    1. I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Didn't like it. Didn't make sense, and I couldn't follow it with all of the metaphysical (time travel?) goings on, and it didn't help that all of the characters looked virtually the same.



    2. 'Black Jack Ketchum' by Brian Schirmer with art by Claudia Balboni takes a historical figure and events, and puts a weird West twist on things.Tom Ketchum is mistaken for an outlaw named "Black Jack" Ketchum. It's easy enough to do since they look similar and have the same last name. He sets about to clear his name. Along the way he is aided by a talking gun, a mute girl toting a rifle and a strange gambler. He is running from the faceless Judge. He does this by using old West saloons as portals [...]


    3. Black Jack Ketchum by Brian Schirmer et. al. is a free NetGalley e-comicbook that I read in early June.Somewhat hard to follow, this story is that of a mistaken identity - a weak-minded man with a similar appearance and last name of a criminal at large - and an otherworldly pursuit, usually in groups of three foreboding, ringwraithlike creaturepeople. The main and supporting characters are sketched out as drawn, wiry, hallowed, worn, and dastardly in a world of indigo, browns, mustards, and spla [...]


    4. Gorgeously colored meditation on the Old West and the archetypes of folklore that ultimately makes no godd**n sense. There are some interesting thoughts swirling around here; but it all crumbles a bit once you really start poking around its metaphysical edges. Anyway, as mentioned, some of the one page design is stunning and Tom Ketchum's silent sidekick and talking gun are very good - but the entire whole is bit wanting.I received an ecopy from the publishers and NetGalley in exchange for an ho [...]


    5. This is a decent western story, sort of anyways. The artwork was crisp, and generally pretty solid. My favorite part of this was the covers. I received an advanced copy of this from Netgalley and the publisher


    6. I picked this up after reading a recommendation on this following the Twin Peaks finish, and if you read the back blurbs, this is pretty much described as a Lynchian western. On one hand, yeah, I get why people say that – this is a deliberately confusing mishmash of dimensional positioning and weirdness that certainly echoes a lot of that Peaks-style in many respects. On the other hand, this is kind of a rote walkthrough of basic, entry-level dimensional confusion that really just failed to re [...]


    7. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/Black Jack Ketchum is a graphic novel I really wanted to love - stylized artwork, thoughtful storyline, and an all around intelligent piece of work that doesn't pander to readers. But upon completion, I admittedly was shaking my head in frustration: something just didn't work. I'm all for metaphysical musings on life but I really need a much more coherent story in which to frame it and put it into context. So much about this book fel [...]


    8. After a historical lesson about the central figure, who was indeed a real-life person, things turn weird—yeah, the thing with the snow—and science-fictionly, part Brisco County and part Sledge Hammer. I love how the guy at the poker table is completely blasé with shots being fired all around him. Even more I love his sidekick, even if she doesn’t talk; taciturn plays well here. There’s one panel that squicked me out much more than I could have ever imagined, when he was cleaning the gun [...]


    9. I have long been a fan of comics and graphic novels, and have always particularly enjoyed the titles that are a little off the beaten path, that try something new or push the reader. This book fits in with that nicely, offering a story with traditional themes turned inside out or upside down in an artistic and innovative exploration. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to fans of weird tales and alternative storytelling. I particularly liked the way we are thrown into the world without exp [...]


    10. I got an electronic review copy of this book through Diamond Book Distributors and Net Galley because I was perked with the idea of a Western that has the name of an infamous historical criminal name Black Jack Ketchum. However this work was rather bizzare and truth be told it felt pointless. You wonder what is real and what is a dream. You follow along a story and then suddenly we see a transition of another scenario. I love the color, the illustration and the historical facts given but the sto [...]


    11. I have enjoyed westerns when I was younger. I read quite a few Louis L'Amour in the nineties. When I saw this graphic novel, I was expectedly an ode to the Westerns. Instead, this was a weird story with no plot-line I can tell. There is the issue of a dream sequence which annoyed me further. So at the end of this, I can't tell you what it is really about. Not recommending this one. I read this in two sittings- June 21 and August 2016. Didn't even bother to read over the first 48 pages and I don' [...]


    12. On paper, the concept sounds great. Tom Ketchum is mistaken for a wanted criminal and is hunted for the crimes of Black Jack Ketchum. But the book quickly dissolves into metaphysical drivel. Some people will compare this to David Lynch. But just because something is weird, doesn't make it Lynchian. It actually needs to be good. I couldn't follow a bit of this.Received an advance copy from Image and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


    13. Western tale with supernatural elementsFun comic collection about a cowboy who may or may not be Black Jack Ketchum, a notorious petty criminal. Various supernatural figures such as the Judge and the Dusters are pursuing him. Some characters seem also to be ghosts while Ambrose Bierce also features prominently. Quite nicely executed and colourfully illustrated, this is entertaining stuff though it goes all metaphysical at the end. Reasonable stuff but not really my favourite type of story


    14. I won this comic in a giveaway. The art is amazing. It's the best part of this comic. I found it difficult to follow as did my husband who is an avid comic book reader. Had the art not been so great, I would have given this only 1 or 2 stars. I wanted to like the story. There were pieces of it that showed real promise for a great plot. However, everything just seemed so disconnected it was hard to enjoy.


    15. It's sad how even the quirkiest hybrid genres can so quickly become generic in the bad sense. Steampunk did it long since, and here we have something which too often feels like weird Western by numbers. Strong art, though - especially in the faces, I'm reminded of Kevin O'Neill.(Netgalley ARC)
