Barry came to save the world but has been stuck down the back of the couch, in a memorably inventive story with a unique take on environmental themes Barry may be no larger than a can of beans, but his powers are awesome. The trouble is, he has been trapped down the back of the couch for more than 50 years, unable to do the job he was built for. His creators have gone back to their own planet and without his control the Earth is gradually falling apart. Floods, droughts, wars, and reality TV are only a few of the things that are threatening the whole of civilization. With only a bright red lipstick to help him, can Barry emerge from the darkness and save the world before it is too late?
