A Western by Western!!


I've been rereading my few Valiant comics again and asking people at comicsuk forum what they enjoyed..
I never really got into these type of comics as a kid or teen I was always going for the humour comic..But as an adult I beginning to discover them and quite surprised how good they are. .:)

Trail to Nowhere was a really nice western serial - drawn, appropriately enough, by Mike Western - running from the first issue that Valiant combined with Lion: 25th May 1974 until the end of the year. Set in the late 19th Century, it's about a stroppy young boy who demands that the wandering trapper who saves him from Commanche Indians transports him to Fort Hazard in New Mexico. Well written, it focuses on the awkward relationship between the two as much as typical Wild West action.

There were still a lot of good strips in 1974 Valiant, really: Danny Doom, Valley of the Giants, Adam Eterno, and co.

A potential watery doom awaits the duo on 7th December 1974 - some dynamic art by Mr. Western here.

Trail to Nowhere is the kind of thing that should really be published in an album.

No, Crazy Man, their outcast Apache Indian friend is dead. Valiant pulls no punches!
