That is the setting. Post-war, the story is of Kingsway Law, a Chinese gunslinger who deserted and is wanted for treason against the Queen of Golden City. Unfortunately for anyone trying to bring him in, they don’t last long, except for a Mexican woman who saves and marries him. We jump forward again by five years and, like all Westerns before this, it becomes a trek through the wilderness – a hunt. One with grit and sass . . . and monsters!
Within recent months - although I’ve known Greg Pak’s excellent work for a while now - he has become a writer I watch out for, especially with his creator-owned original works. He creates vivid landscapes and otherwise realistic settings, but with dangerous twists.
It’s difficult to say where this one is going, but I love Westerns and I love sci-fi/fantasy, so I say bring it on.
