Dead Hand #4: Red Earth

The line has been drawn. Dead Hand stops here. It’s do or die time. And Earth, knowingly, is at stake. Aric, along with a Cadre of other sentient armors, make a push to stop a horde of drones bent on a single mission…annihilate the armors, and reseed the world’s affected by the armors. Question is…why destroy entire planets unnecessarily?

Robert Venditti has successfully implanted that though into my head as I have been reading this series. Finally, we get to where we understand why Shanhara/Aric have such a special relationship. His willpower is greater than her own. And I think the armor likes that about him. Robert does a great job of making that apparent against the other armor wearers. And that he is now their king.

Diego’s art was mesmerizing! A planetoid that is a death dealing robot armada facing off against a small Cadre of super armor wearing individuals was exciting! And all those energy weapons! Wow!

Brian Reber, Ryan Winn, Mark Pennington, and BIT do a great job of making all this action stand out against the backdrop of space. And the colors inside the the planetoid were just as exciting!

As for the covers. I just can’t bring myself to single out just any one of them!

Overall, this was an action packed issue deserving of the X-O Manowar title. The Valiant team did a great job defending our world from impending doom. This is why more people are reading Valiant now than ever before.

Rating: 5/5

“Dead Hand Part 2: Extinction Event”

To paraphrase one of my all time favorite movie quotes, “Listen and understand. The Dead Hand is out there. They can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They do not feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until all Shanhara are dead.” Continue reading Review: X-O Manowar #35

DEAD HAND means death!

In the far reaches of deep space, the ultimate fail-safe of an extinct alien race has finally counted down to zero…and the robot army called DEAD HAND has been activated. The civilization that built them has fallen…and, now, to combat the doomsday threat that destroyed their world, DEAD HAND will complete the mission that their creators could not. Soulless and brutal, this billion strong legion is the phantom army of a dead world…and it will cleanse the universe by any means necessary. But what unthinkable menace were they created to destroy? And will DEAD HAND’s slow march across the galaxy spell death for countless worlds?

Soon, Aric of Dacia will be forced to confront the secrets that have pushed him to the terrible turning point that is DEAD HAND…and battle a single-minded killing machine unlike any he has seen before! Outmatched and vastly outnumbered, how can Aric stop something unstoppable…something that knows no fear, only eradication?

Review: Divinity #2

When to begin? Seems some time has passed since the last issue (but time is not absolute with this guy). The whole world now knows of this “Divinity”, but, at this point in time they do not know if he is friend or foe.
