BOOM! Studios re-invents the Western - and you've never seen the Old West like this before. Ex-slave and former Union soldier Cole has spent the years following the Civil War building a reputation as the most fearsome bounty hunter in the land. But when the tables turn and a bounty is placed on Cole's head, all hell breaks loose. Finding himself unable to protect the thing most precious to him - his family - Cole goes on a rampage of revenge, leaving only a trail of blood in his wake. With nothing but his horse, his one surviving son and his gun, Cole's rampage leaves no stone unturned and no culprit alive! Covers by Leonardo Mancoo and Robert Adler.

    Pale Horse is the kind of western you dont find anymore in the movies--one where the material is allowed to embrace its genre and be unabashedly trashy, which I mean in the best way. This might be one of my favorite releases from BOOM! Studios thus far, provided theres more violence to come and absolutely no funny business with sea creatures, werewolves, clockwork men, monkey cults, or Cthulhus. I beg you, comics. Read Full Review

    This isn't a book about redemption and justice; it's a book about revenge and murder. It's a one-note book at this point, and gritty revenge can only take a story so far. I'm hopeful that we haven't already reached that limit. Read Full Review
