CBR15Passport Different Countries. (The magical realm of Bailiwick)
Barb The Last Berzerker V03 Barb and the Battle for Bailiwick is the third installment of the Dan & Jason series. However, while it was still funny, it was not as strong as the first two. It did continue the story of Barb the Berzerker and friends (and enemies) as they battle for their home, families, and friends. We see how different people (monsters, humans, etc.) come together as a team. Now, they do not fight each other, but fight a common baddie. And on top of that, Barb must deal with trying to grow up and a mother who still wants to protect her little girl (who she does not realize can brandish ghost swords and kick Witch Head butt!)
The humor, goofiness, a few burps, and loss of fur happens, as the battle is tough. But the love is tougher, and Barb the toughest of them all. Secrets are revealed and surprises are around every turn. Book Four does look like it is planned for “next time” and seems to be looking like it will take on another adventure for our heroes Barb the Berzerker and Porkchop the Yeti. The only problem is, you cannot visit Bailiwick until August 2023. And I found an online reader copy, so I am not sure if there are physical copies.
Dan Abdo and Jason Patterson are creating a Girl Power book that is for all readers (if you like offbeat “boy humor” (though I was waiting for the toot joke, but only got a few burps). The colors our overly bold and the details minimal to get the point across. And be it going down The Chute on a cookie sheet, or cooking up food in CHAR (the magic cooking pot) there is fun and adventure for all.
