The Marvelous Adventures of McConey

1. Gloomtown

Script by Lewis Trondheim - Art by Lewis Trondheim

In between bouts of bar room philosophizing and plates of red beans, one very hapless rabbit from the East gets himself entangled in sleepy Gloomtown’s sordid scramble for newly-discovered gold, all the while trying to keep out of the clutches of the murderous Ex-Rex Logan gang. From the first speech bubble, Lewis Trondheim’s witty dialogue makes it clear that this ain’t just another Western comic. This is a decidedly off-kilter take on the genre by one of the greats of French indie comics.
