    Once again Valiant, Venditti, Bernard and crew impress. X-O Manowar has been the crown jewel of Valiant since it burst back on the scene and this is just another example of why. Stellar back story for some really interesting characters that, in all honesty, I hope get to stick around after this event is all said and done. Bravo. Read Full Review

    The final issue of this arc wraps-up perfectly. Readers catch the Armor Hunters story and how it connects back to Aric. It's a cut and dry, simple story that adds an immense amount of depth to the book. Sure, Aric hasn't been in this book for a few months, but it doesn't matter because these past few issues were done so dang well. Now, fans can only wait and see how the rest of this event plays out and what the future holds for Aric and Earth. Read Full Review

    Yet another great Armor Hunters tie-in that expands on the villains of the series nicely. And finally Malgam has become much more interesting! Read Full Review

    X-O Manowar #28 is an entertaining issue that gives critical answers regarding the Armor Hunters and what created the situation prior to their visit to Earth, but raises some equally important questions about their portrayal in the main series. Reebo's brutal action in ordering the destruction of Mexico City stands in stark contrast to the actions he takes here but it seems as if that will be answered next issue. At least I'm hopeful of that. However this issue did addmore nuance to the characters and showed what they believed in. In addition to making me look forward to the next issue and anticipating the crucial answer it'll contain, I'm also more intrigued by the Armor Hunters as a whole, and even the fate of Control. So in that regard, this issue succeeds. Read Full Review

    Some depth has been given to the Armor Hunters through X-O Manowar, and particularly X-O Manowar #28. Though it's hard not to feel like there is a bit you might want out of this. Of course this origin tale is far from over, though you can't help but feel that the Armor Hunter's story is at their best when they are in conflict with Earth. That might change, but we'll have to see with issue #29. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Tyrone Selby Sep 2, 2014

    The downside for me? It was hard getting caught up with the lingo, and the characters seemed slightly one dimensional"but that's getting nit-picky. I must admit, I'm looking forward to reading what happens next! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Aug 27, 2014

    The book's only flaw, which is nothing more than my personal gripe, is that Aric's absence weighs heavily. Otherwise, this is a superb action story. Read Full Review
