First Look: X-O MANOWAR #19 - Artist Cary Nord Returns

While UNITY is going on, X-O MANOWAR has a brand new arc featuring the return of artist Cary Nord.

On November 13th, the highly anticipated UNITY begins where X-O Manowar takes on a group of high profile characters from the Valiant Universe. Meanwhile, issue #19 of X-O MANOWAR begins with a new arc that ties into the UNITY storyline. This 32+ page issue features the return of X-O MANOWAR artist Cary Nord with series writer Robert Venditti.

Aric of Dacia has fought to reclaim the ancestral lands of the Visigoths – and he has bled for it. But nothing he has faced before can prepare him for the combined might of UNITY – and the deadly combination of Harada, Ninjak, Eternal Warrior and Livewire! To some, he is a king… To others, the ultimate threat… Now find out just how brutal, how savage, and how cunning a warrior X-O Manowar can be as he engages the world's most elite superteam head-on!

Valiant has thrown us some preview pages for the upcoming X-O MANOWAR issue featuring Cary Nord's art, whose style looks quite a bit different on this run than one fans are accustomed to. Check out the four page preview as well as a few of the covers for the upcoming issue.

I'm not a huge fan of the muted watercolor approach for this book. I think a book like this needs brightness and precision to bring the action together properly. I am admittedly more fond of photo realistic art than the painting with the post-impressionist backgrounds.

Oye I can't stand the art. It might actually put me off the book.

The Art is GREAT... I just can't really dig it for a sci-fi book.

Wow! This is a HUGE departure from the art that's been in this book, even completely different from Nord's own art in the previous issues. The coloring is obviously different as well. I've liked Garbett's art, but have always been iffy on Nord's. I actually like this quite a lot. A bit of a shocker at first though.
