Andrew Cheverton & Tim Keable - WEST Distance

This is the first part of the second volume of these comics about a cowboy. In this series he is fighting in the Northern Army in the American Civil War. This issue is setting up the story mainly as he writes a love letter to his wife Eloise and it fills in the back story so you don't have to have read the first volume to tell what's going on. I really like the artwork and the pacing on this story, that cover is very good isn't it. The artwork is full of lettraset style effects that must be done on the computer these days I guess, with lots of the drawing done with black and grey shapes. Its a very atmospheric style, and the landscapes are very good.
Buy it from here. I'll be interested to see what happens next in this tale.
