This high-octane and uproariously funny graphic novel follows Barb the Brave as she battles Witch Head! Perfect for readers aged 6+ and fans of Bunny Vs Monkey, Disney’s Brave and Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man.
Barb is a Berzerker, one of an elite crew of warriors who protect the land of Bailiwick from the scourge of monsters. Barb has been captured by the evil Witch Head and, too injured to fight back, her chances for freedom are slim. They’re both in for a surprise when her Berzerker mum, Raven comes to the rescue. The mother-daughter duo escapes but can’t stop Witch Head from summoning a powerful army from the Shadow Realm to take over Bailiwick.
Can Barb and her ragtag crew of Berzerkers find a way to beat the infamous Shadow Army? Can she figure out how to harness the mystical power of the Ghost Blade? And can Porkchop make sure everybody has enough snacks? Barb’s adventure continues in this action-packed, side-splitting story!
