Weekly Pull List Feature [3]

This week in comics we see an end to the mini event from Valiant that is Shadowman: End Times with issue #3 (of 3) (more to come on that in a later blog post when I review the arc) and get taken to the outer reaches of space in the latest title to cross over with Valiants' epic event ARMOR HUNTERS in X-O Manowar #26; fans of Star Wars will LOVE this issue - writer Robert Venditti continues to raise the bar with this series. X-O #26 shines a light on the origins of the Armor Hunters while also giving readers insight into a couple of very interesting characters in Primary Reebo and Malgam.

Shadowman: End Times #3 (of 3) written by Peter Milligan, art by Valentine De Landro

The curse of the shadow loa is a terrible cross to bear…and Jack Boniface is about to be crushed by it.

As an army of voodoo invisibles makes war on Shadowman, the tortured spirit inside Jack will begin to consume his soul – and force a final confrontation with his greatest enemy, Master Darque…once and for all.

X-O Manowar #26 written by Robert Venditti, art by Diego Bernard

Abducted from his own time by a vicious alien race, the courageous Visigoth warrior known as Aric of Dacia spent years in slavery among the stars before escaping with his captors’ most feared weapon – the X-O Manowar armor. Now, stranded in the modern day, the world’s most primitive man also just happens to wield its most powerful weapon. But what is the X-O Manowar armor? And who before Aric of Dacia dared to wield its incalculable power? The ARMOR HUNTERS hold the key to the armor’s untold history and – one way or another – they’ll crush anything that dares threaten their secret. (I should note, that cover art looks fantastic in print).
