Can you order from Larry's comics online? I appreciate the nostalgia of the Layton homage.

Their XO exclusive has yet to be listed though. It's limited to 500 copies.

I didn't know it was a homage cover as I'm not very familiar with Marvel comics. Now I like it even more. :thumb:

It's a take on the "Demon in a Bottle" cover from Iron Man.

I am probably beating a dead horse here, but just in case someone here has not heard this already:

Our variant (both color and b/w) is different from the rest, because it's not just an exclusive cover. Our books will have 8 pages of EXCLUSIVE (non-story) Editorial Materials, only available in our edition. I wrote an essay for it, explaining my love for the character, and there is a bunch of other really cool stuff. This has never been done before, for a retailer variant. It's freakin' THICK!

Nice! I didn't know the original cover was drawn by Bob Layton as well, not to mention that he had drawn more than 100 issues of Iron Man.

I don't remember where I found the image of Larry's exclusive (google?) but I didn't get it from Bleeding Cool. They posted a slightly different version of the homage cover with Larry's logo right on the whisky bottle.

Image

:clap:

@possumgrease: Check out what the owner of Larry's Comics told Bleeding Cool:

Quote:
I’m not going to sell my shops “Visigoth in a Bottle” X-O #1 cover, I’m going to give it away FREE with the purchase or donation of a Valiant TPB or HC. I want to use the variant to spread the good word of Valiant. I generally think that the entire line is under most fans radar, it’s so good, so high concept.

Swing by the shop. Buy a Valiant TPB for yourself & get a FREE rare comic. Keep the TPB for yourself & read what I consider to be the finest, wholly unique, Independent Super-Hero mythology being published today. Or if you already have all the trades, consider spreading Valiant love & donate it to a school, library or club.

It’s my goal to donate a complete set of Valiant graphic novels to the Lowell Pollard Memorial Library to let everyone in my home town know the splendor that is Valiant. I’ll do mail order on these if you donate a TPB to the cause. $25 delivered to USA, paypal: comicsondabay@aol.com

There is also a variant to the Retailer Edition. Instead of it being ComicsPro, it has an Emerald City CC logo. It was distributed at the Diamond luncheon in Seattle.

Is it me, or does the sexiest one of the entire bunch look like that Humble Bundle book? I don't know if that is the actual cover (anyone go that route?), the one without the X-O Manowar logo on top, but MAN!


That's a special kind of sexy!

The logo is cool. I like it. My two favorites are the Pre-Order and Mega City One by Giorello.

The title blocking more than a third of the cover is disappointing.
I didn't even choose a cover this time as all of them bugged me. I'm just happy xo is back.
