From Valiant: As HARBINGER WARS 2 rages… witness the birth of “BARBARIANS”!

Long ago, on the bloodstained battlefields of centuries past, Aric of Dacia cut a swath through the armies of the ancient world as a brash but cunning warrior – and all without the X-O Manowar armor. Now, the untold story of Aric’s swashbuckling youth – and how it unknowingly forged his fate as the defender of 21st century Earth – can finally be told as the man who would be X-O Manowar leaves the Visigoth homeland behind to infiltrate the Roman Empire’s gleaming capital from within!

New York Times best-selling author Matt Kindt (HARBINGER WARS 2, DIVINITY) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY) reunite to repel the rising tide of Roman invasion with a compelling new tale of death, fortune, and glory torn from the age of empires!
