I've never been one much for Westerns, but I've been an Eddie Campbell fan for years. His "scratchy" pen & ink style has always lent a peculiar expressive force to his work and made his storytelling feel like a transmission from a bygone era. In this tale adapted from a screenplay, a yarn of intrigue is spun that begins with the bombing of a train and results in a cross-country chase leading to the culprits. But don't expect a typical shoot-em-up. Campbell makes his characters quite human - perhaps more than we care to recognize - and the central plot leads to social commentary on the true nature of power and big business, seen through the lens of the late 19th century, yet painfully modern.
