It took me a few pages to recognize the writng and graphic awesomeness of this tome. The more I read/viewed the more in love with it all I became. Beautiful stuff. Typically the western genre is not my forte, however this french comic-tician is above all an artist and a story-teller supreme. Gus and his Gang are bright and vivid characters. The fact that they are basically superhero outlaws is just a minor, albeit spectacular, point of interest. The core of these stories (and guys) is their longing for love, a "true love" and for two-thirds of them it constantly eludes them. Which sort of baffles them because they are all extremely talented in almost all other areas. One of the gang members gets lucky, but it also is a curse. I love, love, love how this old timey western world is not all phony 60's TV clean (Bonanza), but actually has real life adult goings on. For example, clumsy love-making, "stage-fright", and sex guilt. Really, really enjoyed this one.
