I very much enjoyed the first issue of Dead or Alive, but #2 really ramps up the action and quickens the pace. This is a classic western tale of the good guys chasing the bad guys, with some cowboys and Indians thrown in. The big twist here is that the Indians know something about the fugitive being hunted that the good guys don't, he is cursed/possessed, and is now a zombie!
At the onset of this issue our band of would-be bounty collectors have the villain in-hand, but then other bounty hunters come to take that reward away from them. During a firefight a tribe of local Indians shows up to kill the bounty because they believe him to be possessed (they're sort of correct, he's a zombie!), and during all of the mayhem the bounty is whisked away by yet another bounty hunter looking to get the $10,000 dollar reward.
He boards a train to Ft. Worth and sets off to the city. Our band of 'heroes' escapes the firefight and tracks the train down, but what they find is not at all what they were looking for.
I can't wait for the next issue of this book, as that final page was awesome!
If you are a fan of zombies, Walking Dead, creator-owned comics, or westerns, then support a local publisher, pick this up, you won't be sorry!
