  1. This was ok I doubt I ll go out and try to find any of this title, though I mean, it didn t piss me off, and it was a pretty quick little read, but I don t know The characters were sorta blah, and there wasn t enough world building to make me go, Oh cool Can t wait to see what that s all about The gist of the story is this A tough single mom is hired to be the sheriff of some wild westish town on some backwoods planet Her deputy partner who kinda looks like a cross between a guinea pig and a ka [...]


  2. Few genres lend themselves to one another as well as westerns and science fiction They ve been blended together with significant success on numerous occasions via a wide variety of entertainment platforms Jay Faerber and Scott Godlewski are definitely on the right track to follow suit with their initial installment of Copperhead.I d say both creators were pretty much spot on in combining the timeless western rudiments of a lonesome town, a shady business tycoon, and unfriendly locals with the co [...]


  3. Single mother Clara Benson arrives at Copperhead, a grimy mining town on the edge of a backwater planet to work as the towns, new sheriff But she hasn t even settled in properly before she has to sort of a fight among a family of alien hillbillies.This graphic novel is great, especially now when I have read all five issues The Volume is split into two different graphic novels over at NetGalley and they are finally back so I could read part 2 The art is great, the story is great and I love the hu [...]


  4. Space western always sounds appealing to me I guess it holds the promise of exploration, groundbreaking adventure, the frontier experience Unfortunately, not many space westerns live up to that promise, do they This one, for example, boils down to little than a generic police procedural and those funny looking aliens and spaceships don t really change that Copperhead reads like a rural, very pedestrian version of Alan Moore s Top 10 It isn t awful, but there s nothing here you haven t seen befo [...]


  5. Occasionally not often a blurb will work on me and Brian K Vaughan saying Copperhead is his favourite new comic and one of the best debuts in years made me pick this one up And right away I understood why Vaughan would say that this feels like something a younger him would write The opening scene is a train magnetically streaking through an alien desert landscape Clara Bronson, our heroine and a single mother, is in the largely deserted carriage, her young son sleeping on the seat opposite He s [...]


  6. To be honest, I m starting to get weirded out by the smug formulaic awesomeness of everything Image is doing these days but by extension, I m weirded out by the smug formulaic awesomeness of creator owned comics in general, like the equation for sequential narratives that play into trusted tropes but still feel edgy and outr is something the industry has finally got on lock It thrills me less and less to know my tastes are so easily commodified it actually makes me a little paranoid, being real [...]


  7. A Western in a Sci Fi setting Or Sci Fi set in the old Wild West Take your pick.I like the art and I was immediately drawn into the world of this comic Liked it right from the start Great colouring, love it A lot of interesting details in the larger scenes, great landscapes I probably would have liked it , if the art had been a little smoother, although the slightly coarser sketches have some appeal as well.The story in the second part of this comic is a bit of a let down Not a very exciting or [...]


  8. Okay, lets get the inevitable comparisons out of the way Firefly meets Tatooine meets High Noon Well, that kind of works, but Copperhead does indeed preserve its own unique flavor and Jay Faerber s dusty Sf noir narrative fits the story perfectly Clara Bronson and her son Zeke are on the run from a darkened past that we don t yet know enough about She s the new Sheriff in an abandoned mining town and before the sun sets on their first day, she is called on to a case that let s just say gets a li [...]


  9. Received from Netgalley for review About the only thing I can say to a sci fi western is, Give it to me Strange, that I don t have much interest in pure western as a genre, but cross it with SFF and I m so there It s working out pretty well for me so far, and this was no exception.It s both good and bad that the single best scene in the book is the first one Clara Bronson, that new sheriff in town, has no time for either a public transport harasser or the sort of Nice Guy who would love to postu [...]


  10. Well, well, well look what I stumbled across a BLAM BLAM shoot em up sci fi western comic Thank the heavens My comic book well was running dry I SO needed this kickass read Copperhead, a rough tumble mining town has a new Sheriff Clara Bronson A beautiful, don t mess with me woman and Mom Within minutes of setting foot in town, Clara pisses off her Deputy, Budroxifinicus aka Boo and is knee deep in trouble and murder War tensions, Badland baddies, bloodshed and a desperate need for a babysitter [...]


  11. This was a fun, solid, Sci fi western comic book The first five issues wrap up nicely and serve as an excellent introduction to life on an alien frontier planet.Art, color, panels were all nicely done.And really that s all I have to say I wasn t blown out of the water and wanting to run around like I had just found the world s first real life working just like it did in the movies Lightsaber Jedi powers not included But I was entertained for just under an hour, and really that s all that I was a [...]


  12. I m probably in the minority here, but I hate Westerns That s right, they ve just never been my thing In fact I tried this one without realizing it was a Space Western That being said, I enjoyed this one The characters were likable and, although heavily colored, I enjoyed the art In the end though it was a bit clich and there s not much here that screams originality Perhaps that s due to this being a lot of setup for the series so I d be interested in moving on to volume 2.


  13. Unfortunately, this falls short of what Image has been publishing lately The first three issues are good, giving solid background into the world and the characters but then nothing happens Five issues in, and the story has gone from well constructed to incredibly boring With all of the fantastic comics being published between Vertigo and Image, and unless the next volume picks up significant speed, this isn t worth reading.


  14. The first page of issue 4 involves a Sassy Sheriff Bronson, which is brilliant.Mr Mine owner whose name I forgot doesn t approve of Clara s sassiness, and complains non stop What is up with that bitch view spoiler The part where the other cop is on the video chat with him and absolutely rips him apart is great hide spoiler Merged review Ishmael is a badass Favourite character here Ishmael is an artificial human, but people who don t like them call them Arties Arties were made for the war that ha [...]


  15. End of the year review yeah, nothing strictly new in this comic It s a blend of police procedural plus cowboy story but set in a random planet with different species I for one liked it a lot it works It keep me interested in the story and sherrif s Clara s past The dynamic between Clara and the deputy is funny and I liked the art a lot even though I couldn t pinpoint why Overall it s the new series this year I enjoyed and can t wait to read about it, so I m reserving the 5 stars for the next b [...]


  16. I just read the first five issues of Copperhead and greatly enjoyed the story arc Faerber has taken a wild west cop story and placed it in a very science fiction setting Comics are the perfect medium for a story like this The characters are very good, the dialogue is fantastic and the art by Godlewski is perfect for this Highly recommended 4.5 stars8 21 15 I just reread the first five issues and they held up very well I am not going to argue my 4.5 stars and am about to move on to the next issue [...]


  17. The artwork was not that bad The story wasn t something great, but had it s good moments.On the whole a three stars experience Maybe the next one will be better.


  18. Note I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher via NetGalley.I simply loved Copperhead, right from the amazing world setting down to the plot and characters It has a really impressive story line and one I m looking forward to read again and again The life forms are really amazing, they are so western and alien, that it s a treat seeing them.I loved the lead, Sheriff Clara Bronson, and her personality She s a kick ass cop who ll stop at nothing to get crim [...]


  19. Sci Fi and Western mash up Copperhead gets off to a strong start Although it s mostly set up, the enjoyable characters and steady world building have left me intrigued.New Sheriff in town Clara Bronson is a strong, no nonsense parent who makes for a great lead She moves to the mining town of Copperhead and immediately has to contend with the locals, none of whom seem too happy about her arrival She s quickly faced with solving a massacre with her wonderfully disgruntled partner Budroxifinicusor [...]


  20. Copperhead follows single mom Clara Bronson as she begins her new job as sheriff on the planet Copperhead Clara may be in over her head as she takes on hillbilly aliens and a mysterious murder, but she finds an unlikely ally in her deputy Boo, who helps her along the way Copperhead is a great sci fi western that will spark readers imaginations The illustrations are vibrant and action packed We can t wait for volume 2 Find this graphic novel in our catalog mlco versoto graphics mvc


  21. A colourful and action packed story with likeable characters, great artwork and a detective story which keeps you guessing Loved it Looking forward to .



  22. This is a sci fi style weird western Our main character is the new sheriff in a frontier world, post war She is a single mom and is escaping something.There s a bit of fish out of water, there s the guy who got passed over for promotion, there s the sheriff that hates the rich.The story works hard to show that the sheriff is flawed, but has a softer side with her son She s almost too flawed for me, but I m holding out hope that her continued character arc will move her toward the type of sheriff [...]


  23. An enjoyable detective yarn, if a little thin on plot and characterisation The premise is far grander than the execution, but it s held my attention enough that I d like to find out about Clara Bronson and the world in which she lives.


  24. I m reviewing this ahead of the actual release, because I lack the patience to review individual issues I am grateful for the existence of Image as a publisher Over the last decade or they ve really become a great vehicle for getting something besides superheroes pushed into the mainstream comic world It s that sort of interest that leads them to interesting genre mashups like Copperhead.A sci fi western has been done a few times, but I appreciated Copperhead for several reasons The dialogue h [...]


  25. I read this one as it came out in singles This book has fantastic art, great characters and Saga quality world building.Highly recommended for anyone who ever thought, Yeah, Firefly is great and all but what if it was even western with real aliens Just read it.



  26. Best space western since Firefly Pretty excited to see where this one goes didn t anticipate liking it as much as I did.


  27. Really enjoyed this one The art is little than serviceable, but the story really carries this A new sheriff, Clara Bronson, comes to the backwater town of Copperhead, a mining settlement on an out of the way planet She s got her son in tow and is immediately thrust into a mystery involving a sort of hillbilly family of aliens who are all found dead except for one son , just a few hours after she and her deputy were called to the same homestead to break up a fight between family members Great at [...]


  28. Awwwww man, I wanted to love this 10 10 for the cover, 8 10 for the premise, 5 10 for the execution.Turns out this was merely ok Nothing to write home about, it was a pretty generic police procedural, with sci fi space opera western elements Now don t get me wrong, sci fi space opera western is totally my thing, the problem is this just felt kind of bland The art style did nothing to wow me, the writing brought nothing new to the table now that can change with future installments, but we can t r [...]
