Comments: “Red Hot Gospel” Part Two: Spoils of War.
Barbarella and Jury are still making their escape. We see Barbarella is more than just an ordinary human woman. She is much more.
The little Vix is a cute animal. It is illustrated beautifully. The scenery is filled with lots of weird things. Your eye will be drawn to this strangely compelling art. Barbarella does not look at all appealing as a nun.
Barbarella‘s facial expressions are drawn as weird looking things that just do not work. Her body is drawn gorgeously.
The story has little bursts of action but almost no fighting. Barbarella was not used all that much other than mainly walking around dressed as a nun. The whole story could have been presented a lot better and with artwork done better. It was almost as if the artist just gave up.
Barbarella is one fantastic character and if used right will deliver.
