Dixon Brings Justice To Moonstone
For Wyatt Earp: Dodge City #1 In January!
news for fans of the two-fisted writing style of Chuck Dixon.
After the collapse of CrossGen, where he did his best to
revivify the pirate genre (El Cazador) and was almost able
to make a stand as a Republican writer in a liberal media
(a series that never made it past the promotional art phase),
Dixon was left free to move about the country.
Tombstone...what's the difference?
to Moonstone, we now have him back, writing in one of the
many genres in which he is not only comfortable, but often
Wyatt Earp is an actual historical figure, he has long passed
into, if not legend, popular culture. Considering Moonstone's
usual oeuvre, this might even be a loose continuation of
the '50's television series starring Hugh O'Brian. Knowing
Dixon (which, actually, I don't), it's possible that there
may be elements from that baby boomer series present.
City, 1877: WYATT EARP's the towns new lawman, & it
don't take him more than five minutes to get into a tussle
with a couple of cowboys used to doing things the outlaw
way. Earp sets out to clean up the town, but some folks
don't take too kindly to his tactics. With the odds so stacked
against him why does DOC HOLIDAY cover the spread on a mark
these desperados put on his head? And what business brings
the MASTERSON boys to Dodge City?
by Chuck Dixon (Nightwing, Brids of Prey) with grey toned
art by Enrique Villagran (Punisher)!
rides into town...
your huckleberry, Mr. Dixon...
