About the Author:

JIM SHOOTER is an industry legend. He began his professional writing career at the age of 13, a world record, crafting some of the seminal Legion of Super Heroes stories for DC Comics. At the age of 27, he became Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics. During his nine-year tenure, he oversaw some of Marvel's most influential creations and storylines, such as Spider-Man's black costume and the creation of Venom, the X-Men's Dark Phoenix Saga, and Frank Miller's run on Wolverine and Daredevil. In 1990, he co-founded Valiant Comics, where he co-wrote and co-created some of the most popular and critically acclaimed characters since Marvel's heyday in the 1960s, including X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Shadowman, and Archer and Armstrong, among others.

BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH is one of the pioneering artists of the medium. In 1968, he began his career at Marvel Comics and famously illustrated the highly acclaimed Conan the Barbarian. He subsequently illustrated some of Marvels most popular titles, including The Avengers, Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and The X-Men, and illustrated and wrote Weapon X, the groundbreaking origin story of Wolverine. He left Marvel to become Creative Director of Valiant Comics producing what many consider his finest work. At Valiant, he designed, illustrated, and wrote Archer and Armstrong, Eternal Warrior, and X-O Manowar. He is also a noted painter, designer, illustrator, and art director for films, including Oliver Stone s The Hand. He is the founder of The Gorblimey Press and the Windsor-Smith Studio.

JOE QUESADA is one of the most famous figures in comics. Currently, he is the Editor-In-Chief of Marvel Comics and oversees the creative direction of the Marvel Universe. He began his career as a colorist for Valiant Comics before moving to DC Comics where he shot to fame co-creating Azrael, a character which famously took over the Batman mantle. In 1994, he co-founded Event Comics, which was hired by Marvel to revitalize a number of their key characters - such as Daredevil and The Punisher - under the Marvel Knights imprint, the success of which led to his promotion to Marvel s Editor-In-Chief position in 2000.

BOB LAYTON is one of comics most accomplished creators. In the late 1970s, he re-imagined Marvel s Iron Man, creating some its most seminal stories and transforming the character into one of Marvel s all-time best sellers. He created the first mini-series in comics history with Marvel s Hercules: Prince of Power and co-created DC Comics The Huntress, a character which regularly appears in the live-action Warner Bros. television series Birds of Prey. He was a co-creator of the Valiant Universe and served as its Senior Vice President and Editor-In-Chief, during which he was named Editor of the Year by Wizard Magazine. He also founded Future Comics.

Review:

Just wonderful stuff. What if Conan the Barbarian discovered Tony Stark s armor? His suit was also a killer design. One of the best concepts for a comic --Joe Quesada, Editor-In-Chief of Marvel Comics, 2000 - present

X-O Manowar is a straight-up, in-your-face, balls-to-the-wall, brutal, high energy, action comic. And holy s&@#, it is awesome. --Sequential Art Research and Literacy Organization

X-O Manowar is one of the most popular characters created in the past 15 years --Comic Book Bin
