For my most recent edition of Gimmick or Good? at CBR’s Comics Should Be Good blog I reach back to one of Marvel superstar Joe Quesada’s earliest works as an artist, Valiant Comics X-O Manowar #0, an immensely successful origin issue that sports a unique, hand-painted chromium cover. The story is scripted by long-time Marvel veteran Bob Layton. Was this issue a gimmick or good? At this point, I should hope you know how to find out!
