The Undead Heroine Of This Webcomic Western Must Cause The Apocalypse

Illustration for article titled The Undead Heroine Of This Webcomic Western Must Cause The Apocalypse

Two of our favorite webcomic creators, Anthony Clark of Nedroid and KC Green of Gunshow, have teamed up to bring us a hilariously absurd, apocalyptic fantasy western. It all starts when a gunslinger is raised from the dead and told she has to bring about the end of the world, and only gets stranger from there.


Green has shown off his bonkers sense of humor in his Gunshow comics, but we've especially enjoyed his jaunts into longer stories like Anime Club and Graveyard Quest. In the newer webcomic Back, his writing shines, thanks in no small part to Clark's artwork. Together, the two have a delightful sense of absurdity and comic timing.

It all starts when a gunfighter without a name or any memories emerges from her grave to discover a pair of dead men and a flock of living witches. The witches name her a name, Abigail, and a purpose: she is prophesized to bring about the end of the world. So Abigail sets off to fulfill her destiny.


But the fantasy western mashup world Abigail wakes up into has some fantasy western problems. She quickly wanders into a town plagued by a band of tax collecting thugs known as the Tummy Boys. Will Abigail prove a hero, perhaps in spite of herself? Does she really have a destiny, or are the witches who sent her on her quest plain mad? And if she does have a destiny, is she beholden to it or can she change her fate? We don't know, but we'll have a good laugh while we wait to find out.

Hah I like the art. And the character design for her, you don't get many female characters designed in such an "ugly" way.
