Venditti & Hairsine Enter PLANET DEATH in X-O MANOWAR #9

xo_9_cover_1.jpg
The most ambitious X-O Manowar event EVER – Planet Death – kicks off this January with a two-part prologue beginning in X-O Manowar #9 by New York Times best-selling author Robert Venditti and comics superstar Trevor Hairsine! Jump on board one of the most buzzed about books of the year as X-O Manowar ignites an interstellar war and changes the landscape of the Valiant Universe forever.
 
It has all led to this. Abducted from his time and enslaved by an alien race known as the Vine, Visigoth warrior Aric of Dacia has escaped into the modern day with the universe's most feared weapon – the all-powerful X-O Manowar armor. Hounded by the Vine at every turn since his return to Earth, X-O Manowar is about to face his most formidable foe yet – an elite unit of X-O Commandos, sent to reclaim their weapon at any cost! But if the Vine can't defeat the X-O Manowar armor, they'll find another human to wield it…

Cities will be leveled. Vengeance will be wrought. And a new X-O Manowar will rise – beginning in Prelude to Planet Death – Part 1 (of 2) this January in X-O Manowar #9 and concluding this February in X-O Manowar #10!
 
Then, X-O Manowar takes the battle away from Earth and directly to the doorstep of the Vine homeworld with Planet Death – Part 1 (of 4) in X-O Manowar #11 – featuring the triumphant return of Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord to Valiant's signature hero.
 
The culmination of X-O Manowar’s first year in the Valiant Universe is almost upon us. Don't miss the crucial first chapter when Valiant begins the campaign to conquer Planet Death this January in X-O Manowar #9 – featuring a Pullbox Exclusive Variant by Cary Nord and a variant cover by Clayton Crain!
