X-O Manowar Issue 44 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  This issue has a problem with some of the Vine planting characters, both stock and supporting, looking way too similar in the face. Heck the first Vine planting to be killed in this issue looks like a corpse he encounters. If it wasn't for the excellent coloring and decent line work this problem would be more memorable and major. As for the writing the summaries are definitely telling readers more than what happened previously. In fact they have recently been foreshadowing things in the last few issues. This is yet another problem. Finally the fact that Aric and Ninjak have been less than discreet in their attacks on the Vine plantings that want war is a weak plot element. I mean it would have worked better if Ninjak had worked behind the scenes while Aric got the peaceful Vine on his side. Even keeping the peaceful Vine in the loop would have been smarter.

  My verdict: Recommended even though this is not up to the quality I expect from Valiant.
