Old Red & Big Red Amlingmeyer
Created by Steve Hockensmith
In the Old West" of the 1890s, cowpoke GUSTAV "OLD RED" AMLINGMEYER, having grown way, way too fond of the Sherlock Holmes stories, decides to set himself up as a detective, much to the initial dismay of his kid brother OTTO "BIG RED." But Otto eventually gives in and acts as a sort of fraternal Watson, narrating this quirky, entertaining series. Imagine a mash-up between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove, and you're almost home.
