After reading the first issue of Barb Wire, I'll have to admit, I let it fall to the wayside. It always seemed to come into our mailbox at the wrong time. The Adam Hughes covers are eye catching as always, but I've been burned by pretty covers before, so I always tread lightly whenever I see a really great cover. I tend to put a large burden inside on the writer and artists to live up to the appeal of that cover. Let's see if Barb Wire #7 follows through.
[caption id="attachment_52554" align="alignright" width="150"] The Adam Hughes variant[/caption] Dark Horse is really putting the push behind the relaunch of Barb Wire. Their promotion for retailers to trade in Star Wars #1 variant covers in order to get a rare Adam Hughes variant cover of Barb Wire #1 ends tomorrow. If you are a retailer and still want in on getting a Barb Wire #1 variant, then overnight them bad boys to Dark Horse today, because if they don't arrive by tomorrow, then you're out of luck. Now, if all you know about Barb Wire comes from that movie with Pamela Anderson, then you need to stop, forget that the movie ever happened, and give the character another chance.
