Valiant returned just over a week ago now and while it is a happy moment to see the company back… this reviewer wished it could have been with a better book. X-O Manowar was a gorgeously drawn book that probably will satisfy fans of decompressed storytelling. But for fans of classic Valiant or characters just dipping their toes into the Valiant Universe for the first time it may come off as a bit of a disappointment.
Why, you might wonder? Probably because you won’t see any X-O Manowar in this issue. An odd choice for a book that is supposed to launch an entire line.
