Horse opera

I’ve been pondering the Western again lately. Been a while since my MA, but pulled down some of the books that helped me draw a line from John Ford to Cormac McCarthy and I’ve just been nudged to revisit Lucio Fulci’s spaghetti westerns. And I’m still thinking a lot about Red Dead Redemption (and to a lesser extent its horror add-on). Icons and their subversion, myth and revisionism… and over the weekend I think I’ll go back to Zane Grey.

So it was nice when my GReader offered up the latest from Golden Age Comic Book Stories:
