Review: Unity #20

A lot of things have come to light in this issue. The War-Monger is a @$$! Causing wars and stuff! I believe we have found our “Savage”. She, in my opinion, the female version of Harada. She’s been everywhere but nowhere. Within these last few issues, she’s become one of my favorite bad guys in comics.

Broken Angels 2: Go Down Fighting

It’s all hands on deck, leviathan is under attack! P.R.S. doesn’t know what to do as they are being attacked on multiple fronts. Harada, being as presumptuous as he is, underestimated P.R.S. Not many things catch Harada off guard, P.R.S. was one of them, the other…well…you’ll have to pick up the book.

Valiant Entertainment proudly presents…

The wedding of…X-O Manowar

This issue…was a heartfelt closure in more ways than one. This would be a great jumping on issue for the new readers. It closed a chapter in Aric’s life, but opened another for the both of them. There are, however, seeds of dissent that will come to light in the near future.

Ever since she appeared in our favorite ninja’s life, Roku has been something of an enigma. Her actions and demeanor seemed to be shadowing something deeper. Something harsh. From her first onset, she has captured readers attention, forcing us to contemplate who this woman, where did she come from, and why is she here. Just like our favorite ninja is thinking.

Review: Bloodshot Reborn #3

Bloodshot Reborn #3 (Valiant)

STORY : Jeff Lemire

ART : Mico Suayan

The man formerly known as Bloodshot was no more. He was human again, a parting gift from Kay, a Geomancer he was protecting and the woman he loved. She did it to give him a chance at being human again, at having a life.

With the knowledge of what he’s done, and what the newest nanite bearers did with the nanites, we see “Ray” at a point where he needs to make a decision. Stay where he is, or do what needs to be done.

“Bros”

Every year I go to my families family reunion. I go knowing that I’m probably gonna run into those of the family that I’d rather not. That and the usual sibling / cousin shenanigans ensue. So, with this in mind, I can see why the Anni-Padda brothers prefer to live separate lives. Now, put the all in a confined space, IN space, only hilarity can ensue.

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.
