    How trite can they get with this? That wasn't comedy....that was cliche.

    Despite what Warner says, I still feel like this title needs to be able shake of any remaining stigma from She-of-Baywatch-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. I'll be picking this one up to see how it shakes out.

    That sounds like the kind of reply my wife would make; and I mean that in a positive, life-affirming, low-carb way.

    Are you trying to kill this new Barb Wire off before it even gets going? Cat Woman and WW for crying out loud? The difference between the three is that BW is the cool one and the other two are just lame.

    I wouldn't go so far as to label Catwoman and Wonder Woman as lame; but I do think you've raised a good point. This series hasn't even landed on the shelves, but the idea of crossovers is already springing up. Yes, it's best to let this series come out of the gate and get running under its own merits.

    That's one of the things that I've enjoyed about Dark Horse's approach to the super hero genre: they don't go crazy with the crossovers. When it does happen, it feels like a bonus IMO.

    This looks/sounds like it might have some fun potential. I've always thought Olliffe was an under-rated artist, and I like what Warner had to say in the interview about the approach they're taking.

    I'll give it a try. The idea that a comic can actually be fun rather than overly serious or a sociopolitical statement of some sort appeals to me. I wish Warner had embraced the idea that Barb is sexy and knows it. Some of us miss that which is being pushed out of comics in recent years. And it is not as if it's impossible for a woman to be cool and clever while being visually appealing (Yes, I mean sexy, darn it!) at the same time. At least it shouldn't be in a comic book. I'll keep fingers crossed and see how it goes.

    This looks so great. I can't wait. I liked the first series when I read it last year. It wasn't anything special, but it was fun.
    I still miss Renee Montoya. Oh, and I'm a dude.

    lol..no not really...but then again...I'd just as soon not see it cross over with any of the other Dark Horse heroes either. They tried this back when the original series was around. Dark Horse couldn't get a proper cross over going back then. Just leave them alone. I was just making the comment because I'm seeing all kinds of intercompany crossovers now. Although I have noticed that Marvel is staying away from it.
