I mean that almost literally. As far as I can tell, there isn't a single posting about it on the Internet. This one will be first.
The four-issue mini-series was written and drawn by Jeff Kear and published by Slave Labor Graphics in 1989. As the subtitle indicates, it tells the Nez Perce story: from Joseph's becoming chief to his "I will fight no more forever" surrender.
RELENTLESS PURSUIT is good for several reasons:
Enjoyable and educational, too
Among the things I learned from the comics were:
Only a couple things marred this otherwise fine series. Occasionally I found it hard to tell the Nez Perce leaders apart. In the fourth issue, Kear switches from mostly pictures with some text to mostly text with some pictures. This probably was a move to cut costs, but it makes the conclusion less effective.
Perhaps the best part is that RELENTLESS PURSUIT is inexpensive. You can get the whole series for less than $9.00 plus shipping at Mile High Comics. These days, $9 will buy you only two empty-headed superhero comics plus change.
In short, anyone who likes Native-themed comics should get RELENTLESS PURSUIT. For more on the subject, see Comic Books Featuring Indians.
