CCL #224 – X-O Manowar: Birth HC (Valiant)

This week on the show we talk about something from the What’s Old Is New Again category: X-O Manowar: Birth HC (Valiant). It’s akin to: What if Conan The Barbarian traveled to the near distant future only to find Iron Man’s armor? First released in 1995, X-O is a story about a man out of time and a man with the most powerful weapon in the universe. The initial series ran for 70 issues and Aric, our hero, actually did meet up with Tony Stark at one point. The hardcover itself is very nice that includes remastered artwork of issues 0 and 1-6, a complete cover gallery, script and pencil pages and a new story published just for this volume and it’s all done by Bob Layton, Jim Shooter, Barry Windsor-Smith and Joe Quesada.

As for the news this week, if you’ve come by the blog this week, then you’ve noticed that a few items popped up but for the most part many companies are keeping quiet until Heroes Con occurs this weekend. I also go over a couple of DC and Marvel solicits that caught my eye, including one Essential Sub-Mariner Volume 1.

All this and the New Releases of the Week.
