Preston Struck is a no-good, lily-livered coward.
He’s also a cheat and a crook, but that’s beside the point.
But the hero of Iron West just can’t seem to do the wrong thing when the heat is on and the getting is good.
Nope, Struck just can’t help but stick his neck out and help try to save the day when a band of gun-toting robots set their sights on taking over the sleepy little California town of Twain Harte.
Of course, he can’t save the whole town by himself, so Struck joins forces with — you guessed it — robot Indians, Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster!
Doug TenNapel, designer of the legendary 1990s video game Earthworm Jim — along with the terrific graphic novels Earthboy Jacobus and Tommysaurus Rex — gives us a fun-filled and farcical trip back to the Old West in an adventure that proves that you don’t always have to be good to do good.
