    The third story arc in the XO Manowar series has both some ups and down. The overall storyline – Aric visit the Vine homework to exact vengeance, is a good one, and well done. The fact that he rescued some of his people was great, and I especially loved the interplay between him and the Vine “religious” figures that now view him as the “chosen one”. (I really hope they will return – I always like it when the “bad guys” are not shown as one dimensional). While the actual battle with the Vine homeworld seemed a little abbreviated (oddly a different impression than I got in the very extended introduction to Aric in the first TPB), the battle scenes were good, and we did seem to learn a little bit more about the XO Manowar battlesuit (although I ended up even having more questions).

    One thing that I found out of place was the 10th issue, which brought back Aric’s friend Gafti. His reintroduction seemed a little forced, and I am not sure why it was there in the first place. I also really hope that we haven’t seen the last of Alexander, the Vine/Human mix that helped Aric against Ninjak. There are a few minor quibbles (like how does Aric learn about space travel and other planets, when he still seemingly has difficulty grasping concept like the fact he has been gone for so long and the Earth has changed) but all in all, this was a very enjoyable read. I can’t wait to see what Aric does when he brings his newly freed companions back to Earth.

    More than an all-out action book I hear you ask? Well, the reaso

    More than an all-out action book I hear you ask? Well, the reason for this is that the title may lead you to believe that this will be a book mostly full of battles, action, fighting, war, shooting, and things blowing up, probably with a slice of carnage thrown in for good measure.

    But the book goes much, much deeper than that. Yes, the elements mentioned above are indeed included, but all characters, the lead, the 'goodies', the 'baddies', are very well written and a great many perspectives on the main plot point are offered which reveals the notion of 'Planet Death' to be considered as more than a simple case of revenge. And it is because of this that the resolution of this issue in the book will most likely not be what you first predicted would happen.

    Exciting and interesting plot, deep characterisation and good art makes this a very enjoyable book to read, that as well as wrapping up the TPB #1-#3 story arc nicely, progresses the story on to the next major turn of events.
