REVIEW: 'X-O Manowar' #2 by Matt Kindt, Tomas Giorello, and Diego Rodriguez

★★★★★ (5/5)
It may be spring but Valiant is bringing us a red-hot summer blockbuster in 'X-O Manowar' from Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello. Issue one blew off the doors at comic shops with over 90,000 sold. That's unheard of for an independent publisher but 'X-O Manowar' is worth every bit of hype who've heard and more.
Movie studios put together these gigantic tentpole films that usually consist of over-the-top action full of explosions and elaborate stunts. Comic book readers, however, don't have to wait for the next movie to premier when 'X-O Manowar' is available right now and it's chockful of action, adventure, and gasp-inducing stunts.
Aric of Dacia has been forced into combat leading a small team to destroy Cadmium's defenses. They'll have to go through an impossible gauntlet of obstacles to get there. This epic space adventure is a cross between 'Flash Gordon,' 'Die Hard,' and 'Lord of the Rings.' It's a fa…

REVIEW: 'Red Sonja' #4 by Amy Chu and Carlos Gomez

★★★★☆ (4/5)
No Red Sonja comic book arc would be complete without a major showdown with a big baddie. The latest volume, issue 4, is no different as Red Sonja along with Max take on megalomaniac Kulan Gath. It's an all-out battle against demons with some shocking revelations along the way. 

It's the best issue so far where we get some answers and find out how and why all these people ended up in present day New York. Look away if you want to avoid spoilers now. 

Gath has joined the very elite of the Big Apple but as a powerful sorcerer, it's been accomplished with a mixture of magic and ruthless entrepreneurship. He's bide his time using his influence to amass an army of followers that have fallen under his spell. Decades passed, Gath waited and schemed until finally Sonja appeared but not alone. Max was out of his time and space too. A victim of Gath too, Max's people and culture destroyed. Sonja had been hired to protect his people but it was too late. Max was young…
