X-O Manowar (2017) Volume 2: General Reviews

    Two volumes into Matt Kindt’s new “X-O Manowar” series, and I feel like I can confidently declare this to be one of my favorite series that Valiant has produced thus far, post-2012 reboot.I mean, what else is there to say about this comic that hasn’t already been said? The story is genuinely involving, striking the perfect balance between big epic set pieces with quieter character moments; the artwork (done in this arc by Doug Braithwaite) is consistently beautiful; the characters and settings are actually interesting. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this series is the fact that we’re only six issues into it: so much has happened, and we’ve watched Aric and his cast of characters evolve to such a degree, that it’s hard to believe that we’re only halfway into what’s been projected to be a 12-issue run.Next arc has Clayton Crain taking the reins on art. Matt Kindt, continuing his amazing story, with the artist of “Rai” providing the visuals?Can’t.Freaking.Wait.

    The second volume in the latest iteration of Valiant comics most well known character, XO Manowar, is seeped in conflict both on the battlefront and from within as Aric comes to terms with being little more than a tool in the eyes of a corrupt and dangerous empire. The overall tone of this series is epic with off world fantastical elements and a healthy dose of science fiction. The art is simply amazing and captures the inner and outer conflict Aric and his company deal with panel by panel.General doesn't feel as meaty as the first volume but its still packed with action and some great character moments. Collecting single issues #4-6 it is light on content but the extras in the trade paperback somewhat make up for this. Nonetheless, General reads as a complete story arc that sets up some interesting plot elements for forthcoming volumes. My rating: 4/5.

    Matt Kindt is breathing some new life into X-O Manowar. I actually really enjoyed Robert Venditti's run on the character but the series petered out and I stopped reading it. I may force myself to go back and read the final 2 or 3 volumes that I missed. I really enjoy the character and the first volume with Cary Nord was absolutely fantastic. I think the series started to lose me when X-O Manowar got caught up in the Valiant Universe with all of their other characters and story lines. That's what's so fun about this series. It takes place on a completely different planet! No need to know anything about what's going on in the rest of the Valiant line up. The first volume had one of my favorite artists, Tomas Giorello. This one has Doug Braithwaite, an artist that I appreciate but I typically find his books are quite inconsistent. I think having such short arcs brings out the best in the artist. This is some of his best work to date.I may not be reading Valiant anymore, but I'll continue to read this series as long as Matt Kindt continues to ignore the rest of Valiant. I know this is going to end soon... X-O Manowar is too important to Valiant to have him ignore their other characters for too long.

    'X-O Manowar Volume 2: General' by Matt Kindt with art by Doug Braithwaite continues the story of our reluctant hero Aric as he fights to stay alive on a strange planet.Aric still resists the pull of his armor and wears it as a ring. He fights on a planet with 3 warring races and at some point finds himself on all sides. He just wants to survive, and everything around him seems to be determined to kill him. When things get really tough, can he resist using the armor?This volume felt a bit less epic than the first one, but the art is still stunning, and I think this feels like a middle story. The first volume was a struggle to survive. This one has Aric thriving on the planet. There are political and moral issues, but it's hard to pick a side. I think this is a pretty great SF comic series though, and I look forward to whatever is next.I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Valiant Entertainment, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    I really enjoy the Valiant Universe comics. The artwork is always vivid and colourful, and the storylines are always energetic with lots of drama and battles. There is a richness to the characters of the Valiant Universe. They are always complex, sometimes vulnerable, generally brave and always up for a fight. In other words they make great comic book superheroes.It took me some time to figure out where this current series fits in the X-O Manowar world. This seems to be a completely new story arc for 2017. It has the energy, the drama and the action of the main series arc with a different world and different battles, but the armour and Aric are alive and well. If you are an XO fan then this is a must read and if you are like me and happy to dip into the Valiant Universe now and again then this is a very good read.A rugged, battling hero, conspiracies and subterfuge, a new world and the armour - all of it not to be missed.Copy provided via Netgalley in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Too short. 3 issues for a book is too little. Otherwise this completely kicks all kinds of ass

    Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Volume two of this new series picks up right where volume one left off. Aric, aka X-O Manowar, is caught up in the middle of a war between three different races on an alien planet. There is a bit of political maneuvering as each side tries to use him for their own purposes.I loved the art in this book. The very first image sets the scene of this other world and is just gorgeous. Every time the "camera" pulls back to show a wider view of the planet it is stunning. I wasn't always a huge fan of the character faces as they are drawn here, but those did not detract one bit from my enjoyment.The other thing that struck me most about this story is Aric. It delves a little into his background to give newer readers a glimpse of who he is and where he came from. But it is his relationship with the armor, Shanhara, that elevated this book for me. There is a battle of wills between them that is almost as treacherous as the war Aric is involved in and the tribes that are manipulating him.This book gives the bombastic scenes and attitudes that I would expect from an X-O title and layers it with some good character development. The volumes in this series are an issue short of what readers might expect from a trade paperback. That I balanced by a tightly written story that felt neither rushed nor dragged out.

    En este segundo arco, General, Aric descubre que la guerra a la que se ha visto obligado de participar no es tal como le han contado y que la traición viene desde más cerca de lo que cree. Además, el pasado no lo dejará en paz y, en un momento clave, tendrá que abrazarlo de nuevo ya que no tendrá otra opción.Matt Kindt sigue elaborando una historia muy sólida donde la guerra, la intriga pólitica y las conspiraciones nos hacen recordar que, a años luz de distancia de nuestro planeta, los imperios siguen actuando de la misma forma. Doug Braithwaite ha mejorado en su trabajo artístico permitiendo que no exista un contraste muy fuerte con lo realizado en el arco anterior por Tomas Giorello.

    X-O Manowar by Matt Kindt is reminiscent of Valiant Comics helmed by Jim Shooter. At a time when independent comics were taking the comic world by storm, Valiant was the thinking readers alternative to the overly glossy and shallow work that Image was producing. Bringing back characters from the early Gold Key comics, Valiant for a time surged. Storytelling is what separates this comic from the rest. The investment in characters, setting and story cannot be lauded enough. In a genre that relies far too heavily on scantily clad women and fast action, it is refreshing to read a book that actually tells a story.Another strong storyline in the continuing saga of X-O Manowar.

    BCDER: 68Another thin 3 issue volume with some bonus odds and ends. I really don't like these 3 issue arc. I know, the price is a nice $9.99, but I read collected editions so that I don't have to remember single issue to single issue and these smaller trades are nearing the problems with singles.It's a nice story with Thor, Conan, old X-O similarities. I like it and will continue to read it in the future.

    I like this volume a little less for two reasons. I really loved the propulsive simplicity of the first volume and this one starts to get into the politics of the planet instead. Doug Braithwaite's art is very stylish but I find his story telling less clear than his predecessor on this book, Tomas Giorello.

    Astonishing. A fantastic sci-fi adventure but also an interesting look at war and violence and corruption. The art is just stunning, some of the best I've ever seen in a comic book. The plot and characters only get deeper and better. I love this series.

    I liked this more the first volume as we have less setup and more Aric fighting.It does seem a little World War Hulk to me.I don't like that the ending doesn't to me align with where the next volume is going.

    Another thin X-O Manowar volume from Valiant. Decent political war drama paired with gorgeous art.

    I received an electronic ARC of this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review. To begin with, the artwork is fantastic! It really brings the alien world and species to life. The story is well written. The battle scenes work well with the artwork. The continuing survival and rapid rise of Aric through the ranks of this alien army continues. After being drafted and surviving a suicide mission in Volume 1, Aric's stock has risen--as has the animosity of his superiors. Aric's code of personal honor is tested. His loyalties are tested. His resolve to never wear the armor again is tested. I am looking forward to Volume 3.
