Valiant has announced the Pre-Order Bundle for X-O Manowar #10-14, which is #10’s “Interlude” and then the “Visigoth” arc. #10 has painted interiors by Renato Geudes and it might be a slightly different style than you’re expecting, so scroll down and have a peak at the sample pages below.
If you’re new to the Pre-Order Bundle, the general idea is you sign up to get them with your local retailer and then you get slightly larger issues with “trade paperback style extra’s” and a variant cover for the same price.
Official PR follows and then some art:
Valiant is proud to present the X-O MANOWAR #10-14 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE – available only as a pre-order set to fans who reserve the series’ next armor-plated jumping-on point, “VISIGOTH,” with their local comic shop by the initial order date (IOD) of October 26th, 2017!
Beginning this December with a standalone prelude introducing an all-new band of intergalactic bounty hunters from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY, Mind MGMT) with spectacular painted interiors by artist Renato Guedes (DIVINITY #0) in X-O MANOWAR #10, “VISIGOTH” then begins Aric of Dacia’s all-or-nothing race across the world of Gorin as incendiary artist Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead) comes aboard in January’s X-O MANOWAR (2017) #11!
Released monthly from December 2017 through April 2018, each PRE-ORDER EDITION comes packed with trade paperback-style extras and bonus content, including creator commentary, behind-the-scenes looks at the creation of the comics, process character designs and artwork, and first looks at upcoming issues – plus exclusive covers by Renato Guedes and Ryan Bodenheim that can’t be found anywhere else!
One does not rise to power without making enemies along the way… and for X-O Manowar, the armored emperor of the planet Gorin, those enemies’ grievances have now come due. To end his reign, Aric of Dacia’s adversaries have paid a blood-fueled bounty to a ragtag assemblage of the cosmos’s most feared undesirables and cutthroat killers – alien beings whose viciousness is matched only by their greed. And their hunt starts… now.
Meet the most feared band of trackers the Valiant Universe has ever known right here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY, Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artists Renato Guedes (DIVINITY #0, Wolverine) and Ryan Bodenheim (Secret) begin the ultimate culmination of Aric of Dacia’s yearlong journey from solider to general to emperor to outcast as “VISIGOTH” takes hold!
Fans and retailers, take note: The only way to obtain the X-O MANOWAR (2017) #10-14 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE is to pre-order all five issues with your local comic shop by the initial order date of October 26th, 2017! No more copies will be made available beyond that date and subsequent issues will not be offered in later solicitations!
Available only as a pre-order set to fans who reserve the next five issues from world-building writer Matt Kindt and stunning interior artists Renato Guedes and Ryan Bodenheim, the X-O MANOWAR (2017) #10-14 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE – five 40-page, massively expanded editions of X-O Manowar’s next staggering story arc “VISIGOTH”, alongside two shocking standalone stories – can only be ordered as a set and must be ordered with your local comic shop by the initial order date of October 26th, 2017!
