Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) February 22, 2012 -- THE BARBARIAN is an incredible digital experience. It can be downloaded from the popular Comixology and Graphicly platforms. It has been specially mastered by it's co-creator Scott Amundson and Comixology to enhance the reading experience on iPads, iPhones, personal computers, and other phones and digital devices. This comic can not be read on paper. Comixology's patented Guided View makes THE BARBARIAN easy to read on the go from anywhere in the world.
The action-packed, atmospheric and tense character study focuses on the lead's decision and action and is penned by bombastic writer "Savvy" Scott Amundson and brought to life by the dynamic art of superstar Hong Kong artist "Jaunty" Jim Lai and amped up to 11 by the lush inks of acclaimed French inker "Trottin'" Tchals, the absorbing colors of the incredible "Merry" Michael Summers, and the vibrant lettering of the out of this world Italian letterer "Elated" ET Dollman and the innovative logo designer and lettering perfectionist "Generous" Jim Cambell!
To celebrate this new era in barbarian literature, the first issue of THE BARBARIAN is being offered completely free on the popular Comics by comiXology app for the iPhone and Android platforms. But, that's not all! The following three pulse-pounding, senses-shattering issues will be available to own for the insanely low price of just 99 cents! Now, that's a deal that can't be beat!
The enormous buzz around BARBARIAN has energized comic book industry reviewers. Here are just some of the things they've had to say about the most exciting comic book miniseries of the last 25 years:
"...a good read for a casual reader interested in a lot of action." - NICOLE D'ANDRIA, PLAYER AFFINITY, Issue 4 Review Score: 6.8
"The art, by Jim Lai, is as big and brash as you would expect from a title with Conan-style characters, while the script, by Scott Amundson, clips along at a fair old pace..." - NEIL BROADFOOT, TOO DANGEROUS FOR A GIRL
"It is entirely possible that Barbarian is the greatest piece of sequential art ever produced. Maybe I would realize that if I could just figure out what it was about." - EVAN HENRY, MEN IN TIGHTS REVIEWS
"...Scott Amundson can write and he can write extremely well." - NICOLE D'ANDRIA, PLAYER AFFINITY, Issue 3 Review Score: 6.9
If these reviewers know their stuff, that means that BARBARIAN is worth seeking out. Everyone will enjoy the story of an odd anti-hero who lives outside the confines and comforts of society.
He is the primitive hero that society needs, not the one they desire. His rage is mythic. He is The Barbarian. He is an anger-filled creature of mystery!
