Wyvern Stormbld is on a murderous rampage, and Barb Wire is the focus of the drunken disasters fury. Barbs lost the one weapon capable of dropping the besotted behemoth, and if it cant be found among the wreckage of a shuttered steel mill, shell be laid off for good!

    Barb Wire #4 marks the end to the first story arc for the series. It really is this issue that ropes you into the series if the other issue did not already. We know who Barbara is, what kind of lifestyle she lives, what she has to do to make a living, and the crap she has to deal with on a regular basis. Read Full Review

    Barb Wire #4 is a good conclusion to the first story arc and a great setup for things to come with its relatively complex status quo. The battle between Barb and Stormblud is entertaining although Stormblud's limitations as a character shows through again. I'm more excited for what's to come due to the deal between Barb and Mace, and how that can impact her future activitiesbutthis issue doesn't delve into the current power structure too much. But overall things look good for the future of Steel Harbor. Or at least entertaining for readers. Read Full Review

    Barb Wire has the potential for it to be so much more than it is and all I can see is a series that would have been written twenty years ago and wouldn't have been any different. There's a charm to that to be sure yet the series is one that really feels like it should have been given a much more creative facelift and approach. I've enjoyed aspects of the various Comics Greatest World characters coming back to life, but all of them seem to really lack anything in terms of a serious vision in order to take it to the next level as opposed to a mild upgrade at best – and a retread at worse. I like Barb Wire because there are a lot of things you can do with the character and the location. I doubt it'll exercise it in this incarnation though. Read Full Review
