The tragic tale of the cowboy Solo Joe.
“Solo Joe” by Austin Hughes.
The first panel introduces a cowboy sitting at a bar, looking down at the whiskey glass in front of him. “The name’s Solo Joe,” he mutters.
“I’ve wandered all ’round these here lands,” he explains, as he confidently rides his horse through several panels depicting a desert, an ocean, outer space, and some mountains.
“‘n yet…,” Joe continues, while riding his horse under intense sunlight.
The next panel zooms closely in on his face, where a tear is falling down his face. “The one thing I can’t seem to tie down-,” he begins.
“-is somewhere to call home,” he concludes dramatically in the last panel, as the tear from the previous panel falls into his whiskey.
