Aric of Dacia had returned for a new run in March this year, but only a single issue made it to the shelves when the COVID-19 promptly put a halt to more issues. Now, Valiant Entertainment has revealed the release date for the second issue: November 25th. Writer Dennis Hallum said to Comicbook.com:
X-O Manowar has always been a nuclear missile with the mind of a noble warrior. He’s unstoppable in combat, a white hot, world-seering superweapon. Need to defeat an alien warlord, repel an intergalactic invasion or end a war, Aric’s your guy. But this time X-O Manowar is acting local. What happens when a nuclear missile moves in down the street? How does a superweapon playing superhero save the neighborhood? How does he change the world?
This issue will be drawn by Emilio Laiso have three different covers available. You can see all of them and a few previews here.
X-O Manowar was first released in 1992 and has sold over 8 million copies so far. In 2016, a film based on the character was announced, and pro wrestler John Cena hinted he may take part in it.
