X-O Manowar #1

(W) Matt Kindt (A) Tomas Giorello

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age.
It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.
But that was a lifetime ago. Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.
But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!

Manga Highlights

(W/A/CA) Kazuto Tatsuta
The strongest earthquake in Japanese history hit the Tohoku region on March 11, 2011, and the resulting tsunami killed over 15,000 people. But, for residents of Fukushima Prefecture, the nightmare was just beginning. The world watched as the Fukushima Dai-ichi (Fukushima #1, or 1-F) nuclear plant, its safety equipment drowned by the tsunami, experienced a slow and catastrophic meltdown. Over the following years, the cleanup effort would be fraught with controversy, setbacks, and, most of all, danger for the workers who had to step inside the stricken plant, still bathed in radiation. One of those workers tells his story in Ichi-F. A singular insider’s look at an event that destroyed a region and changed how the world sees nuclear power. This matter-of-fact depiction of the daily life of a nuclear cleanup worker is unique among disaster memoirs. 1-F began as an amateur submission to the Manga Open contest.

Clockwork Planet Vol 01 GN

(W) Yuu Kamiya, Tsubaki Himana (A) Kuro

Naoto’s a high school dropout and brilliant amateur tinkerer. He lives in a world that has been so over-exploited that the entire surface has become one vast machine. When a box crashes into his home containing a female automaton, it’s a harbinger of change that will rock the entire globe, and give Naoto his chance to be a hero.
