    This was a good slow down issue. Recap some of the more recent event in Aric's life, while preparing for the Harbinger Wars II event. The story telling was phenomenal, and the artwork was top-notch. I would even go as far to say this issue would be a great jumping on point for non Valiant readers to pick up on. Read Full Review

    A comic that is worth reading for new and established fans alike, this is an example of Valiant having so much to offer. Read Full Review

    It has an irresistible story that uncovers more of the main character's past and builds on their currently evolving state at the same time. Make sure you pick it up. Read Full Review

    It's kind of a let down from the strong arc of the first year on the title and that story's epilogue, but I'm still curious to see where it leads. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 28, 2018

    X-O Manowar #15 has great artwork, but the story is underwhelming. It may improve, but this was a fairly conventional start to the arc. Jumping back in time to a fairly well-documented and oft-written isnt an exciting premise, thought here is promise for an interesting racial allegory between the Romans and Visigoths. I cant say this issue is bad, but I cant quite recommend it either. Read Full Review
