Cowboys and Aliens

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


1873. Arizona.

An era when all a man could count on was his horse and his six-gun, and Indians fought a losing battle with European settlers.

Until somebody else entered the fight—an invader who saw all humans as slaves, and was determined to conquer our world.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 16, 2011 – Rather than a comics adaptation of the much-hyped summer movie, this is a reprint of the 2006 graphic novel from which the filmmakers took a catchy title and a powerful theme: what if space aliens treated all humans the way Europeans treated the Native Americans who were living in the land they coveted? H.G. Wells's The War of the Worlds used the same basic concept back in 1898, but Cowboys drives the point home effectively by beginning with an interstellar warship crashing in 1873 just as an Apache war party is attacking a wagon train of settlers. The glowering aliens have already enslaved other races, but they see Earthlings as too inferior to bother with, a mere nuisance to be exterminated as soon as they can summon the rest of their fleet. To thwart the invaders, humans must learn to fight together. Rosenberg's high-concept idea is developed adequately by Foley and Van Lente's script and Calero and Lima's art, but this is essentially just another piece of movie-promotion merchandise.

Cowboys and Aliens

As a "book" it sucked, I was lead to believe it was a book, not a comic book.

Can't see it

This may be an excellent story, but I wouldn't know because the font was very small, and there was no way to make it larger. From what I could see the graphics were well done, but the text.... Too small. Delete

Easy to read, if you know the trick

For those who have been having trouble reading the text in the book, since you cannot change the font size like normal, all you have to do is double tap on the image on the page, and it fills the screen. Thereby increasing the size of the font as viewed on the screen.

Love the artwork, btw.
