This week’s indie round-up features a gun-toting child in 18th century Lincoln in Midnight Butterfly, the latest instalment of Reckless Hero’s all action Operation Boom, and the surreal post-event world of Jack Lothian and Garry Mac’s Tomorrow.
The latest issue of our indie comics magazine The Pull List #4 is now available from our Gumroad store for the bargain price of £0.99! Our cover is supplied by the super talented Chris Imber and Chris Jenkins from Reckless Hero who represent a new generation of exciting UK indie publishers and they talk exclusively about their epic series the Last Sheriff.
Reckless Hero’s tale of a lone sheriff hiding from his past while evil gun-toting alien bounty hunters chase him down, has evolved from a trad sci-fi western into an epic space cowboy hybrid with some truly stunning visuals in The Last Sheriff #3. There’s also a new despicable bad guy in town hunting down our hero and a greatly expanded world for the characters to inhabit, but have we been too quick on the draw when it came to criticising Chris Jenkins and Chris Imber’s gun slinging hero?
For their follow up to The Last Sheriff, Reckless Hero’s Chris Jenkins and Chris Imber have gone for a tale that better fits their bombastic ’90s video game inspired visuals with mercenary team book Operation Boom!
We’ve seen a posse of sci-fi westerns ride into town in recent months, from big name gunslingers like Copperhead to indie desperadoes like Descending Outlands. But will The Last Sheriff from UK publisher Reckless Hero be quick on the draw at high noon and become the baddest book in town, or will it just end up another lily-livered pretender?
