I’m so glad to be back in the world of Barbaric. All these volumes run into each other building up an epic story that doesn’t skimp on the characters at the heart of it.

It’s just developing so well and in a way that has me hooked completely. I am impatient for more. Owen is in real trouble. Axe has a new status quo. Soren too and Steel has much to come to terms with. It’s also very clearly not over yet. I can’t wait to see what the hell is in store next.

You feel there’s victory in the air and that’s good.”
“Thematically there’s some interesting ideas in The Last Book You’ll Ever Read #1, and while that’s something I’m very much interested in, I don’t necessarily think this issue is a very good setup for the story to come.”
