Jenni’s Pick of the Week: Next Town Over #1
Written and Illustrated by Erin Mehlos
Page Count: 24
In this first chapter, the laconic Vane Black catches up with outlaw John Henry Hunter at the fringe of the territories, where Hunter is attempting to win a seemingly significant item of jewelry of heiress Veronique Dauterive.
Next Town Over is a paean to the western with liberal splashes of steampunk and sorcery; a twisted yarn about the nature of good and bad that’s only just begun to unravel.
