    It really is the Wild West as familiar faces get shot down, and the good guys and bad guys can be as clearly delineated as they like. Nik Verella's pitch-perfect art is gorgeously dust-covered and ridden off into the sunset by top-shelf colorist Lee Loughridge, a knowing mix of dime store funny book charm and a modern impressionistic view of the genre.

    Reasons to buy this book: If Secret Wars has you run down on tie-in issues that leave you feeling empty, give 1872 a try. With one issue left, each issue has delivered a solid read. It was recently announced that Red Wolf would be getting his own series and that he would be jumping from the universe in this book to the all new all different Marvel universe. If else-world stories interest you in the slightest, I suggest picking this up. I had a few minor gripes with the issue, mainly with how it ended. Read Full Review

    Most of the plot twists can be seen coming a mile away as the downtrodden heroes of Timely begin rising up against Mayor Fisk and his bloodthirsty agents. Even so, there's a lot of enjoyment to be had in seeing Gerry Duggan's Wild West re-imagining of iconic Marvel characters, especially as characters like Carol Danvers join the fray. Read Full Review

    "1872" continues to tell a fast-paced story where the battle for an old west town is coming to its bloody conclusion. The comic has a lot of action and a couple of good plots going at the same time as the mini-series heads into its final issue. This issue has a couple of strange insertions and leaves some odd holes in the narrative flow and the action. Overall, this series a good read and might become a must-read as one of the lead characters, Red Wolf, will be sticking around in the new Marvel Universe. I recommend giving this a look.
