Press Release
 
Valiant is proud to announce X-O MANOWAR (2017) #14 – a STAGGERING STANDALONE MILESTONE and ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT that will return Aric of Dacia to his home world after a year of cosmic conquest...and finally answer the monumental questions that have shadowed Earth's most powerful hero at every turn! On April 25th, the heart-wrenching revelation at the center of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt's relentless sci-fi epic will be laid bare, as veteran artist Ariel Olivetti (Incredible Hulk) comes aboard for a blockbuster finale to X-O Manowar's blistering first year...and a new chapter begins as HARBINGER WARS 2 looms beyond the horizon!
 
After a brutal year spent waging war on the far side of the galaxy, Aric of Dacia must now face the one thing he yearned to leave behind: planet Earth. But as the man called X-O Manowar prepares for a world-shaking homecoming, he must come to terms with a savage awakening inside himself...and the obligations that still await him on our world. Just as the forces of HARBINGER WARS 2 – Valiant’s seismic 2018 crossover event – begin to vie for Aric’s loyalties, a long-awaited reunion might just shatter everything we’ve come to believe about the fallen warrior-king in control of the universe’s most powerful weapon...
 
"[X-O MANOWAR #14] will cast the first year into a new light," writer Matt Kindt told Inverse. "It’s not a twist, like, 'I tricked you.' It’s more that it reveals something that happened to him that will give new meaning to everything he did in those first 13 issues. Not just why he’d run off to another planet, but, also, why he buried the armor in the first issue. What led to that? Those questions, which I think as you read the series you get distracted by all the politics and action, you forget he was mad at that armor. Him and his relationship to his armor is one of the things that caused his break from Earth."
 
The comics odyssey of a lifetime comes full circle on April 25th, as Matt Kindt and Ariel Olivetti begin the countdown to HARBINGER WARS 2 with an inescapable turning point for the Valiant Universe’s unrelenting man of war, only in X-O MANOWAR #14 – featuring covers by Kaare Andrews (Astonishing X-Men), Raúl Allén (SECRET WEAPONS), Keron Grant (Fantastic Four), and Felipe Massafera (Shaper)!
