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). Continue reading Preview: ‘Copperhead’ Volume 1
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.

Outright Geekery continues its rundown of the year that was 2014, and I’m sticking with comic books again, but this time it’s my favorite artists of the year. Man, there were so many pretty pictures, so much great art, this year that it was nigh impossible to come up with a short list. So, I made a long list featuring my favorite artists of the whole year, and instead of some long, drawn-out critique of how awesome these folks are at drawing lines on paper, here’s the list and some of their best stuff from the year. I implore you to click the images to make them larger, and behold the most awesome art of the entire year. Continue reading Gaumer’s Top Comic Book Artists 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.

Welcome to Copperhead, a grimy mining town on the edge of a backwater planet. Single mom Clara Bronson is the new sheriff, and on her first day she’ll have to contend with a resentful deputy, a shady mining tycoon, and a family of alien hillbillies. And did we mention the massacre?
Writer JAY FAERBER and the art team of SCOTT GODLEWSKI & RON RILEY bring you this gritty 24th Century Western with an extra-long first issue for the regular price of $3.50!
I’ve been a fan of Jay Faerber’s work since 2007’s Dynamo 5, I’ve gone back and checked out his other material, and was truly satisfied with the choice. So, I was excited when I saw Faerber’s latest book finally on shelves, and despite the ‘been-there-done-that’ aspect to the overall story, Copperhead #1 ties strong characters to a cool backdrop and has a ton of potential, but it’s the art that is the true standout in this book.
