Guns of Shadow Valley

2009-07-24-chapter-1-page-04

Rating: 4.5/5 – Great western with supernatural/horror elements
Premise:
In 1870s Oklahoma Territories is the Shadow Valley wherein lies a secret that could forever change the face of the frontier. To protect that secret, a posse of gunmen with special abilities must come together and defend against a tribe of ghostly warriors, an advancing army led by a deranged Colonel, and the perils of the valley itself.

What Makes It Awesome
To be honest, I don’t even consider myself a Western fan nor do I read many webcomics, but I was immediately drawn into this world. The art by David Wachter (Night of 1,000 Wolves) expresses the dusty, forlorn times of the ancient west while communicating the supernatural horrors that await.  Written by Wachter and James Andrew Clark the story steadily progresses, pulling the story threads together a page at a time.  Try a few panels and you will not be able to stop.

My Thoughts
This is a quality book. One of the great things about webcomics is the low cost of entry to the reader to give it a try. You are on your computer/mobile device reading this now, just click on the link and see if you agree.  While the book has been on a break, there is good news in that it is back.  Check out the kickstarter if you’d like a HC copy of the 1st 200 pages (100 currently complete).  Give it a read!
