A Review: X-O MANOWAR #20

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of X-O MANOWAR #20 from Valiant Comics. The story is by Robert Venditti, layouts are by Cary Nord, finishes by Vicente Cifuentes, colors by Ulises Arrelda, and lettering by Dave Sharpe.

The team Unity believes they have beaten Aric, especially after Livewire was able to rip the X-O suit away from him. They were wrong. He still has a mental connection to the suit and uses it to attack the team. Meanwhile, Chinese, Russian and U.S. fleets are rushing to the location in the Pacific Ocean where the ship carrying the team, Aric, and his people have crashed. Livewire eventually gains control of the suit, but Aric has escape and leads his people to an escape craft in hopes to find safe haven somewhere.

Not if Toyo Harada has something to say about it.

With the beginning of Unity, Valiant has taken things up a notch. This is how you handle a comic event: breakneck action without sacrificing the story or focusing on gimmicks. And to think we’re only two months in…
