Review: Kingsway West #1
After spending thirteen years in a war that made him a monster, a Chinese gunslinger named Kingsway Law just wants to live in peace with his wife, Sonia. But even in a fantastical Old West crackling with magic, a man of his skills can never quite disappear. So when a woman with a red-gold sword brings bloody chaos to his doorstep, Kingsway must fight for his life, his wife, and his very soul.
Magic, gunslingers, and swordsman collide in the premiere issue of Kingsway West written by Greg Pak. The fist issue manages to showcase a solid, action-filled, pace as everyone seems to lust after red gold, the one element in the world that is more magic than science. It all comes together to create a really solid first issue, that leaves you wanting more.
Artist Mirko Colak manages to showcase a strong degree of realism, and heavy violence. Even with fantasy based creatures like dragons, and bigfoots running around the world feels real. I’m really curious to see what other fantasy-inspired creatures and elements get added as the story continues.
