Valiant, CGC and Geppi’s Entertainment Museum Celebrate 1 million copies of X-O Manowar
Valiant Entertainment, the Certified Guaranty Company (CGC), and Geppi’s Entertainment Museum head to Cadmus publishing plant in Richmond, VA to celebrate the 1,000,000th copy of X-O Manowar sold since the series’ 2012 debut. The 1,000,000th copy will be removed directly from the presses today at Cadmus by Valiant representatives during the printing of the upcoming X-O Manowar #49 and subsequently entrusted to CGC’s renowned team of preservation experts for grading and encapsulation. The one-of-a-kind, 1,000,000th copy – totaling all copies of X-O Manowar sold across print and digital in the United States and abroad since 2012 – will then be placed on display at Baltimore Comic Con 2016 before entering the permanent collection of the Geppi’s Entertainment Museum in Baltimore, MD alongside the world’s rarest and most valuable comic books.
Valiant will also be offering fans at Baltimore Comic-Con 2016 the chance to join in the celebration of X-O Manowar’s 1,000,000th copy sold with the X-O Manowar 1,000,000th Copy Commemorative Seal. Fans who purchase or provide copies of X-O Manowar #49 (any cover) at the Valiant booth (#2008) will be afforded the opportunity to have their copy embossed with an official Valiant 1,000,000th copy seal – designed in honor of X-O Manowar’s legendary achievement and forever commemorating a new milestone in Valiant history – free of charge.
