The Marvelous Adventures of McConey Vol. 1: Gloomtown
In between bouts of bar room philosophizing and plates of red beans, one very hapless rabbit from the East gets himself entangled in sleepy Gloomtown's sordid scramble for newly-discovered gold, all the while trying to keep out of the clutches of the murderous Ex-Rex Logan gang. From the first speech bubble, Lewis Trondheim's witty dialogue makes it clear that this ain't just another Western comic. This is a decidedly off-kilter take on the genre by one of the greats of French indie comics.
