    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Aug 1, 2017

    I loved this book on all levels. We couldn't ask for a better team to guide this book. The journey we have started here is a fresh take on the X-O Manowar mythology, and has captured this reader. I feel like Aric has been fleshed out as a damaged character that really has added a new dimension to the classic Valiant character. This is the best the new Valiant can do for the readers, making great comics. I can't wait to continue the journey next month. A great series that is a must buy. Read Full Review

    X-O MANOWAR #5 is another outstanding installment in this series that makes the X-O Manowar armor an interesting character in its own right. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Aug 2, 2017

    X-O Manowar does a fine job of balancing world building with action and character development, along with some pretty heady themes. It's a comic that doesn't waste a panel or a word and moves along like a well-oiled machine. And standing in the middle of it all is Aric"tormented, talented, and willfully ignorant of his true nature. In case you hadn't figured it out, this is a darn fine comic. Read Full Review

    This new X-O Manowar series is fantastic, and so far for five issues straight one of the best series in comics right now. Matt Kindt is a genius writer and Doug Braithwaite is a superb artist. That makes X-O Manowar # 5 earn a 10 out of 10. Read Full Review

    Hopefully by now, I've intrigued you enough to want to go out and pick up this book. If so, awesome. If not, hey, that's ok. I'm just glad you took the time to read my article, so thank you. Since the beginning, I have loved this fast pace story, all of it's action/artistry. It's not only a solid book, but it's a solid story. Enjoy! Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Oral Frier Jul 26, 2017

    X-O is probably one of the best sci-fi books out there. Honestly, it is probably the best sword and sorcery-esque (you know what I mean) book to come out in ages. It is an absolute must read, and this issue remains no different. Read Full Review
