The return of Valiant Comics is off to a fantastic start, showing that they are serious contenders in the semi-indie publishing market. They were once the biggest name in comics, they disappeared, and now they’re back in action. X-O Manowar pits technologically advanced aliens up against puny humans in an all out battle for survival. The first issue was a tremendous launching point. You can take a look at the preview for issue #2 below.
