    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Aug 9, 2023

    With The Enfield Gang Massacre Condon and Phillips have once again proved themselves as one of the best duos in comics. Every bit of the Western spinoff/prequel delivers career-defining work, from the rich thematic narrative to the expressive linework and enrapturing coloring. This is a book that will hold a reader hostage and demand to be read over and over, and the audience will comply as every swath of color and flavorful bit of dialogue deserves to be etched into the mind. Maybe its true that everything is bigger in Texas, including egos, but never doubt for a second that Condon and Phillips deserve an ego fitting of the state after this debut issue. Read Full Review

    One of my favorite things as a kid was sitting down next to my grandfather and watching an old Western tale. The days of Clint Eastwood or John Wayne always running on his tv and the old good vs evil battle raging on in the middle of nowhere towns. Read Full Review
