Valiant Entertainment is relaunching its flagship X-O Manowar title with incoming writer Dennis "Hopeless" Hallum and artist Emilio Laiso. First reported by Heat Vision, the new series will be "a fresh start" for the character.

"[The new series will be] a fresh start for X-O that draws from all of the best parts of his history without being bogged down by continuity," Hallum said in a statement. "You learn everything you need to know about these characters and their past in issue No. 1 and it's full speed ahead: Season 1, Episode 1 of your new favorite action show. Where have these characters been all your life?"

The publisher doesn't give any specific details about the new series beyond a tagline included with the ad (seen at right): "Save the day, destroy the world."

X-O Manowar #1 is scheduled to launch March 25.
