This is your standard Western trope of criminals trying to redeem themselves, even though it's iffy if they are actually helping anyone. The story isn't very good and the art is worse. It's sloppy and overly busy. Most times I couldn't tell who was who. I had high hopes for TKO after reading Sentient, but this was crap. ...more

Kdybych se o to víc zajímal předem a zjistil si, ze Chun je scénarista Gothamu a Once Upon a Time, tak bych si The 7 Deadly Sins nikdy nekoupil. Ale jsem rád, že se to nestalo. Jde o krásně béčkovej, a teda hodně pohádkovej western, plnej klišé, bez jakýhokoliv originálního nápadu (ačkoliv originalita se přeceňuje) a se spoustou násilí. S přivřenejma očima jsem si to užil. A to doslova. Kresba je totiž strašlivá.
Artyom Trakhanov je patlal, kterej neudělá postavu stejnou ve dvou panelech. Fakt j

First, let's state I love westerns. The frontier, adventure, lose rules, damsels in distress, tribesmen, evil desperados and gunslingers. I know that despite wast plains the options are not limitless. And usually, the stories stick to a few schemes. There were few brave and bold who tried to stand out. Some successfully, some less so, but that was always refreshing. The 7 deadly sins story is not brave and bold. We got some wanted outcasts ho got suicidal chance to somehow redeem themselves.

This book is chock full of Western tropes and it doesn't understand what to do with any of them. I guess there are 7 outlaws who become the titular "7 deadly sins" incarnate, but after pride and gluttony I don't know who was what. The art is muddy and some panels are just too busy to be helpful. The story is linear enough, but it's neither satisfying or surprising.

This type of book exists elsewhere in better forms. There are more cohesive versions with cleaner visuals that make the whole thing

Another TKO book, written by the co-funder of the new publishing company Tze Chun. Wild West story set some time after the Civil War....

Bunch of death row criminals got their last chance for redemption in form of “suicide” mission.

The art is “Scalped-level” ugly but somehow I got used to it. Interesting cast of characters and the story itself is cool.

If you finished Red Dead Redemption 2 and you are carving for some more wild west stories, go for it!

The 7 Deadly Sins collects issues 1-6 of the series written by Tze Chun with art by Artyom Trakhanov.

A western in which seven misunderstood criminals come together to return a little girl to her Comanche father in order to stop bloodshed.

This is pretty standard story of a group of rag tag indivdiuals coming together to try to do the right thing. I really enjoy westerns but this felt pretty average. The art was very cartoony and busy and at times it was very hard to figure out what was happening
This is my third book to read from the new TKO comic publisher the first two were amazing. This has beautiful art hence the two stars but the story was crap.

Man, TKO press is really hit or miss. The first two I read Sentient and Sara were great. But the last two I read really weren't. I put this one down for awhile before picking it back up again, and that's saying something because it's a graphic novel. The art was not great, and there were several times I had a hard time figuring out which character was in frame. The writing wasn't that great either. Seven death convicts, seven deadly sins... Some of the sins like vanity, glutony and wrath were ob ...more

I had never heard of this comics publisher, so I opted to pick up a couple of TKO Studio's somewhat large sized trades. First up was this Western where a priest hires six outlaws, each of them (including the priest) representing one of the Seven Deadly Sins, to do something involving a Comanche war chief on a rampage against everyone in the area. That's a promising concept, but for the six issues collected, some of the seven get very little character development, and the text itself has to tell ...more

Do you want a brutal western that is just begging for Quentin Tarintino to make? Then look no further than The 7 Deadly Sins. This book is a violent, fast-paced, beautifully drawn story about a number of prisoners going into a deadly territory while being chased by a group of Texas Rangers. It's a pretty run-of-the-mill western tale, but sometimes there's nothing wrong with that. I think there were a couple of turns I didn't expect and kept it a bit fresh.

There's not much more to say than if yo

This story was a western and I’ve never really been a fan. Set in Texas and follows are group of outlaws on a mission. I really enjoyed the character Malene. She is pregnant and only cared about her unborn child’s safety. Reminded me of the character Michonne from The Walking Dead. Basically, she’s a badass! Lots of gore with the artwork.

The art style is a little jarring at first but it grew on me. Some great stuff there.
The story is an outlaws-team-up-against-corrupt-institutions trope but had enough originality that I wouldn't call it typical. I was engaged/interested throughout.
This was fun, violent, and satisfying.
Great ending.

Fun read - lots of good storytelling. Art was a bit of a mess at times and some panels I had no idea what was going on. That said, the adventure was a lot of fun, I enjoyed the characters, and I'll re-read at some point. If the stories of the American West of the 1860s, along with issues regarding the Civil War, sharecropping, and the Comanches are of interest, this is worth a buy and read. ...more

Full review:

Seven outlaws representing the seven deadly sins. That would have been a great theme except I don’t know which deadly sin is who. Well, gluttony was pretty obvious but the rest were not. The plot basically revolves on the topic of colonization. White people invading Indian lands. They’re not only taking their lands but are also killing them and forcibly taking their children as orphans of war. Here they use their religion as an excuse for the

Great western pulp! Fast, violent and a well crafted story. I wish there was a little more back story on the cast but that’s my only complaint. The art work’s great for the style of the story. Looking forward to more from tko

A solid western in the style of Sergio Leone and the other great Italian directors, with some terrific, expressive artwork. We'll worth reading if you're a fan of the genre. ...more

I enjoyed this, more than I thought I would. Artwork is decent (not my usual style). Story was a good.

Sloppily drawn and thematically disoriented. One or two interesting characters but to many others are never fleshed out enough to be cared about.

Trakhanov and Brusco’s work works so well together here.

A revenge suicide mission isn’t the most earth shattering of plots but this one stays gripping and gritty throughout.
