The Enfield Gang Massacre #3 Review:
Image Comics‘s action Western continues with an issue that pits the Enfield Gang against the lawmen in town… With absolutely devastating results.
Host Justin Tyler called the book his “favorite read of the week.” He also noted that it’s “beautifully drawn” with a “great” story. He also lauded the “real historical background… We get a lot of that context in the back matter.”
Both Tyler and fellow host Alex Zalben said this issue “feels like a great movie.” Zalben added that a double-page spread in the middle was some “absolutely bonkers… it made me guffaw.” They also both clarified that while this is clearly a comic, and is aimed to be a comic, you, “could put it right on screen as a movie and it would blow the roof off.”
Continuing on this bent, Tyler added that, “this is the kind of graphic novel or comic that you could teach in a class about comics, because it’s bringing real stories from the real world to life in the comic form.” Wrapping up, he said that Enfield Gang Massacre is a, “great Western story carrying on the That Texas Blood vibe in a whole new way.”
