My name is Rick Hershey, I'm the new artist on the second Cowboys & Aliens comic. We have a great team together and I recalled your comments and review and wanted to send a link your way to check it out. We have been doing our best to get rid of a lot of the stereotypes and horrible cliches found in the original and are focusing more on the characters, history, and cultures involved in the setting.
Anyway, here is a link to the comic so far, and I would love to hear your thoughts on it or anyone else you think would be interested.
Worlds at War Prelude
Thanks for your time.
Worlds at War is a massive webcomic project that picks up directly where the first Cowboys and Aliens (http://www.drunkduck.com/CowboysAndAliens/) graphic novel left off. Zeke, Verity, and War Hawk (as well as several others who you will most certainly see more of) have just defeated the House of Dar. But, the story doesn't end there, as the other great Angaaran Houses are headed straight for Earth. It will be up to our heroes (and many new heroes from all around the world) to outwit the technologically superior Angaarans.
The first book, Prelude: A Call for Heroes, will be a series of various short stories, recapping the original graphic novel and introducing a variety of new characters that will play a major role in their various regions. Once the first book is wrapped up, we will delve much more deeply into each region being invaded (and to just give you a taste of what's to come, the Angaaran's will be invading countries from all around the world, such as Russia, Japan, and Africa, just to name a few, but those are down the line). We will be adding new comics to DrunkDuck nearly every day of the week (updates will be Monday through Saturday and will eventually expand to Sundays as well).
I don't know any of the Apache words or stories mentioned, so I checked. "Indii," the Apache name for themselves, seems reasonably accurate. As one website put it,
Other than that, the new volume looks good. I may have to check it out.
