Review: Kingsway West #3

29001

The Chinese gunslinger Kingsway Law just wants to escape the winged Buffalo Scout Strode and find his long-lost wife, Sonia. But today he finally meets the mysterious community that the swordswoman Ah Toy has sworn to protect—and learns their terrifying secret. Now the fate of the West lies in Kingsway’s hands as he chooses between love and destiny.

The action-packed Kingsway West continues onward in this third issue. Writer Greg Pak creates great internal conflict in Kingsway as he debates becoming a killer once more, or if he should attempt to find his wife. I’m curious to see if Kingsway’s conflict will impact him given how the world around him seems to be forcing his hand.

The series seems to be getting increasingly dark as more issues are released. Artist Mirko Colak creates a heavy contrast in the art, as the overall atmosphere darkens. While I won’t spoil the terrifying secret-guarding the red gold, they are well done. It all gives way to a colorful firefight as they are released.

Review: Kingsway West #2

29000

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.
