As HARBINGER WARS 2 rages...witness the birth of "BARBARIANS"!

Long ago, on the bloodstained battlefields of centuries past, Aric of Dacia cut a swath through the armies of the ancient world as a brash but cunning warrior - and all without the X-O Manowar armor. Now, the untold story of Aric's swashbuckling youth - and how it unknowingly forged his fate as the defender of 21st century Earth - can finally be told as the man who would be X-O Manowar leaves the Visigoth homeland behind to infiltrate the Roman Empire's gleaming capital from within!

    The tale of Aric's history, prior to wearing the legendary X-O Armor, continues to grow. This book is preparing him for what must be done in the current crossover, Harbinger Wars, going on right now! This is a brilliant book to read, but the question that I'm starting to ask is, when are we going to see Aric back in his armor? This book will remain in my subscription box though to find out!

    X-O Manowar #16 is a vast improvement on the previous issue. Its still not he kind of story I look for from this series, and it does still resemble a holding pattern while Harbinger Wars II goes on. That said, it was still an engaging comic worthy of a recommendation for those interested in Valiants offerings. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    This isn't a good jumping on point. The art by Trevor Hairsine and inks by Brian Thies looks great but the story is just not happening right now. Hopefully, this arc will end soon and something more interesting will take place in the next arc. Read Full Review
