I loved the artwork in this comic--the bold colors captured the various highs and lows of the story and the sketchy style matched the dirty, fast-paced lifestyle. The story is fascinating--all the more so because it is based on real events. Nat was born as a slave, then became a famously skilled cowboy, and finally ended up as a Pullman Porter. Fans of old west adventures, history, and comics will find plenty to keep them happy in these pages.
