Aric of Dacia, wielder of the X-O Manowar armor, has the throne of an alien world. But is that enough? For this Visigoth turned warlord, probably not.
X-O Manowar #9 is the sole offering this coming week from Valiant Comics, but it’s an explosive one. The book takes the now-emperor and feared warlord and looks at his thirst for war.
Aric is from a warlike culture remember, one that had to fight for its very existence against the tide of Rome on ancient Earth. So what happens when a Visigoth becomes a ruler? Is there any hope of peace?
Hail to the emperor!
With his throne attained and his enemies defeated, Aric of Dacia is not only the undisputed emperor of the war-shattered world of Gorin… He is one of the most feared warlords in the known galaxy! But as this former hero of Earth grows more confident with each brutal campaign, he’ll soon discover that his greatest enemy is…himself. Can Aric and the ultra-powerful X-O Manowar armor that he wields peacefully sustain such unyielding amounts of power…or will the thirst for war inside him consume everything he’s fought for?
New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY, Dept. H), and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) crown the final chapter of “EMPEROR” here as Valiant’s chart-topping interstellar opus challenges the cosmos itself!
