It’s Full Of Stars

The preview pages of X-O Manowar #2 are pretty much everywhere.

They are pretty darn cool too. It shows Aric leading the rest of the Vine captives in an uprising to get free, and then a charge against their overpowering foes, in a call back to Aric’s charge against the Romans.

And of course we see the two panels that lead up to the moment we’ve been waiting for…

XO Manowar 2 Aric and the Armor

Dave Aric watches the monolith Shanhara open


“My God, It’s full of stars!”

The armor opens up for Aric, and I can only imagine that this is what he sees:

Clearly*, this X-O Manowar series is an homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey, with Aric in his X-O Armor playing the role of Dave Bowman as the Star Child.

*Replace “clearly” with “conjecture”
