Story: “The Good, The Bad, and the Zombie”

When two down-on-their-luck cowboys capture the most wanted outlaw in the West, they get more than they bargained for when they discover a Comanche shaman has infected him with an ancient zombie virus. If the zombie doesn’t kill them, the Comanche, rival bounty hunters, and other outlaws will!


I never really got into cowboy comics, or zombie comics – so why did I enjoy this initial issue so much?

Maybe it’s the art, which is very good – there are some excellent scenes here, from the light hearted and ‘happier’ times, to the dark parts. Maybe it’s because, at this point, we don’t get a full look at the zombies? Which increase the suspense?

The mix between the old times and the ‘now’ is very good, with some excellent overall visuals too!

The writing is also very good – well paced with a nice mix of cowboy humour, darkness and action! There are some excellent points here.

I like the sense of history with the title – there could be something like this!

To me, this is a mix in a comic which seems wrong, but works in so many ways – if you are tired of the same old tropes in comics, then I would recommend you look towards Red 5 – with titles like this you will be entertained
