"Copperhead" is a sci-fi Western detective comic starring Sheriff Bronson as she and her son move and settle into a frontier, mining town. The comic is action-packed (guns) and set in an alternate, post-war future (hovercrafts, artificial humans). Volume 1 follows Sheriff Bronson as she solves her first case.This first volume sets a solid stage for the series – the characters are distinct and the Faerber, Riley and Godlewski have built a rich world, warts and all. The tough, believable female protagonist is a plus. However, it will be up to future volumes to see whether the larger plot pans out, and whether Copperhead can grow into more than just a detective story.Sidenote: the layouts are gorgeous with many panels of non-regular sizes and shapes that create a rare dynamism on the page.
