Loveless Vol. 2: Thicker Than Blackwater
Brian Azzarello, Marcello Frusin, Danijel Zezelj, Werther Dell’edera
*** 1/2 (out of five)
Wes Cutter’s done a darned fine job of pissing off nearly every person in the town of Blackwater.
And he’s only just begun.
Cutter is just settling into his new job and the most unwelcome sheriff in the post-civil war West — thanks to an appointment by the Northern Lawson Company — when two locals are found hacked to pieces in a murder reminiscent of a slaughter Cutter was part of during the war.
So on top of being thought of as a Yankee-loving turncoat and ne’er-do-well, now folks are thinking he’s a murderer.
Not quite what he and his wife, Ruth, had in mind when they set out to make the people of Blackwater pay for the crimes of the past.
Writer Brian Azzarello and artists Marcelo Frusin, Danijel Zezelj and Werther Dell’edera make sure Loveless continues to be the most wonderfully seedy and sordid Western comic around.
