Posted by June 14, 2016 Comment

As we approach the series finale for X-O Manowar, Valiant has sent us an early preview for the second part of the Long Live The King storyline. Written by Robert Venditti and drawn by Joe Bennett and Roberto de la Torre, the arc pits Aric of Dacia against an ancient alien race known as the Torment, who are reign terror upon humanity… as ancient alien races tend to do.

They’re here! The Torment – a world-devouring race older than history itself— has arrived on Earth. And now, all that stands between our existence and complete extermination is Aric of Dacia, heir to the Visigoth throne and wielder of the X-O Manowar armor! But as the Torment unleash a wrath unlike anything the galaxy has seen, even Earth’s most powerful protector will find himself hopelessly outmatched. With humanity standing on the brink of extinction, X-O Manowar must turn to his greatest adversary for help…the cunning, but savage Commander Trill!

X-O Manowar #48 features covers by Kano (Swamp Thing), Phil Jimenez (DC Universe: Rebirth), Khoi Pham (Ninjak), Diego Latorre (Dante’s Inferno), Thony Silas (Justice League: Gods & Monsters), and Sergio Davila (Injustice: Gods Among Us).
