    Virella adds little touches that both give a nod to other characters from the Marvel Universe and add to the authenticity of the comic's setting. His style is largely clean but has just enough coarseness to give the art the rough edges it needs to match the dusty, semi-civilized feel of the Old West. His layouts -- also in keeping with the old-timey nature of the story -- are traditional, with the usage of some inset panels that liven up each page but still convey a more old school feel. It's a feeling that's also well-captured by Leonard Kirk on the issue's standard cover, which is a simple but imposing rendering of Steve Rogers and Red Wolf with just enough of Timely's backdrop visible to communicate that, yes, this story really does take place in 1872.

    I'm really close to saying this should be a buy. The main reason I don't is I want to see where it goes from here. It could be great, or it could go off the rails, and the issue doesn't quite stand on its own, but it's really damn close. Read Full Review

    It's been awhile since Marvel had a good western book, but boy does this scratch that itch. Read Full Review
