Valiant Entertainment has provided CBR with an exclusive first look at “X-O Manowar” interior artist Cary Nord’s pages for “X-O Manowar” #11 and Marco Djurdjevic’s cover for “X-O Manowar” #12, both part of writer Robert Venditti’s upcoming “Planet Death” storyline that sees Aric of Dacia waging war on the entire planet of the Vine alien race.
“The idea was with the Roman empire being gone now that Aric’s in the modern day, he still has the urge to sack something,” Venditti told CBR in October. “He’s going to go to the homeworld of the Vine, the race that kidnapped him, and it’s sort of an invasion story but inverted on its head. Instead of the aliens coming in and invading Earth, Aric’s going to go and be a one-man invasion and goes in and sacks the Rome of the Vine culture, which is their homeworld called Loam.”
