The Book of the Geomancer foretells of a deadly future for the Valiant Universe…but what if the future holds hope for one powerful hero?

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF X-O MANOWAR #1 – an explosive new chapter of the summer’s cataclysmic event from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH, X-O MANOWAR) and acclaimed artist Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS)! This October, before BOOK OF DEATH unleashes an earth-shattering climax for the heroes of today, discover another vision of the far future with an all-new standalone one-shot chronicling the last stand of Valiant’s alien-armored Visigoth…and the inescapable destiny of a world forever changed by X-O Manowar’s journey through time and space!

After hundreds of years in exile on an alien planet, Aric of Dacia – aka the unstoppable X-O Manowar – has returned to an unfamiliar Earth, only to find a planet that doesn’t remember…or want him. Can X-O Manowar finally find happiness in the aftermath of the apocalypse? Plus: the ultimate fate of the X-O Manowar armor, Shanhara, revealed…and a new generation of Valiant heroes take flight in defense of radically transformed planet Earth!

  • At an early age I knew I loved two things more than anything else Comic Books and Video Games and no matter how hard my parents tried they couldn't keep me away from the capes and pixels. Now that I have a wife and child of my own I can't wait to share these vast worlds and experiences with them and hopefully you! With GWW I created and become editor of the comics section, which has now become the websites most popular area and features daily post with unique Comic editorials, reviews and previews. Along with Will Elizondo we started the GWW Capes Crew podcast. A weekly show dedicated to to all things Comics, Superheros and Sequential Art. After a year of creating content for GWW I was made its Editor in Chief. I love everything I do and can't think of a better way to spend my time than to spread every form of geekery to every corner of the globe. Comics will all be my passion though and were my heart lies.
