Matt Kindt and Juan José Ryp Unleash a New Arc in X-O MANOWAR #19

 Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce an explosive new story arc for the publisher’s critically acclaimed X-O MANOWAR series: “AGENT,” starting with X-O MANOWAR (2017) #19! Beginning on September 26th, Eisner-nominated writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA) install Aric of Dacia as an operative of the Global Agency for Threat Excision to face off against a fantastic new world of gods, myths, and heroes!


Featuring the return of characters from ETERNITY, the seminal experiment in cosmic storytelling, X-O MANOWAR #19 will bring two of Valiant’s most beloved science fiction epics together for the ultimate meeting of space-faring warriors!

“After the events in ETERNITY, Divinity came back to Earth and everything reset to a degree,” writer Matt Kindt told Comics Bulletin. “Except Divinity brought some problems back with him...or, more accurately, some problems followed Divinity back home to Earth. We kind of teased this a little bit at the end of ETERNITY but how it manifests itself is going to be pretty nuts. We’re bringing the cosmic to Earth!”

Beyond time, space, and reality, there lies the Unknown…and now it’s coming here! When soldiers from a mysterious foreign realm arrive on Earth, it’s up to the armored Visigoth known as X-O Manowar – newly returned to the planet and now the leader of his own elite G.A.T.E. unit – to deal with the intrusion. But are these otherworldly emissaries truly the threat they appear to be, or does a larger danger loom over the Valiant Universe still?


On September 26th, worlds collide as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Grass Kings) and dazzling artist Juan José Ryp (NINJA-K) bring a new plane of existence crashing down upon our own in a brand-new jumping-on point for 2017’s best-selling series – featuring covers by Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Alan Quah (Orphan Black), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), and Renato Guedes (Wolverine)!
