In the tail end of 2015, writer Brian K. Vaughan, artist Marcos Martín, and colorist Muntsa Vicente—the powerhouse team behind the sci-fi noir The Private Eye—quietly dropped Barrier #1 on their pay-what-you-want digital comics outlet Panel Syndicate. For those that missed its initial run, Barrier is a sci-fi miniseries that cuts straight to the heart of the conversation around American immigration. The miniseries introduces Liddy, a cattle rancher who prepares to protect her land from Mexican drug traffickers after finding a mutilated horse head on her property.
