Greetings True Believers! I picked up Barack the Barbarian #1 today and it is amusing. It hit me right in the Conan-fanboy part of my brain. It's an entertaining tale with familiar faces in new and strangely true roles. So enjoy!

Now the Barbarian must enter the wicked city of Warshingtun!

Many take notice of Barack's entry into the city. Among them, "Manny the Fixer" and "Hilaria and the cult of Biil."

Also taking notice is the evil Despot Boosh and his eviler Vizier Harry Burden! They decide to send Elephant Cultists to kill him.

Manny the Fixer and Barack are eating at tavern, (insert Dijon joke) and who walks through the door.....

Fight scene!

Then Manny and Barack escape through the back and travel to a temple. That this point, the narrator is revealed to be a elder of an ice village recounting a myth to children. Funny oil jokes follow.

Barack and Manny travel to the "Great Mall" to meet someone at a "temple."

And they meet....

Hilaria and Barack join forces but H's elite cadre of Amazons are pissed and go "We signed on to put a woman in the tower, not another set of gonads!" Some leave to join Red Sarah.

Boosh has a mysterious "goddess" locked in his tower. Barack, Red Sarah, Manny, Hilaria, the Old Warror and the Amazons must now battle through the "Labyrinth of Pundits!" to reach the tower.

Next time, True Believers!

Oh, I think it's hillarious, but really, the only takes on this are through humor or to take it to seriously and go into a depression or go mad.
