Valiant have a doozy of a Free Comic Book Day issue being released in your local comic shops this weekend, on Saturday, the 6th of May. It features not only their biggest selling title right now, X-O Manowar, but other teases and reveals, including meeting Bloodshot’s daughter Jesse, who’s going to be a big part of the upcoming series Bloodshot: Salvation. All kinds of things included in this comic are going to be tying in to developments in the Valiant Universe.
The FCBD special is written by Matt Kindt, Jeff Lemire, and Eric Heisserer, with art by Cafu, Juan Jose Ryp, and Raul Allen. The cover, of course, is by Tomas Giorello. Both X-O Manowar and Bloodshot are in the “spotlight” for this one. The X-O Manowar story is a “prelude” to the current series, according to Valiant. The Bloodshot story is also a story setting up and looking ahead, this time to Bloodshot Salvation.
Valiant are also teasing Secret Weapons, Ninjak, and some “surprise revelations” for Harbinger Wars 2. Like I said, this is an explosive FCBD issue for Valiant.
Here’s a look at the interior art on the X-O Manowar FCBD special:
