Daisy Kutter: the Last Train by Kazu Kibuishi
Yay! A graphic novel that I really liked! Whoo-whoo! This doesn't happen very often, so I'm a little excited. But I got sucked into the work of Daisy Kutter, ex-bad girl. She's in a Western world (that also has robots), but the scenery is very John Wayne-ish. Daisy is actually dressed in layers throughout the book, which is strange for a graphic novel. Usually the feminist part of me freaks out about the gleaming thighs and cleavage. But all that is missing. Instead Daisy decides to accept the challenge of robbing a train that can't be robbed. The owner actually pays her to test his authority. But things start to go wrong. Someone doesn't want her alive. And Daisy is slightly confused about Tom, her ex-partner in crime and now turned sheriff. Read this is you're in need of an adventure!
