Wes Cutter is a wanted man
running from a violent past - the horrors of the Civil War, a brutal stint in a Union prison camp, and the savage fallout of Reconstruction. But now he's come home to a town full of deadly secrets in search of his wife Ruth - a tormented woman who hides dark secrets of her own...

A Kin of Homecoming is quite a nasty piece of work - and I don't mean that as an insult. It's like a western gone sour - dredging up all sorts of politically incorrect scenarios, but handling them in a mature fashion. But don't worry the appeal for this collection reaches further than those with knowledge of the American Civil War, or lovers of westerns.

Writer Brian Azzerello goes for the jugular, while Marcelo Frusin's twisted art beautifully compliments the script.

Intelligently written, beautifully illustrated and, like all good western's this pulls no punches.
