    Default Did the comic books medium create anything truly unique in the Western genre?

    One that does not involve magical or supernatural powers aside from the usual action movie super shooting skills.

    Blueberry by Jean-Michel Charlier and Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

    It's a famous Belgian series, but it's all been translated to English. The main draw is Moebius' artwork.

    Depends on just how unique "Truly Unique" has to be.

    Grenadier manga created something unique in the Western genre. It has been later adapted to anime. I recommend it.

    Secret Six by Siomne had one western themed issue, did not make it a Western comic.
