There are many reasons I wish I had a deeper knowledge of comics, though honestly the most prevalent reason is I hate having to rely on Wikipedia to learn what one is about whenever one pops up into the film world. Most of the time it's not a big deal as the Internet will provide all the info I need to at least understand what a comic's premise is, but the Internet has failed me in regards to the graphic novel Cowboys & Aliens. A mere two sentences on the plot at Wikipedia has repeatedly left me in the lurch whenever Jon Favreau's forthcoming adaptation of Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's series has come up in the past.

Now, thanks to Joblo, we have a far more detailed synopsis for the Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde-starring film:

"1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It's a town that lives in fear.
