Earp #4 “Works Tremendously Well”

Review by Wayne Hall

It’s the bloody end to a violent story, but I liked it!

First, for those who came in late, a description of the 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, Sin City attracts 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.”

Now, here’s this book’s description: “After the Pinkertons destroy the A.O.K., murder his brother, and kidnap his love, Wyatt Earp, furious and seeking vengeance, finally decides to rejoin the fray and bring old-fashioned justice back to Sin City. However, he’s not going to do it alone. Aided by his old partner, Doc Holliday, along with Jesse James and his gang of outlaws, newly-reappointed U.S. Marshal Wyatt Earp sets out on a mission to take down Mayor Flynn and the Pinkertons, bring bloody justice to those who deserve it and ultimately rid Las Vegas of the corrupt powers that have reigned over it for so long.”

Radical seems to prefer painted art, which is a great fit for this story. It’s a “cops and robbers” tale in the near future and it works tremendously well.

If Wyatt Earp thought he’d find a quiet life in Las Vegas, boy, was he wrong! Trouble follows him wherever he goes! Otherwise, it’d be a pretty dull comic, after all.

There are several surprises along the way, so grab hold and hang on for the conclusion of this wide ride!
