"Unity, Corps, God, Country, Part One" continues in X-O Manowar (1992) #25
While the cover notes 1993 and FEB, the indicia reads January, 1994. X-O #25 was a February, 1994 title and thus it is believed the accurate cover date is February, 1994 (a combination of the cover and indicia dates).
The Valiant Gold Covers were given out to retailers and fans as a "thank you" for various contests and as giveaways at conventions. While publisher Fred Pierce confirmed that each gold edition had a print run of 5,000 copies, it's unclear how many were actually distributed.
