Courtesy of Vault Comics we have a first look at the lettered Barbaric: Harvest Blades. Written by Michael Morici and art by Robert Wilson IV with a cover by Nathan Gooden, the one-shot is the first of many set in the Barbaric universe.
“Robert is one of those rare artists who’s able to elevate anything he touches, and what he brings to BARBARIC is such a fun and vibrant extension of Nate’s already tremendous creation,” Barbaric co-creator Micahel Moreci said. “He’s the perfect artist to be the first to carry the Barbaric baton while Nate works on the next volume–I can’t wait for people to see the blood-soaked enthusiasm he brings to Owen, Soren, and Axe!”
“I loved the first Barbaric series, so it was a real treat getting to work with Michael, Nate, Addison, and the rest of the team at Vault,” said Wilson IV. “Barbaric: The Harvest Blades is my first foray into fantasy and Michael’s script let me go wild. I’ve never drawn (or maybe even read?) a comic so packed with blood and guts and monsters and humor and heart, it was an absolute blast!”
Check out the preview below.
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.
The first of many one-shots that further explore the world of Barbaric!
