Greg Pak is a well-known name when it comes to comics, but he's yet to work on a series of his own designs. That changes on November 11 with the release of Kingsway West, a four-issue miniseries that features the illustrations of Mirko Colak.
“The Old West of Kingsway West reflects all of the social, economic and racial conflicts and tensions of the actual Old West—but it's also a world in which magic rather than technology drives much of the upheaval,” said Pak. “The whole scenario gives us a chance to think about the actual West in a new way—and maybe imagine entirely new ways for America to be born. And, of course, it's about heroes following their hearts as they make their way through a vast and dangerous frontier.”
After thirteen years in prison, a Chinese gunslinger named Kingsway Law just wants to find his wife. But in a fantastical American Old West crackling with magic, monsters, and racist vigilantes, trouble just won’t leave him be. And in this case, trouble is a woman with a magic sword who needs his help.
