The Special with No Name
The Man with No Name, we've all heard of him, we all think we know him. He is Mr. Cool himself, the man who never shaves and never washes his poncho, and still looks better than all the fashion models on the catwalks of Milan and Paris. In this special, we’ll try to identify him, by retracing his origins and describing his history in Four Artists and a Man with No Name. We’ll find out that are there’s more than one Man with No Name, and that there’s even a Man with No Name who actually has a name (but no horse): Django. We meet a nameless operative from a detective agency in San Francisco, who cleans up a boom town run by gangsters; we meet a nameless samurai, roaming the Japanese countryside at the brink of modernity, and we meet No Name’s dirtier brother, a conjuror who can shoot a gun with crushed hands.
Read this special, and you’ll learn everything about No Name you always wanted to know, but were afraid to ask.
