In this mini-comic, the origin of Aric of Dacia and the X-O Manowar armor is unfolded in a brief story featuring Ken Clarkson. While there are no new story developments in this prequel, it does serve to introduce the new creative team for X-O Manowar showing that the Birthquake, Valiant's hiring of top-tier creative talent, means business.
