    The series has not disappointed since its debut in March. This sixth issue continues the strong output that has been provided thus far. I challenge anyone to find a stronger, better written ongoing series today. This is truly a must read for any fan of hero or fantasy comics. Read Full Review

    Much as the first Ultimate Spider-Man story arc took several issues to build to Uncle Ben's inevitable death, X-O Manowar has been taking its sweet time to arrive at the reunion between Aric and his alien suit. That methodical build-up only adds to the book's gravity and emotional weight. But crucially, as methodical as Matt Kindt is being in this area, he's blazing forward in terms of the larger narrative.

    Ultimately, if you want to get your hands on a wonderfully illustrated character driven story then you could do a lot worse than X-O Manowar. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Jeremias De Leon Aug 21, 2017

    This issue slows things down which is understandable. It does feel like it's slowed down too much. It could have been a little faster paced, just a little bit. There's very little action but what is there is well done. It's a decent issue though, and promises some big things happening in future issues. X-O Manowar # 6 a 8.5 out of 10. Read Full Review

    This a book that never disappoints. It gives the reader just enough mystery to keep us coming back for me. It doesn't feel like a gimmick but an authentic progression of a story. A story that I will continue to relish. Read Full Review

    X-O Manowar #6 is a fun issue, but the cracks in the armor are starting to show. The story is too recursive, the supporting characters thinner than the paper they're printed on, and a key element of the art was very confusing. I'll be back of issue seven, though, and with any luck, these problems will be sorted by then. Dr. J gives this a" Read Full Review
