X-O Manowar issue 1 Mini-Review of the 2012 series
Valiant definitely has me anticipating their books after reading X-O Manowar # 1, which is in stores and on comixology now. The art by Cary Nord is top quality and worth half the cover price of 3.99. The breathtaking detail in the opening action scenes, featuring legions of Visgoths and Roman soldiers, is always in proportion. As for the writing I feel it is intelligent and from what little I know about the Visgoths and the ancient Roman empire is historically accurate. Well at least until the Aliens start to appear and begin snatching people up. This is a first issue people should check-out as soon as possible versus later in life.
