    I'm extremely glad I got a chance to review this issue and to catch up on this series, it just proves that with the right writer and talent, even a character you don't connect well with, can make a fantastic series. I plan on continuing to read and enjoy this series as it goes along, I hope Hopeless stays on for the foreseeable future, and I can't wait to see where this series go! I highly recommend checking this issue out, even if you haven't been a huge Manowar fan in the past. Read Full Review

    X-O Manowar #6 unleashes a most gripping plot twist. This new direction is so well developed and foreshadowed, the reader feels like they're in on the plot. Read Full Review

    X-O Manowar #6 throws our hero into a rare situation where he's not in full control and nobody knows what is really going on. The creative team is doing a good job establishing a dilemma for a hero who relies heavily on his suit and throwing him up against a weird sci-fi dilemma. It's an issue that feels like it blends Iron Man and Swamp Thing in its technological sci-fi weirdness. Read Full Review

    This book really still doesn't have a clear-cut antagonist yet, it's just an ancient viking warrior fighting with his alien suit. Luckily for fans of the character, that's often when he's at his best. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, despite the hiccup/s in the book, X-O Manowar #6 is still a solid read. It's not going to be a definitive X-O Manowar story that will be recommended above all others (at least from what I can tell so far), but it's a story that I'm enjoying nonetheless. I'm still hopeful that the comic will reach new highs, just as I'm hoping that the tech billionaire will soon be a memory – that I've got a genuine dislike of the character is a testament to the writing; because when Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum is good, he's really good.

    X-O MANOWAR #6 is a story that has a lot of potential, but the writing doesnt put in the work to craft a story thats believable or makes sense. It presumes the reader is as willing to ignore key happenings just as much as the oblivious characters in the comic. Thats a shame when you consider the work the art team is putting in to produce a visually engaging comic. Read Full Review
