    This issue was a fast read, but Barb Wire #8 did not disappoint as a conclusion to this story arc. Another end to another storyline which I would recommend new readers jump in if they can. Read Full Review

    Barb Wire #8 proved to be a fitting conclusion to the series, as although the arc as a whole didn't quite captivate, this final issue made up a little allowing the series to become a worthy addition to anyone's collection. The creative team also allow for some gripping last minute character development and despite there being some questionable dialogue we were given a softer side to our titular character.

    I have to admit,when I started reviewing this series I kind of expected a different type of book, something a tad grimier a little bit more real world. After all, it does feature a bar, gang members and various bounty hunters.To have this arc includemoretechnological clichhas somewhat disappointed me. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 3, 2016

    The ability to reinvent comic characters is one of the best strengths of the industry and I'll still hold out for Barb to get another shot at it. The various relaunches have been haphazard at best and it really feels like there's no cohesive and strong plan, which is resulting in seemingly nothing sticking – when they should. Each of these characters and settings have a lot of potential but it's going to take a whole new approach to it. The team here did solid work in a technical sense with competent scripting and appealing artwork, but conceptually it just fell down before it even started because it wanted more of the same. This is a bring in folks from the outside job from here on out, perhaps a miniseries of alternate takes and re-imaginations to show the potential and let others play with it. But more of the same is not going to cut it. Read Full Review
