Barbaric Axe to Grind with Michael Moreci Play Comics

    • Visual Arts

Alright no jokes with this one at all. I was looking through Previews one month and there’s this cover just staring at me. Barbaric. Such a simple name. Such an enticing cover. What’s not to love? You know, unless you hate cool looking comics and/or getting in at the start of the story of something like this.

Enter Michael Moreci, writer of Barbaric, coming to talk about his wonderful series. Especially this second arc, Axe to Grind. I’ll be perfectly honest with you about this one in saying that I can’t over sell it because this thing is soooooooooooooooo good. The comic, not this episode. I don’t deserve as many O’s as the comic does. While you're checking things out, head over to the Wasted Space Kickstarter campaign as well.

Learn such things as:


How do you write an ongoing story when you know you essentially have to audition over and over at the end of each arc?
How are children like a bloodthirsty cursed axe?
How many different versions of the same comic issue is too many to have? And is that a different number if you were partially responsible for making it exist?
And so much more!

You can find on Twitter @MichaelMoreci and Instagram @michaelmoreci. And of course check out the Wasted Space Kickstarter campaign.
