Despite using an existing story, Nate Bowden presents us with a thrilling page turner leaving me surprisingly impressed. No idea if this was a fault of the artist, Doug Dabbs, or if this advanced copy had a few kinks to work out.

Holliday by. Nate Bowden (Writer), Doug Dabbs (Artist).

Doug Dabbs, who recently celebrated the release of Holliday (Oni Press), his collaboration with writer Nate Bowden. Nate supplied a brief description for all of the major characters in the book. The creative team's project is a modern-day noir-ish reworking of the town of Tombstone and the distinctive life of Doc Holliday. Thrown into the mix is Wyatt Earp, Curly Bill and, of course, a standoff. Following that, I pretty much had free reign to the design of the characters. However, it's still a collaboration to tell a story, which I love, so I wanted his feedback on the designs.

Tombstone is not the town you think it is — this gritty, urban landscape has more in common with metropolises like Chicago or New York than the tiny towns that litter the Western genre. But Doc Holliday is still Doc and tragedy is still his destiny. In the tradition of Antony Johnston and Brett Weldele's Julius comes a modern reinterpretation of an American legend firmly stuck between the righteous and the corrupt.

Wish I could say I loved this but I can’t, I’m a huge fan of tombstone and looked for related reading. This is to different to be the same story. It’s also a comic which I would have given a chance if the story line weren’t so different. It’s a strange mixture of old West and modern times, and it doesn’t quite mesh well in its given media. If it were a well written novel it might have flowed better or made more sense to me.

I love Doc Holliday. Have since I was 8 years old, and almost every fiction and non-fiction book about him has crossed my palm since then. I've been to the place he was born, the place he died, and a lot of places in between.

What I'm saying is I've read a myriad of terrible novels.

And, to be honest, I was expecting the same from this. Most Holliday novels ae roundly awful, in new and exciting ways every time. I pre-ordered this, because I knew I had to read it, but my expectations were low.

Boy, was I wrong. There's so much to love about this novel. The gritty illustrations are a perfect noir-esque backdrop for the story, which is essentially a retelling of the O.K. Corral, which is the standard choice for Holliday novels, but it seems different here, removed from the trappings of the Old West. While this might seem an odd choice, it allows the brutality or the situation to be revealed, and makes all of the characters somehow more human. The replacement of Johnny Ringo with Johanna Ringo is inspired, and the replacement of Doc's consumption with AIDS feeds into the modern twist. I appreciated the fair treatment of Kate in this novel, who is so often portrayed as useless or awful. By contrast, this novel gives a fair balance between the two of them, and that alone endeared it to my heart. Between the smoky dialogue and the illustrations that occasionally steal the show, I just adored it. The only Doc Holliday novel I've liked better, of the many that I have read, is Doc: A Novel, but that has hundreds more words to make its point, while this works effectively with far fewer.

If you're a lover of Doc Holliday, westerns, or graphic novels in general, and you're sitting on the fence, let me encourage you to give this a try. I especially recommend enjoying it with a glass of bourbon on hand. Ace-high choice!

This retelling of the Doc Holliday legend, set in a modern urbanized version of Tombstone, features the usual suspects: lawmen Wyatt and Morgan Erp, Doc's classy working girl girlfriend Kate, Ike Clanton and Billy Claiborne. Think there's going to be a shootout at a place with an OK sign?

In this contemporary version, Doc is still a coughing dentist who gambles and drinks, but he's traded in his horse for a car and suffers from AIDS rather than consumption. The Erps get credit for fighting a war against drugs when they're shaking down the dealers -- including Ike Clanton -- for money and drugs that they can consume themselves. The story has a degree of depth that is uncommon for the medium. It doesn't stop with the shootout but continues to explore the dark aspects of the characters: corruption, jealousy, vengefulness ... pretty much all the seven deadly sins and a few more.

The writing is on fire: sharp, poignant, and honest. The artwork is dark and brooding, filled with shadows. It's well-suited to the gritty story. I particularly like the panels that are sort of fuzzy, reflecting the fuzzy memory of a witness recounting events. Both the writer and the artist deserve kudos for this impressive work.

Reason for Reading: I'm interested in the original story.

Very brutal violent rendering of the Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp and the shooting at the OK Corral story re-situated as a modern day tale of urban gang warfare. Drawn in stunning, stark, shadowy black and white the art matches the atmosphere perfectly in this tale of dentist turned gunman, Doc Holliday. Personally, I'm not an expert on this story only having seen a few old Westerns and did a bit of google research after reading the book to see whether the tale portrayed here held with history. The book makes a vividly real presentation of these legendary figures, Holliday and the Earp Brothers, by today's standards as modern urban gangsters. Memorable moments are retained but modernized, Doc doesn't have tuberculosis but AIDS, they don't fight at the OK Corral but at a street sign "OK". This is a well done re-imagining of an old tale. Though not a Western here, fans of the original should still enjoy but so will fans of gritty-noir crime and those who want graphic books that skip the fantasy/sci-fi angle.
