I flicked through this in the shop earlier and was knocked out by the art and visual concepts. So is the story any good? (My guess: no)

The one issue I read: no.

It's sometimes funny though. The first issue takes place over about fifty seconds, so if you're going in looking for "plot" then you're in the wrong place. But the way Darrow paces those fifty seconds is very amusing, and if Joe is "knocked out by the art and visual concepts", then I figure that's all you should really expect from a Geof Darrow comic anyway.

I like the way the horse's incessant moaning has NO IMPACT WHATSOEVER on the cowboy's zen calm

It has an impact on my calm!

Lovely pretty pictures (no surprise there), pointless story (also no surprise). No sane person would buy this expecting decent writing, would they?

Have you noticed that the donkey's rants are written by the Warchowski Brothers? It probably goes some way towards explaining a-hell-of-a-lot of what went wrong with the last two Matrix movies

Only the first-page recaps in each issue.

Awesome, psychotic visual imagery and staging. Writing is fairly meh with moments of sparkly absurdity. Comes out infrequently enough for me to justify the cover price.

okay, got #5 yesterday (AND FORGOT TO BUY FRANKENSTEIN D'OH) and apart from deciding at those two spreads that Shaolin Cowboy roxx0r U r all gay, THANK YOU VERY MUCH Wachowskis for the FIVE DIFFERENT ADS for V For Vendetta in the back! might have missed it if there had only been 4!

The Wachowskis think the V is a Roman Numeral, obviously.
