Quietly, from Afar : A Dark-Comedy Cartoon-Western
Fed up with his dead-end job at the slaughterhouse, our "hero"-later dubbed "Mayor Pistolface"-decides to take a stab at living the life of the American cowboy. With no more than a secondhand pistol, a bag full of loose hot dogs and an asthmatic horse, Mayor Pistolface ventures off into the unforgiving Wild West to fight his way up the ranks to become cowboy legend, but his romantic notion of what it means to be a cowboy is quickly dissolved. In the Wild West, where tourists are eaten alive and wicked men prosper, there's no place for romance. Quietly, From Afar is the comic tale of insatiable greed and megalomania in the barren desert wastelands of the distant American West. Cover design by Mikey Heller.
