Since Valiant’s new X-O Manowar series began earlier this year, Aric of Dacia has been famously separated from his powerful suit of armor. While pieces of it have returned throughout the series, today’s X-O Manowar #6 from Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite brings the armor back in all of its glory…with an all-new look to boot.
As the war on the planet Gorin gets more dangerous, Aric realizes he might need a little extra firepower. Using his bond with the armor, he summons it to him from half a planet away.
But when the armor closes around him, we notice that something seems a bit different this time around…
Leading to a brand-new look for X-O Manowar, one that harkens by back to his barbarian roots… But with incoming artist Clayton Crain taking over from Doug Braithwaite for next month’s “Emperor” story arc, something tells us this transformation is far over.
You know, he could have gone for Darth Vader’s other look…
X-O Manowar #6 is on sale today from Valiant Entertainment.
