Book Review: Barbaric: The Harvest Blades – Michael Moreci (writer), Robert Wilson IV (Artist), Addison Duke (Colourist) & Jim Campbell (Letterer)


Today I am reviewing Barabaric: The Harvest Blades a new one-shot comic in the Barbaric series by Michael Moreci that is out from Vault Comics on the 13th July. I love the main series and was over the moon to be able to grab an arc of this one.

Disclaimer – I received a copy in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts are my own.

Like a punch in the privates, BARBARIC is back! Bloodier and more irreverent than ever. In this one-shot, Owen, the barbarian cursed to do good, is forced out of hiding and back to his old B.S.! A whole bunch of violence, ethically approved, of course, by his moral compass, the talking Axe! Find out for yourself why Entertainment Weekly, Thrillist, Screen Rant, and a whole bunch of other people called BARBARIC one of the best comics of 2021.

Comics Wednesday: Barbaric #1 – Michael Moreci (Writer), Nathan Gooden (Illustrator)


Welcome to another new – well rather, a revamped feature on the blog – Comics Wednesdays. To kick this feature off, I’m taking a look at Barbaric #1. This is an indie comic from Vault Comics, and I took one look at the cover and knew that I needed to read it.

Owen the Barbarian has been cursed to do good with what remains of his life. His bloodthirsty weapon, Axe, has become his moral compass with a drinking problem. Together they wander the realm, foredoomed to help any who seek assistance. But there is one thing Owen hates more than a life with rules: Witches.
