced X-O Manowar (2017) #14– a STAGGERING STANDALONE MILESTONE and ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT that will return Aric of Dacia to his home world after a year of cosmic conquest…and finally answer the monumental questions that have shadowed Earth’s most powerful hero at every turn! On April 25th, the heart-wrenching revelation at the center of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt’s relentless sci-fi epic will be laid bare, as veteran artist Ariel Olivetti comes aboard for a blockbuster finale to X-O Manowar’s blistering first year…and a new chapter begins as Harbinger Wars 2 looms beyond the horizon!
After a brutal year spent waging war on the far side of the galaxy, Aric of Dacia must now face the one thing he yearned to leave behind: planet Earth. But as the man called X-O Manowar prepares for a world-shaking homecoming, he must come to terms with a savage awakening inside himself…and the obligations that still await him on our world. Just as the forces of Harbinger Wars 2 – Valiant’s seismic 2018 crossover event – begin to vie for Aric’s loyalties, a long-awaited reunion might just shatter everything we’ve come to believe about the fallen warrior-king in control of the universe’s most powerful weapon…
Featuring covers by Kaare Andrews, Raúl Allén, Keron Grant, and Felipe Massafera!

From soldier to general to emperor…to outcast! The climax of X-O MANOWAR’s whirlwind first year in the Valiant Universe starts here as “VISIGOTH” begins with a bold new entry point from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY) and explosive artist Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead)!
