The Man with No Name Comic Book


#1

[quote=“Wikipedia”]In July of 2007, American comic book company Dynamite Entertainment announced that they were going to begin publishing a comic book featuring The Man With No Name. Set after the events of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, the comic will be written by Christos Gage.[8] The first issue is to be released in the Spring of 2008, entitled, The Man with No Name: The Good, The Bad, and The Uglier.[9][/quote]

I think it just came out today. Has anybody heard about this or read it yet? The way the above text makes it sound is that this will be an ongoing series rather than a miniseries. Kind of curious.

So has anybody gotten their hands on a copy. The idea sounds really interesting.

I meant to download them but I forgot. Just read that Chuck Dixon is going to start writing for the book pretty soon though and he’s one of my favorite writers in comics so I might just have to get caught up.

Cool, I’m gonna try and find it. The more I thought it over the better it sounded to me.

If you’re a try it before you buy it kinda guy like me here’s a link to the first issue. I still haven’t read it yet so I can’t vouch for the quality.

You’ll need a program called cdisplay to view it but it’s free and a really small program.

Awesome, thanks.

Checked it out, a cool little book although I’m really fucking glad I didn’t take the time to track it down. If they ever compiled all the books in one graphic novel I’d probably pick it up just to see what they do with the material, which by this alone isn’t much. Curious.



Is it just me or would the Man With No Name never talk as much as he does in this thing?


#8

Yeah, turning Blondie into a chatterbox kinda ruined it for me. It wasn’t a horrible comic book but I won’t be forking over $3.50 an issue anytime soon.

“The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” is now a comic book. I haven’t read it yet but it’s written by Chuck Dixon so it should be pretty damn good. Here’s a link for anyone interested. You’ll need CDisplay to view it.

Better than the last one?


#11

Just read it. Ten times better. Writer and artist clearly understand the world better than the crew behind 'The Man With No Name". Quite a few panels with no dialogue and “Blondie” is definitely not a chatterbox. First three pages in fact have no dialogue in them.



There’s also a really cool little bit at the end where Chick Dixon does a brief history/explanation of the Spaghetti Western.



So, yeah. Much, much better than the last one.
