Two peoples. One planet. This summer, can a man of war broker peace between Earth and a renegade alien nation in search of a new world?
Valiant has announced Exodus – a pivotal new story arc beginning this August in X-O Manowar #39! Jump on board here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and fan-favorite artist Rafa Sandoval trap Valiant’s most powerful hero between two peoples he has sworn to protect – humanity…and a mass migration of alien refugees, orphaned and cast adrift by the unassailable attack of Dead Hand!
Aric of Dacia is X-O Manowar, hero to humanity, leader of the remaining Visigoths, and a husband about to start a new family. He is also the bearer of Shanhara, and tantamount to a god in the eyes of the alien race known as the Vine. Now, in the aftermath of DEAD HAND’s destruction of their world, the Vine need a new home and have chosen Earth – tearing Aric between two races that worship him, but each despise one another. Have these last living remnants of the Vine’s civilization come seeking peace? And what changes will their arrival herald for our world? All – human and alien alike – will be tested when an old enemy seizes this moment of turmoil to attack Aric at his weakest…and forces the people of Earth to pay an impossible price for X-O Manowar’s allegiance.
Featuring covers by red-hot artists Rafa Sandoval, Robert Gill, CAFU, and Brent Peeples! In the aftermath of X-O Manowar’s oversized wedding extravaganza, a new era for humanity begins here with a perfect jumping-on point for the acclaimed superhero series.
