Amazon Mounting "Barbarella"



Dynamite Entertainment's "Barbarella" #3, in support of the developing "Barbarella" live-action TV series, from Neal Purvis and Robert Wade ("Skyfall"), is written by Mark Carey and illustrated by Kenan Yarar, with covers by Vicente Cifuentes, Jorge Fornes, Caspar Wingaard, Tom Feister and Yarar, available February 9, 2018:


"...to stop a war a planet must fall.


"For 'Barbarella' the ends don't justify the terrible means...


"... but if she acts to save billions of innocents it may spell defeat and disaster for Earth..."


"Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn has offered to direct the pilot for the new series, adapting creator Jean-Claude Forest's erotic sci-fi comic strip.


"I kind of went back to the original comic," said Refn "and really began to close my eyes and fantasize about women in outer space and it looked pretty good." 


'Barbarella' is a young woman who travels from planet to planet and has numerous adventures, often involving sex. The aliens she meets often seduce her, and she also experiments with a 'machine excessive' or 'orgasmotron'. 


The original comic book version of 'Barbarella' was modeled on French actress Brigitte Bardot.


Barbarella will be produced and distributed by Gaumont International Télévision.
