Welcome aboard.

Not a straight western by any stretch but the nearest you'll get.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Grievous-Journey-Ichabod-Azrael-Dead/dp/1781080305/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1324326119&sr=1-1-spell

Damned fine read too. The second book will be coming in the new year (and I assume will be included when this gets released).

Big fan of Jonah Hex myself by the way.

Have fun.

Welcome to our loving bosom.

Weldome...

Depends if you mean straight western or not...

Apart from Ichabod, there was another western series a while back with demons/vampires? Black and white art. Anyone?

Flesh has cowboys in it (and big dinosaurs)

Stretching it, Strontium Dog has a western feel in a few stories, stranger in a small-town, bountyhunter figure...

Cheers

thanks everyone for the warm welcome.
just finished reading zombo:can i eat you please?.
what a laff that was,an absolute riot.
im now reading cradlegrave and the bendatti vendetta and keep dipping in and out of the judge dredd case files as well as 2000AD and megazine so you could say im finding life in the world of 2000AD pretty sweet.
in reply to Lee Bates,i picked up 2012 through a recommendation of a mate of mine as ive been reading american comics for about 5 years and he asked if id ever looked at 2000AD,i told him i had never tried it so went straight out and snapped it up.needless to say im so glad i did as the stories and art are fantastic.and it was a brilliant jumping on point.really loved judge dredd,absalom,grey area and aquila.ive now subscibed to both mags at my local comic store so im a well happy citizen of mega-city 1.

Missionary Man would be 'western' in a Dredd vibe. Well ya know, deep south and trench coats.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.
