Cowboys and Insects has a bright, colourful post-war American style that reminds me of Geoff Darrow and David Aja.

The story features an alternative history where giant mutated insects fuel the post-war American economy and provide a metaphor for Jim Crow discrimination.

As ever violence underpins the American dream and the central character has too choose whether they will conform to expectations and enjoy the benefits of majority rule.

It's quite a dark story but lighter than the source material it's riffing off.
