Word on the street is that X-O Manowar #1 is not just the first appearance of Aric, it has a guest appearance by another well-known Valiant Comics character.
Want to know who it is?
Seriously, it’s not a huge spoiler, but it is a tiny one.
Once you see it, it can’t be unseen.
Ok, here it is…
Just a bit…
Last chance to back out…
Gilad, the Eternal Warrior appears in the first issue, as one of King Alaric’s advisors/soldiers.
How do we know this is him?
Dinesh, Valiant Comic’s Chief Creative Officer, confirmed that Eternal Warrior appears in the issue.
Next, check out the Eternal Warrior image from the FCBD issue. Big scars on Eternal Warrior. Just like this guy.
So, I was wrong. I was hoping that Gilad was the guy that gets decapitated by Aric after he spears Aric’s father.
Instead, he gets speared by a Roman.
The question in my mind, will Aric and the Eternal Warrior have known each other, and will they recognize each other in the present day?
This sort of guest appearance is definitely a very “Valiant” sort of thing to do.
