    Comicosity - Heather Joy Feb 14, 2018

    All in all this book is on a level all its own, and has been masterfully designed. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Feb 15, 2018

    I’m a broken-record at this point when it comes to the fact that I feel that this comic is the most European comic that I’ve seen in a while, and that continues with this issue. The art is pitch-perfect, the writing is snappy and the short arc feels like it belongs in a European BD (the French term for comics). Couple this with a character that we continue to learn a little more about with each issue in Barbarella and some fantastic sidekicks - the mechanical horse and the little rat thing are stand out - and you get a comic that is really fun to read and just experience.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 14, 2018

    Barbarella is a book that's just full of potential and Mike Carey definitely has some good stuff going on across this opening arc. It's political and social in all the ways that the character is meant to be and it plays to its science fiction weirdness just as well. I'm hopeful for things to get even a bit more crazy in the books to come with designs, worlds, and the characters themselves because it's not limited anywhere like the film was. I really liked this arc, weird story points of vaginal removal and all, and how it just went in some bonkers directions as it toyed with religion, governments, and social order concepts. Good stuff that leaves me wanting a whole lot more – and to re-read in one sitting this arc. Read Full Review

    Infinite Earths - J.D. Jr. Feb 3, 2018

    While it follows a well trodden path, the latest issue of Barbarella is a welcome and refreshing change to a field heavily dominated by costumed crime fighters.  Read Full Review
