THERE’S A NEW SHERIFF
ON THE PLANET IN COPPERHEAD
New sci-fi western mines drama from crime and corruption in a small town
Copperhead is a grimy, dusty mining town on a distant planet, not exactly the kind of place where a single mother would choose to settled down—but Clara Bronson is the new sheriff in town, and she has some secrets. And secrets won’t last long in a small town, especially when Clara’s profile is about to get a lot larger as she investigates a grisly massacre in COPPERHEAD, the new Image Comics space western series by Jay Faerber (GRAVEYARD SHIFT, NEAR DEATH) and Scott Godlewski (Dracula: The Company of Monsters).

In the latest issue of Copperhead, we see the conclusion of the first story arc. The clues are starting to point to the real reason behind the Sewell family murder. Sheriff Clara Bronson must set aside her distrust of Ishmael, the artificial human, to uncover the truth behind his involvement and the murders.
Copperhead is a series that I have really enjoyed these last few months. Momentum has been slowly building up to this point and it’s paying off. Jay Faerber has done an excellent job with this series, throwing in many good twists that have kept me guessing who’s a suspect or what’s a character’s involvement with this murder. Like any good mystery should. While Scott Godlewski art is great, it has really given the comic a “lived-in universe” feel reminiscence to some great old Westerns movies.

We continue our review of the year that was 2014, and I wanted to cap off my series of articles covering the awesome of 2014 by highlighting this year’s comics that will persist into 2015 and beyond. Ongoing comics are one of my favorite aspects of the medium because they are there each and every month, provide an opportunity to tell elaborate stories with epic scope, and there’s nothing quite like a 50 issue investment paying off in spades. But, being a comic Nowist (coined term; trademark pending) I’m all about the new comics, and the freshness and excitement that comes along with them. Here’s my top new ongoing comic books of 2014.

Sheriff Clara Bronson sets a trap while Deputy Boo chases down lead—both figuratively and literally.
Picking up from events in issue 2, Clara confronts Ishmael, the artificially-created humanoid (arties), who safely returned her son, Zeke, from the Badlands. Clara has a history with arties and is distrustful of them. After a heated exchange, Ishmael leaves while Clara tends to Zeke. Later, Clara returns to the investigation of the Sewell family massacre, deciding to release Mrs. Sewell from custody in hopes of a lead. Clara’s intuition doesn’t pay off as she hoped, while Zeke makes a revelation that may provide the first solid lead into the investigation. Check out a preview of Copperhead #3.
