Previously X-O Manowar
Aric thought he could make things better on Gorin. Apparently, he thought wrong. Aric of Urth ended up being the most hated man on their planet. So much so that they let Bruto the traitor contact some bounty hunters to eliminate Aric. Shanhara was captured by the bounty hunters leaving Aric alone. Even without his armor, Aric of Urth will show them there is no goth like a Visigoth! Aric has demonstrated time and again he is much more than his armor. However, once he gets pushed too far you wouldn’t want to encounter him in a dark alley or in this case trapped on a planet. If or when Aric and Shanhara get reunited I fear for that corner of the universe because when together they are the ultimate weapon.
Matt Kindt has written another chapter in this high stakes sci-fi action adventure fantasy. One of the growing lines in Valiant’s ongoing stable. He has breathed new life into the lore of this character. The likes of which haven’t seen since V1 in the 90’s and I thank him for it. I’ve inevitably been drawn to X-O as a title. Matt is my favorite scribe of this title to date and I look forward to each and every new issue he works on.
Ryan Bodenheim the new artist for this new arc has been a superb choice to join the creative team. The previous art team although I liked it was a little too dark for my taste. Ryan has brightened the texture of Gorin, and it’s landscapes. As well as Andrew Dalhouse on colors who always does a tremendous job.
All in all this issue presents wonderfully. Such a great read as always a fast-moving title with great flow from Matt, Ryan, and Andrew. This is one of the books that should be at the top of your pull list every month. If you like sci-fi, fantasy, action, and adventure this is undeniably the book for you!
