|Bat Lash #2, Cover art by the legendary Walt Simonson.|
One of the draws beyond the genre for me in purchasing this title, which more and more seems to be the case, was the creative team involved: co-writers Western novelist Peter Brandvold (Rogue Lawman, .45-Caliber Deathtrap) and Sergio Aragones (Mad Magazine, Groo), cover artist Walter Simonson (Thor, Fantastic Four), and interiors artist John Severin (Mad Magazine, Cracked, Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandoes, to name just a few).

All six issues of the Bat Lash (2007) miniseries are likely available at cover price ($2.99) at your local comics store or at about a third of the price online. If you are a Western fan or simply an appreciator of fine comic book craftsmanship, you won't be disappointed.
