Valiant has signed an exclusive contract with artist Clay Mann (X-Men: Age of X). Mann's first assignment for the publisher is going to be X-O Manowar #0. This is first of two new zero issues due out in October.
Joining Mann on X-O Manowar #0 will be writer Robert Venditti. The second zero book, Unity #0 comes from the team of Matt Kindt and Cary Nord.
After narrowly surviving the events of ARMOR HUNTERS, X-O Manowar – or what is left of him – must look to the future, but, to do so, Aric must first learn the startling secret of his past. Learn the violent, never-before-told origin of Visigoth life under the brutality of the Roman Empire, and how the modern day's most feared armored hero began his journey to the stars nearly two millennia ago.
Then, the unbreakable all-star superteam known as UNITY has saved the planet, and the world is in its debt…but is this the first time a band of exceptional heroes and soldiers has rescued humanity from a doomsday threat? The Eternal Warrior remembers…and, one hundred years ago, he led another team of valiant champions on a life-or-death mission that changed the very course of history. Now, for the first time, find out why the world needs UNITY…and there has always been one to stand against the threats no ordinary team could match!
X-O Manowar #0 hits October 8th and Unity #0 the following week on October 15th.
