G-Man’s highlights of 2017: Day 3 – X-O Manowar

I stumbled across X-O Manowar when I picked up the Free Comic Book Day release back in May and I was hooked from the first page.

It tells the story of Aric of Dacia who has always been a warrior and from those early days in The Roman Empire his path seemed set for a life of brawling and battles but an Alien abduction turned this story on it’s head for a main character that’s steeped in a rich history.  It’s grand scale sees a galaxy full of possible enemies for Aric but returning to Earth in the modern day to find peace only sees more and more need for him to fight……and that’s made all the more easy with his unique armour.  Valiant weave a sci-Fi epic into the pages of the current release and with such a high calibre of talent to back that up it’s a surprise I hadn’t read this before but discovering this now, has meant I can go back and feverishly work my way through the previous collected editions and the blend of war, home-life, humour & Galactic politics has made X-O Manowar a permanent fixture in my pull-list.

Head over to the Valiant website for more on X-O Manowar and their other titles.  Keep track of what else is happening with them over on the Facebook & Twitter pages too.
