Before space… Before the armor… Return to the apex of the Visigoth conquest as a younger, brasher Aric and a sword-wielding grifter set off on a continent-spanning quest for fortune, glory, and power! From the bloodstained sands of the gladiatorial arena to the dunes of the Arabian Desert, meet the man who would become the warrior-king of an alien civilization – and our own world’s most powerful hero – as he sets out to seize his destiny once upon a time in a land of faraway kings and unrepentant conquerors!

Jump on board one of the most acclaimed series in comics here as visionary creators Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine – the best-selling team behind DIVINITY – reunite for a thrilling, four-part melee of blood and steely-eyed daring at the height of the barbarian age with a brutal new chapter in the epic saga of X-O Manowar!

Every sin casts a shadow…

After years of purgatorial exile, Jack Boniface – the newly returned Shadowman – is back in the one place he thought he’d left behind for good: the damned dimension known as Deadside! His mission? To recover a lost relic of the Shadowman legacy that could redefine the eternal balance of power between the living and the dead. If he fails, the vengeful voodoo god called Baron Samedi will exact a terrible toll on the souls of humanity… But – back among the monsters, back among the cursed – can Jack stand resolutely against evil incarnate without succumbing to the call of the literal demons within himself?

Superstar writer Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One) and high-octane artist Stephen Segovia (Action Comics) present a long-awaited moment in the epic saga of a comics icon and bring Shadowman raging back to the forefront of the Valiant Universe as the “FEAR OF THE DARK” story arc unleashes a finale of unthinkable cosmic proportions!

X-O MANOWAR VOL 4: VISIGOTH TPB
Written by MATT KINDT
Art by RYAN BODENHEIM and ARIEL OLIVETTI
Cover by LEWIS LAROSA (MAR182018)

From SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR…to OUTCAST!

Aric of Dacia’s bone-crushing climb to the throne of an alien world earned him scores of allies…and a legion of scorned enemies. Now, 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?

X-O MANOWAR’s whirlwind first year in the Valiant Universe comes to a climax here in a bold new volume from Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and explosive artists Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying and the Dead) and Ariel Olivetti (Incredible Hulk)!
