The Last Sane Cowboy and Other Stories

    (AiT/Planet Lar, 2007)
™ and © 2007 Daniel Merlin Goodbrey & AiT/Planetlar

A man who bleeds scorpions—literally. A woman looking for her brother, whose path is barred by talking horses, threatening skulls, and a scorpion in a cowboy hat. A girl who can smell the future. These and other offbeat, low-key tales mix humor and drama in a clever, unique collection of stories that feels like something out of a barely remembered dream or nightmare. One minute you’ll be alarmed, then realize it’s okay to just laugh at the insanity of it all.

Writer-artist Daniel Merlin Goodbrey comes up with something in his inky drawings and minimal text that manages to be both familiar and different. It’s not as hard to do as it is do well, and he achieves it.
