First Look Inside The X-O Manowar Annual 2016

With the final issue of the series coming fast, Valiant has sent out a first look inside the X-O Manowar Annual 2016 #1. Writer Robert Venditti (Green Lantern) and artist Pere Perez (Archer & Armstrong) lead off a centuries-spanning look at X-O Manowar's past and present in a giant-sized adventure. The issue also features the talents of Amy Chu (Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death), Adam Gorham (DEAD DROP), Jody Houser (FAITH), Mike McKone (Teen Titans), and more.

With X-O MANOWAR #50 just over the horizon, 2016 is primed and ready to be X-O Manowar's most pivotal year yet! But before Aric of Dacia can confront the biggest threat Earth has ever faced, he must first reflect on the past…and the outcome of a bloodstained battle on the frontier of the Roman Empire that continues to be felt to this day! Then: X-O Manowar's sworn enemy, Commander Trill, readies for the war that is to come…by undergoing a life-threatening trial-by-fire that will test every ounce of his intellect and fury. And then Col. Jamie Capshaw must singlehandedly defend G.A.T.E from a menace nobody expected… just as the Armorines begin an all-new mission at the heart of X-O Manowar's world!

X-O Manowar Annual 2016 #1 features covers from Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), Carmen Carnero (The Punisher), Brian Level (The Mantle), and Jeff Dekal (Journey into Mystery).
