A new X-O Manowar ongoing will be launching this fall, following the planned finale to the current Matt Kindt run with April's #26. No creative team has been named for the new volume, however the publisher has released this promotional image by Doug Braithwaite and colorist Diego Rodriguez with the tagline "Unleashed."
When asked for more information, a Valiant representative said "Late 2019 will see the return of X-O Manowar. The teaser image holds some clues as to what is coming – prepare to be blown away!"
Writer Matt Kindt's run on X-O Manowar began in March 2017, and over the course of the run included artwork from Braithwaite, Tomas Giorello, Clayton Crain, Ryan Bodenheim, Mico Suayan, and more.
"Matt Kindt is one of my favorite people, not just in comics, but in the world. His work at Valiant has, in my opinion, been one of the strongest creative runs in modern comics," Valiant's Senior Editorial Director Robert Meyers told Newsarama. "Matt is an amazing collaborator, always bringing new ideas, and always taking input from both his editors and his creative partners. The Valiant Universe will always be home for Matt."
Look for Valiant's April 2019 solicitations later this month, and for more on the X-O Manowar relaunch as it's announced.
