After thirteen years in prison, a Chinese gunslinger named Kingsway Law just wants to find his wife. But in a fantastical American Old West crackling with magic, monsters, and racist vigilantes, trouble just won’t leave him be. And in this case, trouble is a woman with a magic sword who needs his help.
“The Old West of Kingsway West reflects all of the social, economic and racial conflicts and tensions of the actual Old West—but it's also a world in which magic rather than technology drives much of the upheaval,” Pak told Comic Book Resources. “The whole scenario gives us a chance to think about the actual West in a new way—and maybe imagine entirely new ways for America to be born. And, of course, it's about heroes following their hearts as they make their way through a vast and dangerous frontier.”
Written by bestselling novelist Dave White (the Jackson Donne series of PI novels) and featuring art by artist Szymon Kudranski (Batman: The Dark Knight, Spawn), the series stars Jane Raymond, a 14-year-old high-schooler in suburban New Jersey who idolizes a hero known The Web. Finding herself with mysterious powers much like her idol, Jane's struggle to balance her new life as a superhero while also dealing with family issues will put this new hero to the ultimate test.
