    1 thought on “Iron West”

    1. This is a book where Cowboys fight a bunch of robots. Written By Doug Tenapel who brings his usual command of awesomeness to bear. I'll repeat. Cowboys. Fighting Robots. If those three words don't make you want to buy this well I just don't know what to do with you.

    2. Doug TenNapel seems to be one of those artists who drives himself to "improve" his output each year by way of slowly whittling away at what made his work so endearing in the first place. In our time-and-efficiency enslaved society, I can understand why one would seek to enhance their work ethic in such ways, but applying such means to art is travesty. Iron West reads like a Reader's Digest abridged version of a tale; as I read, I couldn't help but feel as though every other page of the full stor [...]

    3. Absolutely brilliant. I loved this one and think it has moved up to being my favourite of TenNapel's books, and I've read a good many of them now. This one is perfectly suitable as a YA-Adult read. I may be partial to this because I am a sucker for both Westerns and Steampunk and Doug has put these two together brilliantly. Only Doug TenNapel could put together the motley crew of cowboys, robots, Sasquatch, the Loch Ness Monster, a train Transformer-type dude, and a lovely lady of the evening in [...]

    4. As a fan of Doug TenNapel, I cannot resist looking for more graphic novels by him and found Iron West at the library one day. I often do not know what to expect with his work as it takes on a life of its own quickly. Iron West combines living machines with the Wild West in a crazy fun adventure that also involves Bigfoot and a giant train monster. For once, this one is also a little less appropriate for kids, with a couple of more naughtiness, but still full of adventure. I'd say most middle sch [...]

    5. A rugged, old west cowboy hero, Struck, robs banks, cheats at poker, lies to women with promises of marriage, and runs away at any hint of trouble. Yeah, this bad boy is a real charmer. Still when some old prospectors dig up robots, who in turn dig up a whole army of metal men, who go on a rampage to kill humans, he comes to the rescue of his woman and his town. Of course he has to, he’s set for a hanging and the sheriff gives him no choice but to help or to hang. Our hero, Struck , has some h [...]

    6. Doug TenNapel has a talent for making the inordinately strange seem perfectly normal in each story he writes. The premise for Iron West is:A selfish, two-bit hustler in the wild west of the late 1800’s happens upon an alien robot race that seeks to wipe humanity off the map. With the help of a Sasquatch, a Native-American medicine man, and his “lady of the night” girlfriend, he reluctantly saves humanity (or at least the town) – oh and somewhere in there the Loch Ness monster gets involv [...]

    7. Cowboys & Sasquatch & the Loch Ness monster vs. some sure-shot robots in the Old West. The tone is simultaneously menacing and comedic, like the Apple Dumpling Gang crossed with the Terminator. TenNapel's robots are bolted together like a fondly remembered W.W. Denslow illustration of the Tin Man, or one of Joel Robinson's bots. The story might have something to say about antiheroes or the nature of the industrial revolution (one mega-robot fashions himself out of train cars), but on the [...]

    8. I wish I could give this a higher rating, it might have really been a 2 1/2, I mean, old west, robots, how could I not like it, right? But Tennapel usually grounds these stories in better developed more identifiable characters, and I felt like that wasn't here. More like an afterthought.The art though, as always with Tennapel, was great, just really detailed in the right way, especially for this story.

    9. Every bit a Tennapel book as Earthboy Jacobus, this tale of a gambler who comes face to face with faith in a whole different set of ways, leads me to believe the great art and interesting action are ancillary to a story actually worth reading, a rarity in comics these days.

    10. Wow my first (adult?) Doug TenNapel graphic novel??? It had a lot of violence (shooting) and a few innuendos. The illustrations are the same Doug TenNapel style and there is a moral to the book so I'm happy.Preston Struck is an outlaw of sorts. He is a Wanted man, for petty robberies and lying. A gang of bounty hunters find him in town playing and cheating at cards. Struck makes a run for it the slippery weasel and finds himself face to face with a mechanical gang of outlaws. They take over the [...]

    11. So I love Doug's art and work, but I had some kinda weird feelings about this one, mostly related to jokes that played a bit racist (can we not on the homophobic jokes too?), not a lot of fleshing out, and poor pacing. His art is even more beautiful, however, and my love of robots, cryptids, and cowboys was enough to make it enjoyable. But he still did cover illustrations for my favorite ska band, so there you go. I like his art.

    12. Really nice, and fun, black and white art. Gritty but clear inking throughout.Interesting, sometimes whacky story. It's definitely paced entertainingly enough that I'll return to it sooner than most other standalone comics.

    13. Pretty decent sci-fi western, with steampunk elements, some nice moments of quirky humor and some imaginative out-of-the-blue scenes. Thin on plot however, and lacked the emotional impact. The sequential art is cool as can be expected by Doug TenNapel.

    14. I took some time to read Iron West by Doug TenNapel. It is a graphic novel set in the old west. The style of the story is very tongue in cheek. The drawing is a bit different. Doug TenNapel uses a very loose style with very wide brush strokes. I liked the storyline far better than the art. It is very cartoonish. The drawings contain a lot of humor. It is cowboys versus robots. The robots are replacing people. It is rather silly to look at robots with sixguns. There is also a sasquatch and an old [...]

    15. I read Iron West by TenNapel in an hour or so. It’s a graphic novel set in the West where alien robots attack after greedy miners delve too deep. Preston Struck, a liar and cheater who runs from trouble, is being arrested before he’s pulled into duty to help defeat the murderous robots. These robot cowboys are controlled by an orb called the Demiurge. Ms. Sharon, a saloon girl, is Struck’s love interest, and Two Rivers is a native American who helps Struck along with Sasquatch. There’s e [...]

    16. This is a guy I'd never heard of until I started looking at books for this class. This one I read for the robots, but didn't end up liking it so much. With comics, a big part of the appeal is the style of the illustrations and these were just too cartoony. It did remind me a lot of The Adventures of Brisco County Jr and the video game The Curse of Monkey Island, with their version of wacky humor, non-conventional male lead, and genre mashup. Not my teacup, but I'm still going to give one of his [...]

    17. (Star rating is probably 3.5)So, this was interesting. Entertaining, yes. Coherent? Meh, not so much, but a good read nonetheless. Lot of good one-liners and references. The art was good, very stylized, and I didn't have a problem with the basic premises (which include robots, cowboys, Sasquatch, and the Loch Ness Monster). If anything, it felt too rushed. No character development or real story, aside from the very basic plot line. It was exactly what it was intended to be, though, so can't crit [...]

    18. From the guy who created Earthworm Jim, this is a western with robots - not really steampunk in the standard sensibilities, but maybe Ironpunk?It's one of those stories that the strength of the tale are the small things - the witty banter, the expressions, the somewhat cliched characters that are fun/endearing enough that you get to like them regardless (and that's not a knock on Doug - I rather suspect he made the characters cliches for that very reason.)More than anything, this is a fun tale. [...]

    19. This is an odd, yet wonderfully fun story. Killer robots have been uncovered and activated in the old west, leaving outlaw Preston Struck right in the middle of it. Although this is a short story, I found it very enjoyable. This, unlike TenNapel's Ghostopolis, hits the themes wonderfully. The themes of redemption and the sanctity of life are found in the story, and reach a good depth. On top of that, the story is just plain fun. TenNapel did a great job at making a story that involves robots, Sa [...]

    20. I really enjoyed this graphic novel. Yes it has Robots in the old west and I really didn't mind. In fact in my science fiction class I recall a friend requesting a story similar in high school, so there was a little novelty there for me. The story had some underlining cultural myths that I would have liked to have debunked. However, cultural sensitivity aside, I really enjoyed it. I might not run out and buy it but, I don't regret spending my time on this library check out.

    21. Amazingly enough, another graphic novel sort of in the same genre as Daisy Kutter. It's a legitimate science fiction western graphic novel. I wasn't all that impressed by the artwork, but the story was good, and it was a lot of fun to read.The story left MANY things unexplained by the end, and the main character's change of heart was a little sudden. On the other hand, nobody could have been as big a weasel as he made himself out to be

    22. I love this guy he has written so many great book/graphic novels and I each and everyone. Pickup anyone of his book for a great treat, no can't go wrong with any of then. The illustration are also out of this worldill trying to get two of his older graphic novels guess I am going to have to settle for used, but like new, this is going to costs more then new already. So if you are luck enough to find one do pass it by.

    23. Just too crazy of a story line. Miners unearth alien metal ball that spawns/mines an army of metal men. Their goal is to kill people.Meanwhile a fleeing criminal runs into them. They attack his town.Yada Yada Yada he gets the girl and saves the town with the help of Sasquatch and a medicine man.My 7th grader could barely follow the story, it was so odd he thought he didn't. But he actually did.The Loch Ness Monster also makes an appearance.

    24. I liked the black and white art ofIron West, but the book as a whole wasn't anything special. Even though it contained robots, it was filled with a bunch of Western tropes; the characters weren't developed or likeable; and it wasn't very funny. Others might like this more than I did, if they're fans of old-timey cartoons (think Rocky and Bulwinkle era) or intentionally campy westerns (e.g. that Jane Fonda Cat something show).

    25. This is a great book about how a wanted fugitive in the old west comes across an ancient race of robots, and how he defeats them with the help of a really old guy and his sasquatch sidekick. The illustrations are great and drawn in a cartoonish art style and the ink by TenNapel is great. I really like how this comic is made in black and white and it really adds to the story.This is a great graphic novel done by Doug TenNapel and is definitely one that any graphic novel fan should read.

    26. This just sucked, honestly. I could probably give it more than one star, but it was such a pain to read. The artwork was unimpressive, and the storyline was straightforward and boring. There was a lot of action, but seeing as I didn't care who won, it wasn't enough. The character development was sloppy, and I'm not going to read anything else by this author!
