Preview: X-O Manowar #25 Adds Cary Nord, Tom Fowler, Andy Runton, and More!

Valiant has announced that May’s X-O Manowar #25 – an oversized anniversary spectacular leading directly into June’s massive Armor Hunters crossover event – is adding even more creative firepower to an already jam-packed roster of superstar talents for X-O Manowar’s biggest milestone issue ever!

Joining previously solicited creators Robert Venditti, Diego Bernard, Bryan Hitch, J.G. Jones, Justin Jordan, and Rafer Roberts, Valiant is proud to add red-hot creators Cary Nord, Sean Chen, Tom Fowler, Barry Kitson, and Andy Runton to the all-star line-up!

X-O Manowr #25 is a perfect jumping on point with an all-new, full-length Armor Hunters prologue by Robert Venditti and Diego Bernard; the origin of X-O Manowar retold by Robert Venditti and J.G. Jones; a brand new five-page story by superstar artist Bryan Hitch; a new short story by Eisner Award winner Andy Runton; and much, much more!

A relentless and surgical strike team from the farthest reaches of space – sworn to exterminate the X-O Manowar armor and all like it – have found finally their last target. They will hunt it. They will trap it. They will kill it. And, soon, the Armor Hunters will rid the universe of the X-O Manowar’s incalculable destructive power…even if it means taking the Earth with it.

The issue also features covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic and Bryan Hitch, and incentive variants by Arturo Lozzi, Sean Chen and Terry Dodson!
