BARBARIC follows Owen the Barbarian who 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. Welcome to the skull-cracking, blood-splattering, mayhem-loving comic brave enough to ask: How can a man sworn to do good do so much violence? Hah! F***ing with you. It’s just…BARBARIC.

AXE, co-star of BARBARIC (Owen’s sentient, blood-drunk axe) slurred his way through a statement about his upcoming role in the book. “Look, maybe I am a bloodthirsty axe with a drinking problem, but I still know an epic, kick-ass story when I see one. Granted, I happen to be the star of this particular tale (never mind that barbarian oaf), but that doesn’t change the fact that BARBARIC has got it all: action, a sweet f***ing axe, mystery, magic, an awesome AXE, and other non-axe related stuff. So come for the axe and stay for the axe. You don’t want to get me mad, do you?” 

BARBARIC, to me, is a series that wraps both its arms around the comics medium–it’s big, from the get-go, in ways only comics can be,” said Moreci about BARBARIC. “I want this to be a huge story that continues on the way Hellboy does, and I want it to feel like that kind of epic. It’s my ode to pulp adventures, and immersive world-building, and larger-than-life characters. I feel so energized writing it, and I hope, between my scripts and Nate’s insanely amazing art, that energy comes off of every page.”

“2020 was a very difficult year for me and my family; as it was for everyone around the world,” added Gooden. “BARBARIC was my escape. I got to work with one of my genuine friends in the industry and make a book that is just , dare I say, fun. There is humor, there is action, there is tons of adventure, but most importantly,  there is heart. Come enjoy the ride as we continue to grow these characters across a fantastic landscape.”

BARBARIC #1 will hit store shelves in June 2021 and will debut with a special Vault Vintage cover from Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel that pays homage to Barry Windsor-Smith’s epic cover to Conan The Barbarian #1 (1970).
