Earp #1 “Could Become a Cult Classic”

Review by Tony Calandra

Radical Comics is bringing us an action packed adventure through Las Vegas. The main characters you have seen before, but not in this time period or setting. We get to see some classic western characters like Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. But this isn’t Tombstone, full of cowboy hats and spurs. This is the future mixed with some science fiction to boot. Earp: Saints for Sinners is a re-imagining of a classic western tale. We see these gunslingers move through a brand new crazy world, full of crime, outlaws, and depression. Earp: Saints for Sinners display some wonderful panels. But some of these panels the coloring is a bit dark, which then makes it hard for the viewer to understand each panel. Overall you get a good feel of the story and characters throughout the story. The first issue of Earp packs a good punch and delivers the goods. This latest comic book from Radical could become a cult classic, like Doc Holliday himself. So stray up your boots and take a ride into Earp: Saints for Sinners.

Synopsis

From Matt Cirulnick and David Manpearl comes a modern-day reimagining of the classic western hero, Wyatt Earp, in a special $1.00 issue #0 preview of the upcoming, 3-issue miniseries.

In a world where the American economy has all but collapsed to the levels of the Great Depression, infamous bandits roam the country and the law is as corrupt as the criminals it’s sworn to stop. Yet one lawman remains a steadfast moral compass for the people: WYATT EARP. Earp has collared more most-wanted men than anyone in history – but after a violent assignment claims the life of his brother, Wyatt sets out to forge a simple life in the only boomtown left: Las Vegas. With gorgeous women and free-flowing money on endless tap, SinCityattracts more people than a modern gold rush. Though Earp no longer wears a U.S. Marshall’s badge, his past is about to catch up to him. \With nearly everything to lose, Earp will have to beat the odds stacked against him in order to bring old-fashioned justice to Sin City.

Issue# 1 is out now. Go to any local area Baltimore Comic book shop for this title.
