    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jake Palermo Jan 21, 2021

    X-O Manowar #4 takes the time to empathize and communicate with its readers to the point where the reader feels like they play an important part of the story.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 28, 2021

    After speaking to Hopeless himself and reading this issue I'm 100% on board for more X-O Manowar. The third and fourth issues have done an exceptional job to raise up the narrative, the stakes, and the complexity of this character. There are dynamics in play that are intriguing and add so much potential to this superhero seeking public approval. Read Full Review

    When the pandemic hit last spring, I remember purchasing X-O Manowar #1 for no better reason than I was desperate for something to read while new comics were on hold. It was not the greatest book on the racks, but it wasn’t the worst either. As the virus continued to mandate shut-downs and played havoc with the comic book publishing schedule, I continued to read the series mainly because, again… it wasn’t terrible. I’ve never felt like the series was the best superhero book on the market, or even the best version of X-O Manowar to hit store shelves, but it’s entertaining enough to keep me from becoming disinterested, and that’s more than I can say about the majority of comic books being published today.
