Review: X-O Manowar # 13

“The priest believes I am a god.  Others think me a devil.  I am neither.  I am a Visigoth.” If those words don’t entice you to pick up this comic, then you are not worthy of this medium. Aric, having lost the armor, comingles with the slave colony on the Vine’s home world.  Soon, the Vine sends a whole army to kill the armor-less hero and the priest.

Thus, the coolest scene in a while goes down as Aric faces the alien horde with nothing more than a Tarzan loin cloth and a 1980’s Mike Tyson ferocity to fight.

Grab this book and learn what it means to be pumped up by a story of bravery and courage.
