Review: Kingsway West #2
In an Old West overrun with magic, the Chinese outlaw Kingsway Law rides toward the town of Rio Chino to reunite with his wife. But can he escape a winged and dangerous Buffalo Soldier scout named Strode and the Engineer’s monstrous posse? Meanwhile, a swordswoman named Ah Toy seeks Kingsway’s help, but every step in the wrong direction is a step further from his love.
Greg Pak and Mirko Colak team up for a magical western!
Violence and flashbacks are two things that can be found throughout the second issue of Kingsway West. The flashbacks give Kingsway an almost human side grounded the story a bit. Those flashbacks manage to give Kingsway Law more depth, along with explains why he wants his wife back. Even if he has to go back to his old violent ways to do so.
The art, like the story, is violent and bloody. The fight scenes are filled with gunfire and bloody swords. Colak gives it all an almost movie like in that. That focus has the story flow with ease.
