Great action, exactly what you’d expect from the creators.
Django/Zorro by Quentin Tarantino, Matt Wagner, Esteve Polls
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Description from Goodreads:
Set several years after the events of Django Unchained, Django again pursues evil men in his role as a bounty hunter. Taking to the roads of the American Southwest, he encounters the aged and sophisticated Diego de la Vega by sheer chance. Django is fascinated by this unusual character, the first wealthy white man he’s met who seems totally unconcerned with the color of his skin… and who can hold his own in a fight. Django hires on as Diego’s bodyguard, and is soon drawn into a fight to free the local indigenous people from brutal servitude.
Well, that was quite a ride! Great action, and what a duo. OK, I admit I still haven’t watched Django, I know I should, but somehow I can’t get to it, so I don’t know anything about this guy. But Zorro, on the other hand, him I do know and this story is totally in his style. I’m guessing from Django’s side you’ll have all the gunfights and killing as Zorro prefers not to kill.
I had a great time watching and reading how Diego gets rid of some idiots who think they can mess with him just because he’s wearing fancy and colorful clothes in this boring, dominated by brown and beige world. It seemed like Django had just as much fun :). I’m kind of surprised how these two came together and basically showed each other their secrets. Maybe I wanted them to hide more, but then again it worked out for them quite nicely.
I rather enjoyed the drawing style. I admit, I’m not an expert with graphic novels, but this one looks like one of the old-style superhero ones. It fits perfectly with the Zorro theme.
Ooooh and the extras… the original script and all the single issue covers! Awesome! I have to admit, I like Dynamite comics. They did publish some of the great ones :).
What are your thought on Django / Zorro crossover?
