Celebrating the 75th issue overall of X-O MANOWAR since 2012! Beyond time, space, and reality, there lies the Unknown...and now it's coming here! When soldiers from a mysterious foreign realm arrive on Earth, it's up to the armored Visigoth known as X-O Manowar - newly returned to the planet and now the leader of his own elite G.A.T.E. unit - to deal with the intrusion. But are these otherworldly emissaries truly the threat they appear to be, or does a larger danger loom over the Valiant Universe still? Worlds collide as Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY, Grass Kings) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA) bring more

    I think that this is a good beginning to this new arc and after that long flashback arc, it is good to be excited once again for where the story is taking Aric. By the look of the way that the alien weapons can disrupt the X-O Manowar armor, it looks like we may be in for some serious battles here! Read Full Review

    Kindt sets a lot up in this issue, none of which I'll reveal here in detail as it'll be much more fun for you to see why Capshaw is more than just a suit. For my money (and I will be buying this issue) this arc is shaping up to be one of the most exciting things we've seen Kindt do with the series this year. Read Full Review

    X-O Manowar #19 wasn't anything too special for the 75th issue celebration, but it was an excellent point to jump back into the action when both Aric and Capshaw seem to need this mission more than anything else going on in their lives right now. Read Full Review

    Harbinger Wars 2 is having some tremendous effects on the Valiant universe. Once again Aric of Dacia is right at the forefront of an alien attack that gives us very few clues about its purpose. Matt Kindt seems to be setting the stage for a showdown that will force XO and Capshaw to work together to find the mysterious 'lost princess.' Ryp's art is defining the Valiant universe these days. He has a couple of books hitting the stands each month, so he is creating his fair share of the mythology. Read Full Review
