X-O Manowar's Cary Nord First Valiant Exclusive Creator

Valiant Comics announced today that they've signed up their first exclusive comic creator: Eisner-winning artist Cary Nord. Nord, best known for his work on Dark Horse's Conan as well as work for DC and Marvel, will be illustrating X-O Manowar -- debuting May 2nd-- alongside New York Times best-selling author Robert Venditti.

"Cary is a tremendous talent and his work on X-O Manowar has elicited an off-the-charts response from fans and retailers. We're extraordinarily happy to have him on board for the long haul," said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons. "We're dedicated to bringing excellence with our comics month in and month out, and Cary has already proven himself to be a true visionary in designing the new direction of the Valiant Universe with X-O Manowar."

X-O Manowar #1 launches the return of the Valiant Universe; watch for further debut issues from the publisher with Harbinger #1 in June, Bloodshot #1 in July, and Archer & Armstrong #1 in August.
