This winter, Valiant presents its next essential zero issue…revealing the never-before-told origin of X-O MANOWAR’s unrelenting arch-enemy!
Valiant is proud to announce X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRILL #0 – a special jumping-on point for Valiant’s flagship series from New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR) and rising star Francis Portela (Green Lantern)! This December, return to the roots of the Vine’s brutal alien empire to discover the beginnings of X-O Manowar’s dark nemesis and one of the Valiant Universe’s most formidable villains – the cold and calculating Commander Trill!
From Aric of Dacia’s escape with the X-O Manowar armor to the destruction of his own home world, pain and consequence have haunted the life of the alien general called Commander Trill. Now, on the eve of the most devastating assault yet, find out why with an essential, standalone zero issue detailing the battle-scarred life and origin of the Vine’s mightiest military leader…and an all-new prelude to X-O Manowar’s most terrifying clash of the year!
“Since the very first issue, Commander Trill has been a central piece of the X-O MANOWAR mythology and now, for the very first time, we’re going to see just how deep his influence truly runs,” said series editor Tom Brennan. “From Master Darque to Toyo Harada to the Immortal Enemy, Valiant’s antagonists are just as compelling as its heroes. Trill is no exception and his long-awaited origin story will not only reveal a tale that Robert Venditti has been building towards for years, but will also pave the way for the epic shake-ups leading into X-O MANOWAR’s milestone 50th issue in the new year.”
Featuring covers by blockbuster artists Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), and David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), be here this December as Robert Venditti and Francis Portela chronicle the beginning of Commander Trill’s shattered destiny with an all-new one-shot introduction to the many worlds – and many foes – of Valiant’s most powerful hero, only in X-O MANOWAR: COMMANDER TRILL #0!
