CBR Review: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly #1

I recently reviewed The Good, the Bad and the Ugly #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Polls more than Dixon makes his mark here, providing gorgeous visuals that capture the grit and feel of Leone’s films without actually replicating the look, which is an approach that always works better. Too often in works like this, more emphasis is placed on remaining ‘true to the source’ that it lacks any of the depth or feel of the original, but Polls captures that. One way in which he conveys a cinematic feel is in his page layouts as he uses, primarily, page-wide panels stacked upon one another like film stills. He only breaks from this layout briefly to great effect."
