Good Lord, this book is Hilarious! I was literally laughing my ass off the whole time! I used to read old "Rawhide Kid" "Kid Colt" and "Two-gun Kid" comics many years ago when I was a kid, so I saw this graphic novel at Half Price Books and I saw it was in Marvel's "MAX" line of more adult type comics, so what the heck.
I had no idea what I was in store for.
I guess originally the Kid was, aside from being a great gun-fighter, markedly shy and embarrassed around women.
Well this new take on The Rawhide Kid explains all that...

*** !!! *** SPOILER ALERT *** !!! ***

He's Gay, and what's more he is openly Gay. The result is just the funniest thing I have read in a long time! And here is the beauty of it, the book does not come off as hostile to, or making fun of Gay people! No, the beauty of it is you are laughing with The Rawhide Kid as he makes his witty, catty and sarcastic remarks! Occasionally you are laughing at the character who happens to be Gay, but like I said, it does not seem to be derogatory to Gays in general. (Most of the Gay people that I am friends with have good senses of humor and I think most of them would love this book. There, that was a positive generalization, but is it bad because it is a generalization?)
I found myself loving this character, indeed all the characters were brilliant including some spoofs on other western personalities. The gang of outlaws were also truly hilarious, (I'm sorry to use that word so much but it is appropriate!) and make use of virtually all known "western" cliches to great comic effect!

And here is something else remarkable about this book, the artist John Severin was 82 when he did this and his work is just fantastic! He was the original artist for "The Rawhide Kid" and his handling of this ground-breaking, sensitive and humorous approach to this character is nothing short of remarkable!

If you like to laugh I recommend this Book!
(unless you are homophobic, in which case, I pity you.)
