The place: a typical nineteenth century Western town. The time: when men were men - and women didn't have much to do aside from gazing longingly out the window. One day, without warning, a rugged outlaw rides into town, swinging his six guns and stirring up trouble. Meanwhile, an idle young woman gets the notion to outfit herself like a cowboy and make her getaway. Cowboy has all the makings of a classic, if wickedly unconventional, Wild West yarn. Danish cartoonist Rikke Villadsen deconstructs the tired tropes of the Western genre with wild abandon. Villadsen's absurd vision of the old West features exploding prostitutes, menstruating cowgirls, mysterious gender-bending, and much more; when the dust settles, the rip-roaring ride that is Cowboy ultimately reveals itself to be an interrogation into gender identity and queerness.
