    Barbarella has been an influential property since my childhood thanks to the film and I am absolutely loving the current modern stories being told through Dynamite and particularly with Sarah Hoyt. I love how well the scripts work in capturing that kind of space opera feel without getting bogged down in the “how would it really work” stuff that makes other things problematic. Here, the focus is on the story and characters and everything is in service to that and it simply delights. Bogani's artwork isn't a huge shift from the previous series and artist as they bring their own style to it and it fits in wonderfully. I'm excited to see where it goes and grows from here from all involved. Read Full Review

    BARBARELLA: THE CENTER CANNOT HOLD #1 begins Barbarellas next leg of her quest to end a cataclysmic war before it starts. Hoyt brings newer readers up to speed while peppering in adventure and new developments for seasoned readers. That said, theres a lot of exposition to get through, the tone has grown dramatically campier, and the art, good as it is, doesnt match the art quality from the previous arc. Read Full Review
