Description

In 1991, long before the release of the film "Brokeback"" Mountain," two gay cowboys appeared in comic strips of Brazilian newspapers. Rocky and Hudson were the first to show that not everything in the Wild West was gunfights, saloons, and high jinks on trusty steeds--there was room for poetry, flowers, parties, and romance. Illustrated in a style reminiscent of underground cartoonists of the 1960s, this book is a collection of the madcap comic strips that turned the familiar trope of the Old West on its ear.show more
