“This cover represents more than a year’s worth of hard work on the part of Valiant’s editorial team and the extraordinary cast of artists you now see before you,” said Valiant Associate Director of Digital Media & Development Josh Johns. “We wanted to celebrate X-O MANOWAR #50 in the biggest way we could, and this cover is only the first surprise we have in store.”

“X-O MANOWAR #50 will be, without a doubt, the single biggest milestone ever produced by Valiant,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Beginning with the incredible jam cover, this issue will stand on its own as both a tribute to the character’s vital place in the Valiant Universe and the entirety of the years-long epic that Robert Venditti – along with artists Cary Nord, Lee Garbett, Trevor Hairsine, Doug Braithwaite, Diego Bernard, Rafa Sandoval, Robert Gill, and Valiant’s amazing editorial team– forged into one of the greatest narrative feats of the modern era. Big moments don’t get much bigger than this.”
