Wild West: 1. Calamity Jane book cover

While the Western was probably overdone by Hollywood back in the first half of the 20th Century, there are plenty of stories left to tell in America’s dark and lawless history. The end of the Civil War saw white Americans swarm west, looking for opportunity in the swell of gold and technological development.

One such fortune seeker was Martha Cannary, whose adult trajectory starts at the beginning of this book as a cleaner in a brothel, but goes on to become the infamous Calamity Jane.

Thierry Gloris’s script is beautifully illustrated by Jacques Lamontagne. Available now from Europe Comics.
