Make room for a new fantasy barbarian with a killer instinct and a desire to chug mead post-slaying. Hitting stores on June 30, Barbaric is a new series from Michael Moreci and Nathan Gooden, with colors by Addison Duke, letters by Jim Campbell, and design by Tim Daniel. The title has already gone back for a second printing before it even released, proving that people are hungry for some epic sword and sorcery tales from an indie publisher like Vault Comics.
So, just what makes a killer fantasy comic with lots of gore and swordplay actually work? I was lucky enough to ask Moreci about the creation of Barbaric, his approach to gory fight scenes, and the importance of a lawless world in fantasy storytelling, among other tidbits.
