    BARBARELLA (VOL. 2) #1 is a sincere, engaging start to the next chapter in the Hero of Love's legend. The writing is rock solid, and the art is exquisite. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 14, 2021

    It's a solid and engaging read that allows the story to be told through the visuals just as much as the dialogue. Hoyt and Musabekov have all the ingredients here for an absolutely fantastic book and this opening installment sets the table perfectly for what's to come and I'm incredibly excited.

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Jul 14, 2021

    Its too soon to tell if this series will match the quality or success of Dynamites previous volume written by Mike Carey, but theres enough potential to warrant a second look when the next issue hits, especially if youre a fan of likable characters and fun retro-space concepts. If nothing else,Barbarellais a damn fine-looking book, as is its leading lady. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Jul 16, 2021

    The style is the book is light and inspiring with violence the almost last resort for Barbarella and Taln. It's early days for the issue and it nicely skips over the more bawdy sexual side, replacing it with a wider message of love. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Jul 14, 2021

    My favourite part of the issue is the colours by Nunes . As pretty as Musabekov’s pencils are, Nunes’colouring helps bring to life Barbarella off of the page. The best part of Nunes’colours is his brilliant use of lighting throughout. A comic that has good use of lighting, will always be well received by me. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jul 15, 2021

    An interesting first issue, that looks to re-introduce Barbarella whilst simultaneously sets up her next arc. Its a big ask, which Hoyt, Musabekov and company handle very well indeed. Read Full Review

    This was surprisingly good. I love the art and the aesthetic. It’s campy and fun, and the cliffhanger is more than enough for me to pick up #2 next month.

    Barabarella busts out in an era where being a sex worker is more socially acceptable than ever before; dropping right on the heels when a clown like Meagan Thee Stallion covers a rag like S.I. It's only fitting.
    The thing is, despite Barbarella's laughable, Enchantress - esque powers, there is deep storytelling here that throws everything that previous Barabarella know into flux - capturing their interest, and giving new readers like myself who have never heard of the character the perfect place to latch on to and to fall in love with the character.
    Not being a purveyor of space comics, Barabarella hit me left field : Brian Bolland was brought into the fray for a variant, the gorgegous Musabekov art that he took from his covers more
