"This compelling graphic novel comes from Mark Lee Gardner’s Spur-award-winning Shot All to Hell: Jesse James, the Northfield Raid, and the Wild West’s Greatest Escape. Gardner and Nate Olson adapted the book. Olson also provided stunning artwork, while Nic Chapuis added arresting colors. This collaboration is so eye-pleasing that readers will flip through the pages again and again. The story is told in a documentary style, with times, dates and locations adding realism to the almost tactile illustrations of the “most famous bank robbery in Western history” and the epical retreat of the James-Younger Gang into the nightmarish Big Woods of Minnesota. Oversized, hard-hitting and impressive."
