Pick of the Week – X-O Manowar #1

It’s hard not to go without X-O Manowar #1 as our “Pick of the Week.”  The buzz for the return of Valiant Comics has been building, built upon the excellent use of social media by the publisher.  X-O Manowar is their first release and really a good test to see if the wait and buzz was deserved.  I’m sure most shops will sell out of the comic, but will fans come back for the second issue and longer or is this a further example of 90’s nostalgia….

  • X-O Manowar #1 – see above
  • Mind the Gap #1 – Jim McCann’s newest series.  The man oozes talent and I can’t wait to see what he does at Image.
  • Daredevil #12 – Mark Waid has been kicking ass, there’s a reason this series is just building more and more buzz.
  • Pigs #7 – I’m in love with this Image series that blends noir and spy thrillers wrapped into a terrorist action story.  So amazing.
  • The Spider #1 – Dynamite has been mining the classics and been knocking it out of the park.  I expect no less from this first issue.
