Valiant Comics has been kind enough to share an exclusive preview from the creative team of New York Times best-selling author Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord.
Here’s what happens in issue #4:
After years in captivity, Aric of Dacia has returned to Earth to enact his vengeance on the Roman Empire! But when the ancient warrior in control of the X-O Manowar armor discovers that more than 1,500 years has passed since his journey began, will he turn his fury on the alien empire that enslaved him or the whole of modern-day civilization? Meanwhile, the secret history of The Vine’s presence on Earth is about to be revealed. Who is The Vine’s highly placed ambassador to the human race? And will he be Aric’s one ally in this strange new world – or his very first enemy?
Aric’s centuries-spanning war for freedom is about to hit the home front in an explosive finale that will send shockwaves through the Valiant Universe. Learn the true price of victory when the summer’s hottest series reaches its first major milestone on August 29th, only in X-O Manowar #4!
