By the end of the story you are introduced to a good supporting cast, given the origin of a legend, established an arch-nemesis and have a door left open for the further adventures of Kid Colt. Is it a happy ending? Well, not for everybody, and there are several deaths along the way. But I believe that the reader will get a happy ending and not regret this purchase. Marvel does not put out issues like this to often, so if you are even remotely interested in excellent westerns or are a fan DeFalco or Burchett's work pick it up. I have no qualms about giving this book 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
The story itself is standard, with Kid Colt falsely accused of murder and encountering bad guys and bounty hunters left and right. It's not the most inspiring story out here, though, and that is a shame. Marvel, like DC, has a strong legacy of Western characters and it would be fun to see someone really tackle them again. In the end, I'm glad DeFalco and Burchett got to see their story in print as well as online, but I wish for their sakes that it had been in a way that fit the story's format better. Read Full Review
