Summary
"Return to the real-life days of the wild, wild West where the life was rough... especially for women. The prototypical cowgirl, Calamity Jane was a bona fide frontierswoman, a professional scout, drunk, and sometime whore, doing whatever it took to stay alive in the hardscrabble days of American expansion. Writer Christian Perrissin (El Nłio, Cape Horn) joins forces with Alph-Art-winning artist Matthieu Blanchin to tackle the legend of Martha Jane Cannary and her daring life alongside the likes of Buffalo Bill Cody and Wild Bill Hickok. Presented in English for the first time ever, this graphic novel illustrates the extraordinary tale of an independent woman with gumption -- the incredible Calamity Jane!"-- cover page 4
