I just got back from the comic shop and I purchased three comics: The Escapists 2, The Black Coat 4, and Scarlet Traces: The Great Game 2. Two second issues and a fourth issue; all young stuff this week.

Last week’s “Dusty Star 1” was almost good. I really liked the artwork and the script was good but the plot was non-existent. It is a western. And a post apocalyptic western I think. There wasn’t enough established to tell. All that happened was a bunch of violence and a flashback to more violence. Otherwise not much happened. I don’t know if they are “writing for the trade paperback” or not but despite how much I liked the art and storytelling I’m not coming back for a second issue.
