I knew I had to read this when I realized it was a western graphic novel for teens. You don't find many of those! To top it all off, it's very well-written with twists I didn't see coming! A time or two the dialogue seemed a little too much back-and-forth, which is hard to avoid in a graphic novel, but I think a few extra frames may have helped with that. The artwork is fantastic and fits the gritty feel of the novel well. I have to admit that the decomposing bodies left me a little nauseated, but that's normal for me and a sign of a well-rendered corpse. Chester is a well-rounded character who would prefer to sleep on the floor with his horse than in a bed without him, and who would knock someone out so he didn't have to deal with them, but wouldn't think of being impolite to a strange woman. Overall, I really liked this book, but for me it was just missing something that I can't quite put my finger on. I think this will really appeal to teenaged boys and girls who don't mind gore.
