Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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. (June)

Cowboys and Aliens 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 17 reviews.

This is more a Novella than a book and a good one to. It is far to short to do the job. It is not without competition. Cowboys & Aliens written after the movie is really good and takes the time and space to tell the story. My conclusion is that you need to get both of them so that you do not loose any of the story.

In 1873 an alien spacecraft commanded by Commander Dar of the House of Dar crashes in the Arizona Territory. Dar sees an opportunity so he leads his army on an attack on Fort Larrabie. The easy victory coupled with the occupation of Silver City affirm Dar's belief that his race can conquer this backwater planet with ease and that the earthlings probably do not even deserve slave status, but the few surviving will be placed in servitude. As soon as the rest of the armada arrives earth will be history. Dar fails to understand the strange bedfellow resistance movement that suddenly comes to life when Zeke and Miss Verity make a deal with the Apaches War Hawk and No-Name. Abetting the outgunned humans is emerald-skinned female slave of Dar, Kai, who defects to what looks like the losing side. Zeke and Kai are attracted to one another as is War Hawk and Verity too. Guerilla warfare and Apache attacks have Dar reeling but a weaseling Quisling sells out the humans. As the top of the cover states: "The graphic novel that inspired the film"; ergo this is a reprint of the 2006 comic rather than a novelization of the movie. The action-packed story line is a fun rendition of Starships Troopers and War of the Worlds with the iconic twist that the Apache were about to battle the white invaders when the ship crashed. Although there is some idealistic naivety that the alliance would survive in victory or defeat rather than the post realism of the allies' schism after WWII (in victory) or crushed morale (in defeat), readers will enjoy this fine western science fiction thriller.

It's okay. Book source ~ Library It’s 1873 in Arizona and Zeke and his partner are protecting a caravan trying to reach their destination of Silver City. Attacked by Indians, Zeke rides off to the Fort for help only to find aliens are taking over. Not a bad graphic novel. Art is ok and story is also ok. As far as being like the movie though, other than having aliens and cowboys it is nothing like the movie. Yes, I saw the movie when it came out. Hello. Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford? How could I not. Besides, the kids wanted to see it. We went, we saw, we were entertained. When I saw the graphic novel in the library I decided it was a must read to revisit the movie. Then I read it and was like, huh. Ok. I ended up returning it to the library before I wrote the review and I can’t remember the names of anyone else in it. So, I was slightly entertained by it and then almost completely forgot about it.
