Original artist of the Dark Horse Comics CONAN series, Cary Nord has been announced as the artist on the new X-O MANOWAR comic series.

More info and art at http://www.newsarama...ord-120117.html

On May 2nd, New York Times best-selling author Robert Venditti (The Surrogates, The Homeland Directive) and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord (Conan) launch X-O Manowar #1, the debut issue of the all-new Valiant Universe!

"Cary is knocking it out of the park with this book. His pages look incredible and Rob's pitch is one of the best I've ever read," said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons. "These guys are putting together a remarkable #1 issue."

Born into battle and raised under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia is a beloved figure among his men and a leader of the Visigoth people. But when he's taken prisoner after a brutal encounter with an alien strike force, he must capture the X-O Manowar armor - the most powerful weapon in the universe - if he's to save his family and return to his people. But when he arrives he finds 1,600 years have passed and the most primitive man on Earth - a man out of time - now wields a weapon capable of incalculable destruction.

i use to read the original X-O until Bart Sears start drawing it

"today the blood of battle upon my weapons will never dry
many i'll send into the ground, laughing as they die"

Same here, as long as he's read the REH Conan yarns a bit closer since his last run.

Support the Robert E. Howard Foundation. It helps you and Robert E. Howard's legacy.

pretty sweeeeeeeeeeeeet....
"I live, I BURN WITH LIFE, I love, I slay, and am content."
"Here's to brother Painbrush, we drink to his Shade..."
"All Art Is Martial"- RZA

"Our basic purist premise:
ROBERT E. HOWARD, ENTIRELY ALONE, WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM ANY OTHER PERSON, CREATED THE CHARACTER CONAN OF CIMMERIA. NO OTHER PERSON OR PERSONS SHOULD BE INTRUDING THEIR WORK INTO THE VOLUMES OF HOWARD'S CONAN STORIES.
In essence, we believe that the work of any creative artist -- writer, painter, illustrator, musician, what-have-you -- is a unique expression of an artistic point of view. It should not be appropriated or altered by others without the artist's consent. No other writer has Robert E. Howard's unique point of view, and no other writer knows what Howard would have done with his character had he lived. Upon his death, his canon, the expression of his artistic vision, became fixed. Tampering with it now is desecration."

There's a new preview of colored pages and article about a "talking" cover (you need a camera phone to make it work, but there's a preview video there) at

FYI, there several full-color and lettered pages of Cary Nord's X-O MANOWAR #1 (as well as previews of the other new Valiant titles) at
http://www.usatoday....ooks/53421880/1

It's looking good, IMO!Posted Image
Also, the latest news is that Cary is now *exclusive* with Valiant comics. So, the only barbarian comics he'll be drawing for perhaps years is Aric (X-O).

Just FYI, X-O MANOWAR #1 should be in stores right now. The reviews online are positive.

And this Saturday -- Free Comic Book Day -- there's due a free preview of it and the other titles coming from Valiant over the next few months.
