The Good, Bad, Ugly Comic?

Western movies these days are few and far between, but Western games and comic books continue to appear with some regularity. Movie heroes Zorro, the Lone Ranger and Sergio Leone’s The Man With No Name are only a few of the characters who have found an audience in the comic book market. Newly added to that list is Chuck Dixon’s take on the third of Leone’s three Clint Eastwood movies, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly for Dynamite. The story takes up some time after the conclusion of the film, so I won’t be expecting to see Lee Van Cleef (The Bad) any time soon. So far the comic is simple and brutal, in keeping with the original. Time will tell if Dixon, and artist Esteve Polls, can find a way to match Leone’s wit and heart.
