The Agents of G.A.T.E. vs. the Brothers of the Bomb!
In a realm far more fantastical than our own, a Sky Goddess is missing... And in pursuit of their vanished cosmic princess and her nefarious captors, a squadron of soldiers from the Unknown have invaded our planet! As tensions run high and trust becomes scarce, can X-O Manowar and G.A.T.E. leader Colonel Capshaw band together to keep our world from becoming ensnared in a battle larger than life?  
Eisner-nominated writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY) and explosive artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA) bring Eternity to Earth as "AGENT" rages onward!

    In a comic the looks back to theDivinityandEternitystories, the reader doesn't need to have read those tales – obviously it helps you get a little more from the comic if you have, but if you haven't then don't worry about it (though personally I'd highly recommend looking them up). As you may have guessed by this shorter review,X-O Manowar #20is another solid entry in Valiant's flagship title; I can't recommend this series to you enough. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 24, 2018

    X-O Manowar #20 wasted little time jumping into that madness to ensue when the dangers of the Unknown make their way to Earth. That danger took many forms here, and all of them explosive forces that you can't wait to see clash next month. This Aric seems like one who has less tolerance than usual. That is something to fear when in most cases he is a humble warrior who will hold back. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Dan Maltbie Nov 1, 2018

    The Brotherhood of the Bomb poses a different problem to Aric and Col Capshaw. Their unique energy signature makes Aric's XO armor useless, but they are still able to be damaged by Kate's rifle. Setting the stage for a confrontation that I'm not sure our heroes will escape from. Kindt has done a great job with this storyline. It's engaging, places us in exotic locales, and for one of the few times, XO has a blaring flaw which could lead to his defeat. Read Full Review

    It's a serviceable read that will entertain most Valiant fans, but It's certainly not the best arc of the series. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Oct 24, 2018

    As an individual unit, it's not the most exciting superhero comic of the month, but what it does deliver is everything necessary to start some real fireworks with characters, concepts, and conflict all in place by the final page. Read Full Review
