Before Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney takes on the role for a big screen reboot, space siren Barbarella returns for a brand new comic book series in 2023 courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment, Barbarella: The Center Cannot Hold, from writer Sarah A. Hoyt and artist Riccardo Bogani.
The blurb for the series reads:
Barbarella and her pal Vix are off to the curious creature’s home world to try and stop a war between the Architects and their ancient nemesis, the fearsome Unnamable. The sheer volume of lives that will be lost in a war between two such massive galactic powers is nearly impossible to calculate. To complicate matters, her companion Taln mysteriously vanishes, leaving Barbarella to make her way through this adventure mostly alone, while Vix has to come to terms with the old adage that you can’t go home again. And at least one familiar face will return in this series as secrets are revealed, and sins laid bare.
“Barbarella and Vix desperately racing to find the Architects and try to prevent a cosmic-level war against the fearsome Unnamable that will destroy the galaxy which is the action on the surface, but at its heart, the theme for this story is that it matters who you are, not what you are,” states Hoyt.
