X-O Manowar #2

by lucstclair on June 08, 2012

Imprisoned on the Vine’s colony ship & forced to hard labour, Aric and his cell mates, weak, on the brink of starvation & fuelled by rage attempt a desperate, but calculated jailbreak and make their destination to the alien’s armoury, which they believe is their only option for freedom. But nothing can prepare them for what they are about to find…the ultimate weapon and their salvation!


Its humans vs. aliens in a prison riot among the stars. Valiant’s X-O Manowar’s second issue is about action and survival, as Aric leads the prisoners to revolt against it’s cruel captors. Some new information on the aliens is revealed, they’re called the Vine and their crops seem to harvest their offspring which I thought was interesting. Written by Robert Venditti (The Surrogates) & illustrated by Cary Nord (Secret Invasion : X-Men) with colorist Moose Baumann paint a vibrant & stunning picture of the Vines bio-dome-like lush gardens. And a very cool cover by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic. Click here for my reviews of #1 & #3. From Valiant Comics.
