Like most people, former detective Daniel Wise is just trying to survive in the harsh conditions of Los Angeles. However, modern day society has been set back nearly a century due to the terrorist detonation of a powerful electro–magnetic pulse, which has knocked out all electricity and computer components in a thirty–mile radius. Los Angeles is now the New West, where horses are precious commodities and the only lawmakers are the guys with the guns. Lavishly painted in the spaghetti western style of the 1960s, The New West is Black Bull’s two–part action/adventure series from the minds of Jimmy Palmiotti and Phil Noto, creators of Beautiful Killer.
