    Just picked it up in a grab bag discount rack for three bucks. A waste of three bucks. When I remember John Ostrander's gorgeous western graphic novels I hang my head and cry over the long running gag with very little plot and/or weight. Very little action, cheap gags, and running banter. The euphemisms wore very thin. The art is okay - but there really wasn't much paintworthy in the script. Kind of felt like I was reading a Mad magazine send-up of the Rawhide Kid.

    What the fuck did I just read. Annie Oakley's dressed like a Benny Hill girl and only about a third as smart as they were ever portrayed, and we only see her shoot once, and she makes a reference to nearly being sexually assaulted and it's played for laughs. Wyatt and Morgan Earp are so stupid it hurts to look at them. Lobo, the Native American hero, states that he's got an article due to some big newspaper and a piece due to the Harvard Law Review and immediately drops it all to (and I quote) "kil What the fuck did I just read.

Wyatt and Morgan Earp are so stupid it hurts to look at them. Lobo, the Native American hero, states that he's got an article due to some big newspaper and a piece due to the Harvard Law Review and immediately drops it all to (and I quote) "kill palefaces." Doc Holliday is about 95% okay, but he was always a reprobate, so it's not hard to keep that consistent. There's three other characters I don't care about and whose names I can barely remember, and then there's our lead, Rawhide Kid, who is gay. And do you know how I know he's gay? Was it a nuanced and careful portrayal of his sexuality as set in the old West? Hell no! Because everyone knows, and no one shuts up about it, and it is literally one of his two defining characteristics: He's super-double-triple mega gay, and he shoots all right. Sexuality is not a personality, and there's a difference between wanting to perhaps un-deify well-known heroes and just writing an absolute mess. Roger Ebert once said if you have to ask if it's symbolism, it's not. If you have to ask if it's satire, it's not. If you have to ask if it's comedy, it's not. It's bad. It's just really fucking bad. And Stan Lee edited it. Which means Stan Lee thought it was fine to print. And that's probably the part that hurts my brain the worst.

    Ron Zimmerman's Rawhide Kid stories are probably stories that I shouldn't find funny, but I do. I think what Zimmerman's intent is, and maybe I give him too much credit, is to portray a Gay Western hero and to send up all the cliches of Gay men and old-time Western films. The Kid needs to make his own version of the Magnificent Seven to save Morgan and Wyatt Earp. A couple of more historical characters are tossed in, and then it's sends up gunfights from there on out.

    An interesting modern take on these historical and classic comic book western figures. Kinda an odd but interesting read. Recommended.

    A really fun mashup of Marvel western characters that builds on the previous Rawhide Kid miniseries.

    Sequel to Slap Leather. Not as good, but I still enjoyed it.

    I'm not sure there is a plausible target audience for this. Anyone truly invested in the classic Atlas/Marvel Western comics probably wouldn't be happy with the 21st Century treatment. People who like speculative fiction in Western form likely would be dismayed by the sophomoric humor. That is the primary problem; Zimmerman's writing is...not good. His jokes are labored over entire pages at a time.

His jokes are labored over entire pages at a time. More unsettling, he handles the mature subject matter (when it does occur) with all of the subtlety and understanding of a twelve year old. The art is passable. It doesn't add anything to the action scenes (which are surprisingly few, often rendered as single panels), and hits a recurring low point whenever the Earps need to be seen. The inclusion of a 1967 issue of Two-Gun Kid hits a different kind of sour note. It serves as a reminder of how accepted the racial slurs and stereotypes of Native Americans were. Hey, kids, remember to hate/fear/want to kill those pesky Indians! They aren't really people like the rest of us. The plot, though, does feel a little more like a classic Western. It at least has some respect for the genre.

    Rawhide Kid, The Sensational Seven is a good book for anyone who likes surprises, and is interested in historic fiction as well as someone that is at least a teen (The words: Damn, and Hell along with innuendos run rife). The surprises were very surprising and almost none of them were expected. The history was pretty accurate with the book being about a dozen years after the civil war. As for the rating , well lets just say Rawhides dad is a Pervert. Overall the book was good with quite a few su Rawhide Kid, The Sensational Seven is a good book for anyone who likes surprises, and is interested in historic fiction as well as someone that is at least a teen (The words: Damn, and Hell along with innuendos run rife).

    This is a pretty poor follow up to the first story. I'm actually surprised that it's the same author. Perhaps he just decided that this was the sequel so he needed to go bigger. I don't know. This was simply not as much fun as the first one. I did enjoy Chaykin's art.
