Brian Azzarello has established himself as a crime-noir master.
So when the writer of the acclaimed series 100 Bullets told me two years ago he was planning on doing a Western comic, I’ll admit it was a bit hard to imagine.
Three words into the first page of Loveless and it all becomes very clear — Azzarello is ideal for the filthy, blood-soaked, foul-mouthed Old West.
Hitting the dusty trail along with his former Hellblazer art partner Marcelo Frusin, Azzarello trots us into the town of Blackwater and introduces us to Wes Cutter, returning from serving hard time in a Union prison camp after the Civil War.
But as Cutter and his mysterious partner begin making life hell for the occupying Union troops, who’ve taken his home and land, his true intentions slowly comes to light and it leaves little doubt Blackwater will burn before this series is done.
