X-O Manowar #48 Heralds “Long Live the King.” A First Look.

As the countdown to X-O MANOWAR’s landmark issue #50 finale continues, our world’s greatest hero must join forces with his own bitterest foe to prevent armageddon!

Valiant has released a first look at X-O Manowar #48 – the cataclysmic continuation of the year’s seismic storyline, “Long Live the King,” by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and acclaimed artists Joe Bennett and Roberto de la Torre! On July 27th, Aric of Dacia – the unstoppable X-O Manowar – faces his darkest days as the ancient alien race known as the Torment incite a reign of terror upon all of humanity! With annihilation nigh, X-O Manowar must charge into his greatest battle yet – one that will change his future…and the fate of the entire Valiant Universe…forever!

They’re here! The Torment – a world-devouring race older than history itself— has arrived on Earth. And now, all that stands between our existence and complete extermination is Aric of Dacia, heir to the Visigoth throne and wielder of the X-O Manowar armor! But as the Torment unleash a wrath unlike anything the galaxy has seen, even Earth’s most powerful protector will find himself hopelessly outmatched. With humanity standing on the brink of extinction, X-O Manowar must turn to his greatest adversary for help…the cunning, but savage Commander Trill!
