the Adventures of Wyatt Earp in 2999 By Josh Lynch and Justin Zyduck


... Read It Now
The Adventures of Wyatt Earp in 2999 is an engaging series that pokes fun at two genres, SF & the Western.

While it's always fun to see a comic playing with such time honoured and cliche-riddled genres like the Western & SF, it is fun to see it done so well.  The concept of the displaced western hero is not new (c.f. Hex), but the creators heap absurdity upon absurdity in such a way that the old cliches become innovative tools to advance the personality of the characters.  Having only read the two issues, I find myself thoroughly invested in the characters of Wyatt and Doc, and find myself checking back to see if a new adventure is posted.  To write and illustrate a character that we can simultaneoulsy laugh at AND care about is a rare accomplishment.  The creators are to be commended for such an accomplishment, especially after two issues!

With respect to desgin, I enjoyed the horizontal layout that fits nicely on the computer screen.  It seems to me that for those of us used to the printed page and print comic book format, it is challenging to adjust as a reader to this format.  It must involve some considerable rethinking about story-telling  for the writer and illustrator when desigining the story.  These creators do this boldly.  I look forward to how they continue to develop their storytelling technique.

Thanks for a great read.
