    Finally! I think I need to go back and reread.

  2. mikeandzod21 mikeandzod21 says:

    Hey this disappeared there for a bit

  3. MacAoidh MacAoidh says:

    I cannot wait for this trade. But I guess I have to. :(

  4. I hope this reads just as good as the previous issues. The incredibly, and  ridiculously long, delay could really hurt the enjoyment of this.

  5. skydog skydog says:

    You guys think that somebody will tackle this as a movie? 

  6. RyanHoyt RyanHoyt says:

    @skydog: I believe Morrison announced some time around SDCC that the rights have already been picked up to develop this into a movie.  I think I read it at CBR but I’ll search for it…

  7. RyanHoyt RyanHoyt says:

    yep here it is, producers of Clash of the Titans have the film rights: http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2010/07/exclusive-joe-the-barbarian-film-adaptation-in-the-works/

    i hope it does get made i think this would make a great movie if they can do justice to the emotional aspects

  9. 360Logic 360Logic says:

    Whoa…kind of forgot this wasn’t finished yet.

  10. Evangelion11 Evangelion11 says:

    i started reading issues like 3 months into this and its one of the books that kept me buying so i hope they do a great hardcover for this id totaly buy it

  11. If this was the 1980s and ‘The Neverending Story’ never came out; then this would be perfect as a film.

    Not saying it can’t be a film now, but for some reason I get an 80s vibe with this series. 

  12. Evangelion11 Evangelion11 says:

    i totally agree with the 80s vibe, and i love those 80′s fantasy films so i think id love it haha

  13. edward says:

    It’s totally a Jim Henson movie in comic form 

  14. skydog skydog says:

    @Ryan, thanks for the info.  I’m thinking that if I was producing (notice i said producing not directing) this movie, i’d cast that Justin Beaver kid as Joe.  It’d instantly be the number one hit what with all the little girlies going to see the picture multiple times and you’d also recoup the the truck load of dough you’d have spent up front on teaching him to act. Haw haw.

    I’m done with this, it’s been too long since the last one, I’ve forgotten about it, and it never made much sense to me anyway. Too surreal for me.

  16. The lateness totally killed any enjoyment I could have with this. I’ve completely forgotten what happened before this issue and the story made even less sense then it did before. I’m probably going to re-read the issues again to see if I can enjoy this better. Again I’m sure it’s a good issue……that and Murphy’s layouts look absolutely terrific. (I want a shirt of Picard/Sups/Batman fighting monsters now!) As it is now, I gotta give it:

    3/5 

  17. stuclach stuclach says:

    Spoilers – I’m impressed. He didn’t make the selfless decision. He tries to save himself. That’s refreshingly realistic.

  18. I really like Murphy’s art and his layouts but I find his storytelling can be poor at times. Anyone else feel this or is it just me?

  19. PraxJarvin PraxJarvin says:

    Really good. Murphy and Morrison are quite a combo. 5/5 and my POTW
