FRANK FRAZETTAâ€™S FREEDOM (ONE-SHOT)
story MARK KIDWELL, art JOHN CBOINS, covers FRANK FRAZETTA, JOHN CBOINS & NAT JONES
32 PAGES, FC, $3.99
MARK KIDWELL (FRANK FRAZETTAâ€™S DARK KINGDOM) and JOHN CBOINS (GRAVESLINGER) team up for the first Frazetta Western!
In the fall of 1876, three months after the murder of Wild Bill Hickock, another legend rode into Deadwood, South Dakota.
The dime novels said he was fast with a six-gun and faster with the ladies–said heâ€™d killed more men than he could count. They called him the FREEDOM KID.
Sometimes, the pen is indeed mightier than the sword…
…and a LEGEND is a hard thing to live up to.
