Barbaric returns in another one of several planned miniseries from Vault Comics. Dubbed the Year of the Axe, the next miniseries up on the chopping board is Barbaric: Wrong Kind of Righteous, by Gemmell Award-winning Fantasy author Nicholas Eames, and Barbaric co-creators Michael Moreci and Nathan Gooden
Barbaric: Wrong Kind of Righteous is a double-sized one-shot introducing Sir Borys the Righteous Paladin and his trusty, talking Flail, as he enlists the help of Owen, Axe, and Soren on his noble path. There will be virtuous bloodshed! There will be wailing protests! There will be two talking weapons! And there will be wyvern burgers served (for better or worse) with pickles!
Eames spoke up about his love for the series and his chance to work on this sword, sorcery and comedy series:
“I’ve loved Barbaric since Michael sent me an early look at the first issue. My books, he said, had been an inspiration while writing it, and when I read those pages, I felt right at home. The humour, the heart, the delightfully twisted tropes…It was so much fun. I’ve been a fan of comics my whole life and have always dreamed of writing my own, so when Michael—and Vault—offered me the opportunity to co-write something set in Barbaric’s world I jumped at the chance. It was, I think, the perfect way to try my hand at a medium I’ve always loved while learning from a writer (and editor) who I greatly admire.
When it came to pitching a story, I sent Michael the first idea that came to mind but promised to brainstorm further—except Michael loved that first idea, since it also served as a means of exploring Barbaric’s lore, especially when it comes to…Well, I suppose you’ll have to read and find out.”
Barbaric: Wrong Kind of Righteous will be out this August,with two covers available from series artist Gooden and a further variant to be revealed soon!
