From the creator of Image’s HOAX HUNTERS and newcomer Drew Zucker comes SKYBREAKER, a dark tale of revenge set in the Wild West. Skybreaker is a man of two worlds, half Sioux and half Christian. When these worlds clash, he is betrayed and left for dead–and now it’s time for revenge. SKYBREAKER explores the violent roots of American life, and how you can never kill your way to peace.

For the price you pay (69p) for each issue, there is a hell of a lot packed in here. It’s set in the traditional small town of the Wild West and has, over the space of three issues, introduced a whole raft of characters! Each one has been fleshed out to the degree that you understand what their motivations are, even if you haven’t got all the facts yet! The combination of the criminal townsfolk, Native Americans, Soldiers and any others makes this title a powder keg where you know it’s all going to blow up!
In addition to this the characters seem so ‘human’ with none being completely evil or good – the one main villain isn’t a mustache twirling ‘bwahahaha’ villain, but is the best kind where you feel an honest hatred of him, and he feels justified in his approach!
There’s a lot of story packed into these issues, but you can get into them well!

The black & white art has lots of detail in it with some well established lines and while it pours in the effects, it still makes the areas look desolate and dry! The characters are well recognised and there are some excellent poses and scenes to see!

Yes there’s a lot going on in the title, but at 69p and three issues out you can get these to catch up – especially is a good Western is your thing!
