Barbaric is back and headed straight to hell in an all-new arc so big and bloody, it's getting an extra issue!
While Owen tames a dragon with an old friend, Soren and Steel cross paths with someone else from our cursed barbarian's past...who isn't looking nearly as friendly. Hell hath no fury like a woman stabbed through the heart by an ugly f***ing orc.
Oh, wait! Who's carrying Axe?

    Barbaric has been firing on all cylinders since the first installment and this new series is hitting it right out of the gate. The team has a lot of fun with great dialogue, solid pacing, and a chance to let things breathe a bit as necessary as well. Again, I'm glad that we kept Owen's story to a minimum here because I can imagine it dominating soon enough but by giving Steel and Soren a chance to stand out we get to connect with them a lot more and understand what they're going through in their effort to save him. It's a strong issue in terms of character and story and it delivers the same with fantastic artwork, detail, and just a sense of self that exudes confidence in all the right ways. Read Full Review
