'X-O Manowar Volume 1: Soldier' by Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello follows a soldier who doesn't want to fight anymore. Will he get that chance?
Aric of Dacia was born in the time of the Roman Empire. Now he is far from that time and planet. He is known as Aric of Earth. He wants to live at peace and raise crops. He wants to never use the X-O Manowar armor ever again, but when he is captured and forced to fight against impossible odds, he might have to rethink that. He and his fellow prisoners are given impossible objectives which will surely kill them. Can Aric rise above this and survive?
I wasn't familiar with this character, but I had no problem jumping right into the story. The backstory wasn't included, but it was enough to know the character. Matt Kindt's plot is very good. Tomas Giorello's art is fantastic. I had fun reading this one.
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.
