Having met the Innumerable and joined their cause against the Architects, Barbarella must clandestinely return to the home of the Architects in order to retrieve Vix, left behind when Barbarella was extracted by an agent of the Innumerable. See? We've come full circle! As is often the case, it's not what you see that's the danger, it's what you can't see, and Barbarella sees plenty of that wherever she sees an Architect. And lest we forget, there is the small matter of the Unnamable out there...

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 31, 2023

    Even with the knowledge gained from the Unnamable, Barbarella still has quite a lot to deal with. Theres still the threat of the Architects on the horizon. Thanks to her adventure in the third issue of the series, shes got a better idea of how shes going to handle the fourth. Shes learned something, and she didnt have to resort to any kind of negative energy to gain that knowledge.  Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 1, 2023

    While not quite as strong as the first two issues, and Jack still rubs me the wrong way, this series continues to be a weird and fun ride with what it's up to. All set against a crazy big backdrop of what the Architects have done and are planning to do. It continues to be interesting overall and we get some fun stuff with the way Barbarella handles the local tough guys that are guarding the place as well. At this point, there are plenty of unanswered questions and nobody is coming across well overall, well, outside of Barbarella. But I'm curious to see what'll happen next and what surprises are in store. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez May 3, 2023

    BARBARELLA: THE CENTER CANNOT HOLD #3 swerves (again) away from the heavy talk of genocide and slavery in the second issue to a roaring space adventure in issue #3. The action is thrilling, the dialog is peppy, and the plot developments are imaginative. Overall, this issue is a solid space adventure in a strangely inconsistent arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 3, 2023

    Bored over bawd is a perfect way to describe this book. Dynamite should look at the target audience for this character, raise the books rating and give the Barbarella fans a book that encapsulates their heroine, not turning her into an impotent caricature of herself. Read Full Review
