Staff Picks (September): X-O Manowar Volume 2 — General GN

Following the biggest launch in the Valiant Universe, readers were hooked as they watched Aric of Dacia battle his way through an unforgiving conflict and allow his fury to wreak havoc on the armies against him. In X-O Manowar Volume 2: General, Aric now commands the entire fleet into the final bloody battle to conquer the alien empire. But can he continue his success when his army is greeted by a new and unrelenting menace?

Creators Mark Kindt and Doug Braithwaite bring to life yet another graphically compelling and gut-wrenching story with the second volume in the new X-O Manowar series. High off the victory realized in volume one, the hatred and confidence Aric brings to the fight as he becomes a general has readers cheering, despite the rise of a new enemy clearly on the horizon. Braithwaite brings a fresh new layer of brutality and realism to the art in volume two, emphasizing the risks being taken by Aric and highlighting the consequences to occur should he lose the upcoming battle. Every page is packed with progressive story-telling and visceral art, exploring the ideas of strength, war, honor, and integrity set against the backdrop of an exciting alien war.
