I have to say “nice try” to Van Lente. He took several of the most important scenes from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, captured some of the intensity, but none of the significance.
After reading just the first issue, I am convinced that current rendition of X-O Manowar will be celebrated by casual fans and comic book enthusiasts alike for years to come. In every way, X-O Manowar #1 is a living, breathing, stunning work of modern fiction which takes hold of its reader and refuses to let go until it’s finished.
The larger story of global catastrophe and a mysterious cabal is intriguing if not exactly groundbreaking and I’m not against the humanizing effect of a love story, but the way that Lemire has presented the story, he needs to start paying off in action sooner rather than later.
