A satirical and subversive take on the Wild West. In 1991, long before the release of the film Brokeback Mountain , two gay cowboys appeared in comic strips of Brazilian newspapers. Rocky and Hudson were the first to show that t everything in the Wild West was gunfights, saloons, and high-jinks on trusty steeds -- there was room for poetry, flowers, parties, and romance. Illustrated in a style reminiscent of underground cartoonists of the 1960s, this book is a collection of the madcap comic strips that turned the familiar trope of the Old West on its ear.
