- Full Description
The critically acclaimed western anthology returns with an even bigger line-up than before! Thirty eight-page stories by some of the best and brightest creators in comics as they weave their own brand of tales about the old west. From more somber to action-packed to gut-wrenching character plays, it’s like the old days of comics. All wrapped up in eight pages! Explore the dark and gritty history of America we call the wild west, and the lawless men and lawless territory on the frontier. Some adult themes.
I like this. Art is all over the map, from Sienkiewicz-style abstract work to solid work that reminds me of Alex Toth and Moebius work as Jean Giraud on Blueberry. Life is REALLY cheap here, it's all about might...and a fast gun...usually makes right. But the good guys do win on occasion. There's even a piece-of-work sexy lady who engineers a bank robbery, shoots her cohorts, and blows everyone to kingdom come while she walks away looking like an innocent bystander. And an undertaker who delightfully creates chaos with his impassioned pleas for help down at the saloon, then reaps the rewards in dead bodies.
And a kid who wants to follow the outlaw life, and gets what he asks for. Betrayal, horse thieves, hangings, stage robbers, it's all here. And it‘s different, also, as these comics talents tackle a genre they rarely get to deal with. I think any western fan will enjoy this, and the third book is also now on sale.
Special Note: Image purposely made the cover and backcover art on this look beat up, like a gritty old book, with rubbed edges and such. They did such a good job, I had to compare copies to make sure these weren't damaged. Nope, they were printed that way. Just so you know and don't think we're sending you anything but a new, mint copy!
