    Find all of my reviews at: SPOILY BECAUSE I SUCK AT REVIEWING GRAPHIC NOVELS AND THIS ONE WAS PRETTY MUCH JUST A TEASER OF WHAT’S TO COME AND I’M AN OVERSHARER SO READ AT YOUR OWN RISKWe first meet Liddy out on the range in the sweltering Texas heat.

    The Panel Syndicate team behind The Private Eye – Brian K Vaughan, Marcos Martin and Muntsa Vicente – return for a great new digital comic: Barrier! Texas cowgirl Liddy and her Mexican employee Balthazar find a horse’s head on her land, skinned of its hide and missing its eyeballs – is it a message from a Mexican drug cartel who’re using her land for deals, or something else...? On the other side of the border is Oscar, a young Mexican ...

    una pasada.... un delirio visual, un derroche de imaginación y creatividad, una narración gráfica maravillosa y una idea central que habla sobre las barreras que ponemos a la comunicación, tanto por los distintos idiomas como por nuestras ideas preconcebidas y los bloqueos mentales que nos autoimponemos...Liddy, una ranchera Texana bastante conservadora y Oscar, un emigrante ilegal hondureño se ven envueltos en una extraña situación que le...

    Magnificent. @PanelSyndicate brings back the Terrible Trio (@HeyBKV,Marcos and Muntsa) para una miniserie en Spanglish. Vemos a Oscar cruzar ilegalmente desde San Pedro Sula en Honduras hasta Pharr, Texas para acabar en la propiedad de Liddy. El final es el cliffhanger que te deja pensando "what the fuck?, didn't see that comming". Espero no tarde mucho en salir el siguiente número.
  • Natalie Wagner
    I'm super intrigued by the story, and the color work is awesome. It'll be fun to see where it goes next. This would be kind of a tough read for someone who has only a basic level understanding of Spanish.
  • Taylor Cayes
    Gorgeous artwork, and the story should be interesting as it develops. A little sparse on content considering the page count, though.

    Got this at Free Comic Book Day and liked it a lot. My high school Spanish was enough to understand the Spanish dialog for the most part, and I used google translate for a few phrases. Note to other reviewers, it's pretty clear that you're meant to struggle with a language barrier in this story about border crossing... it's a feature not a bug.
  • Katherine
    I was disturbed by the very detailed adult entertainment one character was watching. It was meant to be for character development, but I would have preferred it to have been implied rather than stated.
  • Andrew
    I picked this up during Free Comic Book Day! I didn't even realize the creative team of the book when I picked it up (solely because the cover is rad). I thought this was a great prologue, and I can't wait to see where it goes from here. The art is fantastic.
  • Rita
    Grabbed it as part of Free Comic Book Day 2018 and really liked it. Will start collecting the following issues. I need to know what happens next!
  • Annise Blanchard
    Interesting! I really like that this is in both English and Spanish, and the differences they show between ranch owners/racists in Texas, and immigrants fleeing to America.
  • feux d'artifice
    a teaser more than anything, not sure if I would like the full volume but based on what I'm read I'm curious about what comes next, so I guess the story did it's job.

    One of the main characters is from San Pedro Sula XD
  • Alexander Pyles
    Awesome little comic and a great twist of contemporary issues like illegal immigration and dealing with "the other." Don't miss out on this one!

    Mais uma bela FC do Brian.

    Actually, 11 stars! Amazing page compositions for a fantastic story opening.

    Re-read this before reading issue #2, released this week. Hard to remember details from a comic I read last December!
  • Ryland Lee
    Fantastic coloring from Muntsa Vicente. And Marcos Martin was wonderful of course. I especially enjoyed the artwork in the last half as the characters backstories draw closer together. Side panels, one for each character, and a central setting/atmosphere panel, really served that portion of the narrative. Sadly, the narrative did feel mostly like backstory. As interesting as the characters were, I expected a bit more narrative depth as there did ...
  • Artemy
    Seems to be interesting enough so far, even though I grow increasingly disappointed in BKV in general. What really annoyed me in this issue is that the Spanish dialogue wasn't translated. And there was a lot of it. Seems like enough to be important to the story. I understand that this is done by design, but still, not cool.Otherwise, we'll see where this is going. I generally really don't care for the stories about (view spoiler)[alien abductions...
  • Garrison
    Dual language dialogue is really interesting and also a little disorientating. I think the art and panel structure is really interesting. Reading on a widescreen is nice too. It seems like whatever direction I had going through was derailed as the issue wrapped. I have very little understanding of where it'll go next. I take that as a sign of a BKV success.
  • Drew Wheeler
    Another interesting work by BKV. Ready for more.
