When most people today hear the name Wyatt Earp, they think of Hollywood and stars like Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell. But those movies end where our story begins, after the famous “Gunfight At The OK Corral,” for which he’s most famous. Did you know that after leaving Tombstone, Arizona, America’s most famous lawman roamed the American West for nearly fifty more years in search of his fortune and glory?
It’s true! After swearing off a career in law enforcement, he was a saloon owner, a horse racer, a card dealer, a gold miner in Alaska and even had a brief, but controversial career as a boxing referee! But everywhere he went, no matter what he did, he couldn’t shake his famous reputation. And sometimes, a good reputation can be your worst enemy. The Further Travels of Wyatt Earp is a five issue full-color digital comic book series by me and artist Scott Koblish (Marvel Adventures, Wolverine: First Class, World’s Finest) that looks at what Wyatt’s life might have been like in those later years.
