I’m happy to announce that Matt Maxwell’s Strangeways: The Thirsty has joined us here at Robot 6. Matt started syndicating the book when we were at Newsarama and decided to join us at our new home once the first chapter wrapped up.
Courtesy of Matt, here are some details on the story, which started in Strangeways: Murder Moon:
Strangeways is the story of ex-Union officer turned expressman Seth Collins, as he finds himself adrift in the closing frontier of the post-Civil War era. Only this frontier is haunted by more than the ghosts of war. Things that are neither man nor beast, but the worst of both, hunt in the shadows and moonlight. Bandits and bad men are the least of your problems out here. Those can be solved by way of a little help from misters Smith and Wesson. But sometimes they’re not enough.
Strangeways: The Thirsty is the second graphic novel in the series. It follows on from the events of Murder Moon (though you certainly don’t need to have read the first to enjoy this one). Having both seen the town of Silver Branch saved from the wolf-man that preyed upon it and ultimately destroyed by its own dark secret, Collins heads further west in the direction of Virginia City, seeking his estranged sister. Only he finds a place called Drytown along the way. What lives in Drytown doesn’t come out during the day, and it really didn’t want to be found in the first place. But now that it’s been stirred, it’s up and packing a thirst.
You can order the first graphic novel, Murder Moon, on Amazon. Matt will have the first chapter of The Thirsty available on our Strangeways page soon, and will start posting pages from chapter two next week!
