X-O ManOwar #4

Post by nonplayer »

What did you guys think?

I liked the cover I got.
Art wasnt bad.
I was a bit confused with the story.
It was like they did the story with out Aric. Just got him at the end. No planning for his assault. No agreememnt with the guy in the boat agreeing to let aric use his robots. No explanation on how the boat giy even has tech and robots.
SPOILERS
What was this nanite thing at the end they said they encountered it before. I dont remember that.
How is it this guy has a floating orb thing. Is there two manowar armors?
Was nice not hearing the armor blab the whole time.
Where is capshaw. Where is the rest of unity, the giant robot??
This series feels choppy to me. It has very little flow it doesnt feel user friendly like Dinesh days. I dont feel invested in the story. And wtf is the add in the back I have to wait till August for issue #5 is that right?
I Miss the good old days.

the ccp is giving them just enough money to stay in print. doesnt matter if the comics are just *SQUEE*.
They have to keep the main IPs published.. This is why if another valiant movie comes out, it will be XO.
They are bleeding money at this point, they are probably bringing in like 40k a month ...
that doesn't even pay the creators and printing...let alone the other staff..
If the ccp decides to kill this they will..
Maybe try a full, full, relaunch with China always being the hero of course

I wish they'd let me license X-O for comics, novels, anything. :( I really wanted this series to buck the current trends, but it's been hard to get through.

I have the feeling Harbinger & Ninjak will be even worse.

Talking about license.....

Since DMG has been in charge, all the "Valiant"-based novellas have been removed from Amazon's Kindle. It's a pity! Just when I wanted to finally give them a try they weren't available any longer.

Yeah, this happened awhile ago. I wrote half of one and then realized they'd taken down the program. Bummer!
