The Bouncer

51TKGQP6JFL._SS500_ For anyone interested in wild west centric comics or really beautiful art, check out The Bouncer by Alexandro Jodorowsky and Francois Boucq.  The graphic novel series is comprised of two large format books centered around betrayals, murder and greed. I originally picked them up years ago because I was really taken in by Francois Boucq's sweeping illustrations. I don't think I've ever seen an artist with such a cinematic feel to their work. Not only are his landscape expansive, but even his indoor scenes can take on a larger-than-life dimension, while making the reader feel as though they are right in the middle of the action. The story itself will keep you engaged and its often brutal vision of life in the Old West will certainly make you think twice about longing for those simpler days.
