Snake is a short story from the NOBODIES anthology, which you can pick up here.
Black and Hunter will be back on May 12th.
Also, OH SNAP! NICE SHOT! But…he can just get on the other horse…
When in doubt, go for the biggest target. Besides, a ventilated Dodge probably wouldn’t be much help even if he wanted to.
BTW, love panel four. Not only does it look cool, I really like the details such as the noses of the bullets visible at the front of the cylinder.
Man, you really like abusing horses in these comics, don’t you? 0_o
Probably cheaper to do, and PETA doesn’t have much of a fit, I guess.
It’s almost a bit of a trademark for this setting. The quality of the artwork makes it look good, but at the same time it hurts to look at. xP
Aww, I promise you that Squidbunny isn’t that way in real life! She’d totally rather die than hurt an animal, and has ridden horses numerous times without so much as aiming a slingshot at them. Killing horses, however, is a nice way to increase dramatic tension without creating “red shirt” human extras just so they can die. Also, it’s simply true that in the old west, horses were not highly thought of– they were tools, gear, livestock. A cowboy’s saddle was worth more than his horse. Finally, at least Squidbunny gives the horses in the comic expressions and feelings, so you really empathize with them.
I agree completely. It’s purely a great dramatic tactic. That there’s no ill-intent has certainly been clarified when it’s been brought up in the past, but it doesn’t hurt to re-emphasize that fact. 🙂
No disrespect to the horses but these’d be short stories if main characters kept getting shot down in the first few panels.
I wonder what the Injuns are doing in this world?
Dodge should have rode off instead of chatting ! I wonder if the other horse didn’t run off already ?
just discovered this comic today, and read it all in one sitting. LOVE IT!!!
Gawddammit why’s it always gotta be the HORSE that pays for people’s screw-ups??
I know, right? Poor horses.
Nice profile on Comic Vine! Managed to speed read and get caught up in a day! Cool story!
yo what is up with the animal cruelty in this comic?
