Retailer Advisory: Valiant Announces X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 THIRD PRINTING – The Year’s Best-Selling Independent Comic Heads into Yet Another Sell-Out!

XO2017_001_THIRD-PRINTING_COVER_LAROSAWith 90,000 copies sold and counting, the year’s top-selling comic from an independent publisher is returning to the front lines with another sold-out printing!

Valiant is proud to announce that X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Tomas Giorello (BLOODSHOT REBORN), and one of the year’s most acclaimed new series debuts – has sold out at the distributor level for the second time and will return to store shelves everywhere with the X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 THIRD PRINTING on May 24th alongside X-O MANOWAR (2017) #3!

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon returns to comic shops everywhere on May 24th with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

Don’t miss your chance to see why fans and critics everywhere have crowned Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello’s X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 as a must-read spectacle of high-octane adventure and one of the year’s most essential new series:

XO2017_001_COVER_SECOND-PRINT_LAROSAValiant Rushes 2017’s Biggest Independent Comics Debut Back to Diamond to Fill Backorders with No Delay

To meet a level of unprecedented demand from retailers nationwide, Valiant is proud to announce that it will be replenishing copies of X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 – currently on backorder at Diamond – with first printings borrowed from the publisher’s own convention inventory while supplies last. In addition, to meet the red-hot demand for the FIRST ISSUE of the EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and blockbuster artist Tomas Giorello, Valiant is immediately returning to press for the X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 SECOND PRINTING VARIANT, which will arrive in stores on April 26th alongside X-O MANOWAR (2017) #2.

“We knew that X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1 would be our biggest new series launch of 2017, but even with an exceptionally large overprint of the first issue, we exhausted a month’s worth of supply in just 48 hours,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “To make sure that our retail partners do not have to wait the weeks that it would normally take to have the issue reprinted, shipped to Diamond and then on to them, we are taking the unprecedented step of tapping Valiant’s own supply for the upcoming summer convention season and will be filling backorders with them effective immediately.

“Valiant is dedicating all of its available resources to X-O Manowar’s success, and we want fans and retailers to know that we’ve redoubled our efforts to get the first issue back onto shelves as quickly as possible.”

In comics shops everywhere now, a stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon begins now with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Now is the time to find out why Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello’s savage ongoing series debut is inspiring rave reviews from fans, critics, and retailers with an awe-inspiring vision of superhero-driven science fiction:

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon starts here on March 22nd with part one of “SOLDIER” – a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor.

Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

In the wake of “SOLDIER”’s staggering assault in issues #1-3X-O MANOWAR then continues in 2017 and beyond as a superstar cast of Valiant’s most acclaimed artistic talents chart Aric’s path from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH for a vicious, year-long journey of bone and bloodshed born from the battlefields of a herculean alien empire:

Following the runaway success of DIVINITYWAR MOTHER, and BRITANNIA, get ready to meet an all-new kind of hero as acclaimed writer B. Clay Moore (Hawaiian Dick) and explosive artists Clayton Henry (Harbinger Wars) and Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn) present Valiant’s next major icon in a skin-shearing origin debut!

As praise continues to build for Valiant’s latest hit series, discover why critics can’t get enough of SAVAGE!

Then, out of Valiant’s reality shattering event, DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE, experience the first of four pivotal one-shots chronicling the Stalinverse’s subversive spread in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1! The history behind the reordered Valiant Universe as we know it is revealed when New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Inhumans Vs. X-Men, Bloodshot U.S.A.) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (Carnage, 4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado to eliminate a freedom-fighting terror cell charged with spreading the infection of American patriotism!

He’s put down protests, led the purge of political undesirables, and executed dozens of traitors to the Soviet super-state. His name is Komandar Bloodshot…and his existence is a hushed whisper among the terrified populace of the 21st century’s global Soviet Union. But just who is this unrelenting enforcer of state superiority… and what is the shocking truth about his power, his allegiances, and his true identity?

The will of the people have made it so: DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1 is a wide-screen epic that can’t be missed!

Valiant Marks The Biggest Release Dates of 2017 with “X-O MANOWAR WEDNESDAYS” and the X-O MANOWAR 2017 CALENDAR!

XO2017_CALENDAR_INTERIOR_ROCAFORTValiant Sets Release Date for Every Issue of X-O MANOWAR in 2017 Ahead of Launch with Retailer Promotional Calendar

Valiant is proud to announce that, beginning on March 22nd with the release of the all-new X-O MANOWAR #1, the fourth Wednesday of every month will officially be “X-O MANOWAR WEDNESDAY” – a consistent, monthly on-sale date that will include the latest issue of X-O MANOWAR alongside a brand-new launch title, jumping-on point, or key issue arriving from the best-reviewed publisher in comics! Across each and every fourth Wednesday in 2017, Valiant will now be giving fans at least two reasons to visit their local comic shop – beginning with the most important title of the year, X-O MANOWAR #1, arriving in stores on March 22nd right next to BLOODSHOT REBORN #0!

To support this unprecedented move and to reiterate Valiant’s commitment to building X-O MANOWAR’s brutal new beginning across 2017, Valiant is giving fans and retailers the tools they need to never miss an “X-O MANOWAR WEDNESDAY” with the X-O MANOWAR 2017 CALENDAR – coming free to all participating retailers in the United States, Canada, and Europe! Marking the release date to every issue of X-O MANOWAR in 2017, this one-of-a-kind calendar comes complete with reminders highlighting the Initial Order Deadline (IOD), Final Order Cut-Off (FOC), and “X-O MANOWAR WEDNESDAY” for the first year of X-O MANOWAR – the EPIC NEW ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling-writer Matt Kindt (Divinity, Ninjak, Mind MGMT) and a rotating cast of powerhouse artists, including Tomas Giorello (4001 A.D.: War Mother, Bloodshot Reborn)Doug Braithwaite (Armor Hunters, Bloodshot U.S.A.), Clayton Crain (Rai, Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), and Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn), spanning the series’ first year and beyond!

“We’ve told fans and retailers in no uncertain terms that the new X-O MANOWAR series may very well be the most vitally important series that we have ever published,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Now, we’re putting our money where our mouth is – and continuing Valiant’s record-setting streak of on-time shipping – by giving retailers a major new tool for promoting the series in their store with ‘X–O MANOWAR WEDNESDAY’ dates marked on this calendar. At the end of every month, on every fourth Wednesday in 2017, Valiant will be putting a major new release into stores for fans to rally around. And it all starts with X-O MANOWAR #1 on March 22nd. We’re extremely confident in the strength of this series with the first 13 issues already in production. Our new ‘X-O MANOWAR WEDNESDAYS’ are just the latest display of the momentum we’re putting behind this series, and just how far our plans for X-O MANOWAR stretch in 2017 and beyond.”

Packed with explosive artwork from some of the finest talents in the industry – including Lewis LaRosa (Bloodshot Reborn, Savage), Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn), J.G.

The X-O MANOWAR 2017 CALENDAR will also be available for free to all retailers attending this year’s ComicsPRO meeting in February.

A stunning new beginning for Valiant’s most enduring icon launches into comics everywhere on March 22nd with X-O MANOWAR #1 – part one of “SOLDIER,” a punishing, three-issue introduction that will push Aric of Dacia beyond the farthest limits of our galaxy…and into the brutal opening salvo of the ultimate X-O Manowar tale ever told!

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But that was a lifetime ago.

Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

In the wake of “SOLDIER”’s staggering assault in issues #1-3, X-O MANOWAR then continues in 2017 and beyond as a superstar cast of Valiant’s most acclaimed artistic talents chart Aric’s path from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH for a vicious, year-long journey of bone and bloodshed born from the battlefields of a herculean alien empire:
