The movie was better. And I say that thinking that the movie was not too hot. Not that either of these things were really terrible, it's more that neither lived up to the potential of the title. The title is so awesome, had so much promise... then it just sorta flopped.

About all this graphic novel had in common with the movie was the title. Even though there was the cowboy with the pretty bracelet on the cover, no pretty bracelet inside! I enjoyed the beginning, about conquering peoples, and the comparisons made between the aliens and the whites. And there was potential, just nothing ever really materialized. There was little character development, little story development, and little plot. If only a little more time was spent on it, it could have been awesome.
