A Bounty Hunter Prison Break – Your First Look At X-O Manowar #10

by Hannah Means Shannon

Valiant have released their first lettered preview of X-O Manowar #10, which acts as an “interlude” and introduction to the new “Visigoth” arc of the series and introduces a group of badass alien bounty hunters sent to take down Aric. The issue has also been designed as a jumping on point for the series, so new readers can appreciate these wild new characters, too.

Written by Matt Kindt (Eternity, Mind MGMT) and illustrated by Renato Guedes (Wolverine) in fabulous atmospheric style, this “standalone” introduction to a band of bounty hunters arrives on December 27th.

X-O Manowar #10 also features covers by Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Salvation), Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), and Felipe Massafera (Shaper).


On January 24th in X-O Manowar #11 will arrive as the first issue of the “Visigoth” arc, written by  Kindt and illustrated by Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead).

Valiant tease:

Stripped of his crown and cast out of his kingdom, the man known as X-O Manowar must return to his roots as a sword-wielding warrior of Earth if he is to survive the relentless band of intergalactic bounty hunters that have been hired to kill him cold. But with few places left to turn, could the last Visigoth’s best hope be the all-powerful…but insidious…weapon he once swore away: the X-O Manowar armor?
