By Staff Reports

As first revealed at Comicbook.com, Valiant is proud to present your first look at X-O MANOWAR (2017) #19, an ALL-NEW STORY ARC and NEW JUMPING-ON POINT for the best-selling comics powerhouse! On September 26th, Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and eye-popping artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA) unleash“AGENT,” a new challenge on our war-torn world, as Aric of Dacia once again defends Earth from extraterrestrial terrors!

Beyond time, space, and reality, there lies the Unknown…and now it’s coming here! When soldiers from a mysterious foreign realm arrive on Earth, it’s up to the armored Visigoth known as X-O Manowar – newly returned to the planet and now the leader of his own elite G.A.T.E. unit – to deal with the intrusion. But are these otherworldly emissaries truly the threat they appear to be, or does a larger danger loom over the Valiant Universe still?

On September 26th, critically acclaimed writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY, Grass Kings) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (NINJA-K) bring a new plane of existence crashing down upon our own in X-O MANOWAR #19!
