- Full Description
In a lively cartoonish style that reminds us of Dan O'Neill and underground comics! Return to the down-and-dirty days of the wild West where the living wasn't so easy... especially for women. Martha Jane Cannary was a bona fide frontierswoman, a professional scout, a drunk, and sometime whore, doing whatever it took to stay alive in those hardscrabble days. Writer Christian Perrissin (El Niño, Cape Horn) joins forces with Alph-Art-winning artist Matthieu Blanchin to tackle the legend of this formidable prairie girl and her daring life alongside the likes of Buffalo Bill Cody and Wild Bill Hickok. In English for the first time ever.
This is a major work, 366-pages of feisty adventures, complete with maps, authentic and real characters, love-making and drama and pathos. Calamity was a survivor, and this thoroughly tells of her life, from her first trip west in 1852 on the Mormon Trail as a homesteader, her tempestuous relationship with Wild Bill Hickok (who already had a wife), to her performing in the 1880's Tom Hardwick's Great Mountain Show that performed in Chicago and throughout the west, recalling Custer's Last Stand and other events of wilder days.
This is the true story of an extraordinary, independent woman with gumption, the incredible Calamity Jane!
