X-O Manowar #15 Takes Hold as Matt Kindt & Trevor Hairsine Reunite for “Barbarians”– In Stores May 23rd!

Valiant has released a first look inside X-O Manowar (2017) #15 – the FIRST ISSUE of “Barbarians,” an ALL-NEW ARC and FEROCIOUS NEW JUMPING-ON POINT from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine! On May 23rd, the best-selling creative team comes together once again for a bombastic new adventure set in heydey of the Visigoth Kingdom. Travel back, back into Aric of Dacia’s storied past, as he reveals the journey that molded him into the interstellar armor-wielding warrior he is today!

As Harbinger Wars 2 besieges the Valiant Universe – and X-O Manowar along with it – Aric of Dacia cannot escape the flames that now threaten his future…or the shadows that cloud his past. Before space… Before the armor… Return to the apex of Visigoth conquest as a younger, brasher Aric and a sword-wielding grifter set off on a continent-spanning quest for fortune, glory, and power! From the bloodstained sands of the gladiatorial arena to the dunes of the Arabian Desert, meet the man who would become the warrior-king of an alien civilization – and our own world’s most powerful hero – as he sets out to seize his destiny once upon a time in a land of faraway kings and unrepentant conquerors!

Featuring covers by Lewis LaRosaJim MahfoodVeronica Fish, and Viktor Kalvachev!
