Published: Vault Comics - November 30th, 2021

Possibly the funniest action/adventure/barbarian story of 2021, this book had me laughing out loud on several occasions. The Barbarian in this story is killed and goes to hell. He is offered a deal: take this talking axe and do only good deeds (pretty tough ask for a barbarian). Also the axe gets more and more drunk the more blood it drinks. This story is a hoot and a half!
