The sci-fi sex kitten made famous by actress Jane Fonda in the 1960s is getting a 21st century makeover via Dynamite Comics in an all-new ongoing series.
Written by bestselling author Sarah Hoyt, this colorful sci-fi series spotlights artwork courtesy of Madibek Musabekov (Vampirella vs Purgatori), colorist Ivan Nunes, and letterer Carlos Mangual and SYFY Wire is launching an exclusive peek at the premiere issue.
While hopping from planet to planet,Barbarella’s plotline begins in Camelot, a world that’s home to the ultra-rich class seeking escape from a crowded and disintegrating galactic empire. Barbarella intercepts a frantic message transmitted by the poor underclass and she zooms off to investigate the dire SOS and unveils a wealth of hidden secrets on Camelot.
During her space-faring adventure she makes a stop at the underwater world of Encantado and the crazy carnival-like atmosphere of Rio aboard her retro-cool A.I.-equipped spaceship.
Writer Sarah Hoyt is the Prometheus Award and Dragon Award-winning novelist well known for her Darkship Series of sci-fi books and co-writing the Arcane America novel with Kevin J. Anderson titled Uncharted. This is her first writting assignment in the comics world.
Dynamite’s Barbarella #1 arrives on July 21 and includes provocative variant covers by Brian Bolland (Batman: The Killing Joke), Lucio Parrillo, Derrick Chew, Dani, and cosplayer Rachel Hollon. Now enjoy our special five-page first-look preview in the full gallery below:
