The executioner's blade!
Sentenced to die for crimes against the empire, Aric of Dacia and his new comrade, Sabbas, have escaped the gladiatorial arena...only to find themselves in far more dire straits! Centuries before he would become X-O Manowar, can a brasher, younger Aric - sworn to combat the Romans at any cost - outwit and outmaneuver the machinations of the planet's most powerful civilization...even as death threatens him and the fate of the entire Visigoth nation?

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 1, 2018

    X-O Manowar #18 is a decent read. It opens with a cool action sequence, has a nice twist, and brings us back to the present in the ending. The art looks great thanks to the team of Hairsine and Rodriguez, and the book earns a recommendation, though I wouldnt call it a must-read. However, you can still feel free to check it out.
