Staff Picks (April 13): Magic Wind GN
Mar 15, 2013
Publisher: Epicenter Comics
Like the popular “spaghetti westerns” from the past, Italian writer Gianfranco Manfredi sculpts a unique western adventure in Magic Wind that is now finally making its way to North American readers.
Ned Ellis, a white man in the Old West loses his identity from a massive railroad accident and is reborn as “Magic Wind,” a member of the Sioux Indian tribe. A journalist who shares the name and appearance of the famous writer Edgar Allen Poe goes on a mission to investigate the same accident. Together, both men join forces to solve the true, devious conspiracy behind the accident and bring violent justice to the men responsible.
2000 AD artist Jose Ortiz illustrates this dark western tale with a style similar to the classic EC horror comics, giving Magic Wind a unique “classic” look that stands it apart from other recent western comics.
