X-O Manowar Pre-Orders At 42,000


1568 Better grab a copy of X-O Manowar #1 while you can.

Bleeding Cool reports that pre-orders for Valiant Entertainment's big debut of X-O Manowar is currently at 42,000 with there being a wide margin of orders per store.

Seems some stores have ordered in the hundreds of copies and some in the single digits.

Remember the 90s trying to find these things?!

We already have an advanced review of X-O Manowar #1 up with our own Chris "DOC" Bushley offering, "For fans of the original series, you will feel right at home with Venditti's rendering of Aric and the situations that befall him in order to finally become one with the X-O armor. For those of you that are coming aboard with a fresh set of eyes, you will be astounded by how Venditti has created a character that is so rich and fleshed out in a single issue. He takes a character that is steeped in arch-types and makes him exceed them all, giving us the perfect new icon to usher in the new era of Valiant!"

I'm definitely looking forward to what Valiant has to offer — DC and Marvel need a swift kick in the keister!

X-O Manowar #1 goes on sale Wednesday May 2nd, 2012. And look for the FCBD issue May 5th!
