I grabbed this book from a pile of new titles in part because I had one of those horse heads on a stick when I was a kid and seeing the cow boy with this toy modified into a gun made me chuckle. I thought the story was quirky and cleaver, but I was very distracted by the interruptions. I'm not exactly sure what the author was thinking when he decided to include the one or two page mini-comics throughout the story. They didn't seem to add anything to the overall experience. In fact, I found that they took away from the flow of the story and by the end I was skipping them entirely. Overall...I was underwhelmed.
