Streets of Glory

Streets of Glory
Garth Ennis (Author), Mike Wolfer (Artist)
ISBN: 1592910645

Streets of Glory is a perfectly serviceable “End of the Old West” story. Ennis gives us a grizzled but honorable old man, a fresh young kid, a savage Indian, an ill-fated love and the requisite railroad looming over a small town on the prairie. You can see how it’s all going to play out before the story is over. That’s the problem with Westerns – we all know that the Old West has gone the way of boom towns and the Pony Express. It takes a great deal of skill to craft a fresh and exiting story in such a well worn genre, skill that just isn’t present here.
