If you are looking for a jumping on point into the Valiant universe, Manowar #0 might be the issue to pick up, according to the company.
After narrowly surviving the events of ARMOR HUNTERS, X-O Manowar – or what is left of him – must look to the future, but, to do so, he must first learn the startling secret of his past.
The issue is written by Robert Venditti, with art by Clay Mann. Valiant has hired Dave Johnson of 100 Bullets, and Superman: Red Son fame, to create five interlocking variant covers for the issue.
X-O Manowar #0 arrives October 8, 2014, and has a $3.99 cover price.
