    Barb Wire #2is an explosive follow up issue full of intense action and entertaining character development. The way Barb's routine bounties are connected to her eventual plan to go after Stormblud feels like a natural and necessary development. And the impact on the power structure and current events taking place in Steel Harbor can't be underestimated. And, of course, the action is terrific with the artwork making it extremely enjoyable. I'm getting hooked to this series and all it has to offer. Read Full Review

    Barb Wire #2 continues with some solid artwork as we explore the thrilling life of Barbara. She is always on the move trying to get the money to keep the bar open. One bounty after the other and those are the exciting parts considering how good she is at that part of her life. Intense yet humorous seeing Barb Wire take on guys twice her size and constantly have to yell for these two others to lend a hand despite the fact that they are also twice her size to be doing nothing. With that said, her expressions are something to note because you constantly see how stressed she is a majority of the time. Sometimes you do want to see her crack a smile, though Barbara doesn't quite have that luxury as captured properly throughout. In general the street-level style of Barb Wire keeps things fresh as we see different parts of Steel Harbor. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 5, 2015

    Barb Wire is pretty much playing by the book here and it does it well enough. I'm holding out hope that there's an interesting twist to it coming up, but I'm also kind of hoping for there to be something inspiring as well when it comes to trying to save the city. The focus on Barb through the camera crew, her bar and just the general bounty hunting job works to show the kind of rough life she has and what she has to do to make ends meet, but it's got a kind of superficial feeling about it. The action sequences are fun here and I like the way that things work with Mace and Hunter. Part of it reminds me of Ostrander's old Grimjack book with the bar, which hers could become with some simple nudges in a lot of ways. And that could make things a lot more interesting as a focal point rather than a struggling bar. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Pablo Arriaga Aug 5, 2015

    Barb Wire #2 is a good issue that suffers from the failures of the first. If you're wondering if you should give this series a shot, starting with this comic helps the series a lot more than going back to reading issue #1. Read Full Review
