Preview - X-O Manowar #5

If the aliens on the Vine ship aren't even a match for Aric and the armor, is there anyone that is? Ninjak is and he makes his bloody debut in X-O Manowar #5.

Written by Robert Venditti and illustrated by Lee Garbet (covers by Mico Suayan, Philip Tan and Patrick Zircher), the fifth issue kicks off an extraterrestrial arms race. After a failed brute force attempt on the life of Aric of Dacia, Vine agents deep within MI6 have only one option left in their gambit to retrieve the X-O Manowar armor – call in the deadly mercenary known as Ninjak.

But what happens when the world's foremost weapons specialist engages the Earth's most powerful weapon head on? And even if Ninjak can defeat the armor's defenses, does he stand a chance against the savage warrior that controls it?

The issue hits stores September 12 with interiors below.
