Barbaric is getting a new series at Vault Comics as Michael Moreci and Nathan Gooden bring us Barbaric: Born in Blood which launches in February.
Worried Axe is going to find out you fell behind on a few issues? Scared to admit that despite all your friends raving about Barbaric for years, you still haven’t joined in on the fun? Rejoice! For Barbaric: Born in Blood begins the next season of Owen, Axe, and Soren’s tale. Yes, that’s right! We did it…the thing everyone says they’re doing, even when they’re lying through their teeth: a genuinely good jumping on point. How, you ask? Well, it all starts with a compelling new bad guy.
Meet Orrick, the tortured barbarian now turned master torturer, who will take us deep into Owen’s past, revealing secrets that should have stayed buried…like Axe in a chest cavity slurping up that sweet, delicious blood. Will the cursed-to-do-good barbarian finally do some actual good? Probably not! But some much worse guys will almost certainly lose their heads. Yummy!
“I’m so thrilled to announce the next big arc of Barbaric,” said Gooden in a press release. “This new arc is a deep dive into the history of Owen and the Barbarian clans. Readers get to see Owen as a child and how he becomes the ruthless Barbarian we all love. Friendships and alliances are splintering while Owen pushes against his curse. New characters and a brand new adventure will dramatically expand the world!”
“This is our darkest and most brutal volume of Barbaric yet,” added Moreci in the same press release from Vault Comics. “We’re really digging deeper into these characters and what, exactly, it means to be a barbarian.”
Barbaric: Born in Blood kicks off on February 14, 2024.
