    Barb Wire #6 continues to show why Barb Wire is so good at what she does. She is thrilling for the risks she takes, and it will take a lot more than agents or supers to keep her down. Read Full Review

    Initially, I was looking forward to reading Barb Wire again, but find myself feeling a little bitnonplussed by it. Maybe it's me, but I don't see anything in the book that stands out.The industry is looking for strong female characters, but Barb Wirecan come across as clichd as a female-ized version of a male superhero, meaning that whilst she may not fit into female superhero role, she may find herself cast in a different role all together, but still stereotyped.

    As much as I like the potential of Barb I'm frustrated by the stories we do get. The focus on her past is not a bad thing since this is a new launch but it's already entered that heavily decompressed realm tied to a story that just doesn't feel engaging after two installments worth of it. Barb at this younger age isn't exactly exciting or fun to watch either since we've barely gotten to really know her in the present. Everything feels like it's something that should be done in maybe four pages of mild montage style flashback material so we can get into the story in the present, or just have more of the two mixed together. There's only so much interest to be had in watching Barb get interrogated like this since we have no idea what the real motivation is at this point. Read Full Review
