‘Who The True Monsters Are’ – This Week’s X-O Manowar #9 Wraps Up ‘Emperor’ Arc

by Hannah Means Shannon

This is the week for another issue of X-O Manowar, witnessing the rise and rise of Aric of Dacia on an alien planet where he tried to avoid a conflict-driven life. But having failed in that, he’s also perhaps in for a fall.
Written by Matt Kindt, with art by Clayton Crain, and covers by Lewis Larosa, Adam Pollina, Juan Jose Ryp, and Darick Robertson, issue #9 finds Aric made Emperor of the world of Gorin, and he’s now a feared ruler. But does he have too much power, and can he control himself, and the X-O suit? This final chapter of the “Emperor” storyline will answer some dramatic questions about Aric’s trajectory.

Here’s a close look at the interior art on this week’s intense issue:
