    Painted cover by Leonardo Manco. Written by John Ostrander. Written by Leonard Manco. THE SCOOP: The Wild West explodes in a fully-painted MAX series! THE SET-UP: Following the success of their critically acclaimed BLAZE OF GLORY miniseries, John Ostrander and Leonardo Manco return to bring you a new tale of the Old West more real and raw than any you've seen before. As part of the MAX line, the kid gloves are off and the bullets are flying. Manco's art, shot directly from his colored pencils and watercolors, makes this perhaps the most gorgeous comic of the year. Think you don't like Westerns? Take a look at this and think again. Love Westerns? Prepare to go crazy, because APACHE SKIES is coming at you like a bullet between the eyes! ? THE STORY: A man is murdered. A legend is born. It is 1886. The American Southwest. The original Apache Kid is dead, gunned down in an ambush by a pack of cowards. Now his friend Johnny Bart, the Rawhide Kid, rides the vengeance trail to make the killers pay. But someone else is also hunting those murderers, someone who may have a claim to the title of Apache Kid! And little do they know that another man hunts them all. There are those who will make one last run, one last fight, to stand free and tall in the mountains under the wide blue Apache Skies! ? THE WRITER SPEAKS: "This is a chance to show violence even more realistically," explained Ostrander. "Why is that a good thing? Because showing it sanitised makes it too easy, makes it more glamorous. I want the violence to feel brutal." ? THE FORMAT: Each issue of this four-part, monthly series will be 32 pages, with ads. THE WARNING: Contains explicit content. Recommended for adult readers. Cover price $2.99.
