About this project

This project was born from 2 necessities:

1) The necessity for more diversity and new perspectives in comics.

2) The necessity for old fashioned westerns that can appeal to a modern audience.

The team behind this book is a truly multi cultural, multi national group of the most talented artists and letters.

Having the main character be a Native American woman (not the gun toting Cowboys we are used to seeing in westerns) gives this comic a unique style and voice. Don't be mistaken though, this is still a pure western tale, stand off at high noon included. A big inspiration for the main character comes from my own Native American heritage.

Gray Coyote is a 4-issue mini series about a Native American woman, Nita, who wanders the harsh landscape of the old west searching for meaning after losing her tribe. She is inadvertently drawn into a conflict between ruthless outlaws and the citizens of a small town.

The Art:

Here is a sample page done by Jethro Morales.

The Team:

We are a multi national, multi cultural team.

The Artist, Jethro Morales - A genuine talent from the Phillipines.

The Letterer, Kuen Tang - A lovely and inspiring woman of Chinese decent.

The Writer, Travis Alexander - A friendly and eager man with Native American heritage.

The Promo Artist, Diego Toro - An amazingly hard working man from Chile.

There is no better team working on a book that features a leading character who is a woman of color.

Both the cover (pictured at the top) and the promo art (pictured below) have been made into posters to be given as a reward for pledging.

The Pitch:

All of the money earned from this campaign will go towards paying the artists and letterer to finish the series. I will not be personally profiting from this campaign other than to see my lifelong dream of writing and publishing a comic book come to be.

The campaign goal is the total cost for finishing the book, as well as printing and shipping costs.

Even if you are not able to support personally, please share this with anyone who you think would love a good comic book, or even just a good old fashioned western.

Thank you all.

Risks and challenges

Potential Challenges:

To date the remaining 3 issues have not been completed. The artist is a very reliable person, but there is always a risk of complications.

If any issues arise in the creation, printing, or shipping process everyone will be notified immediately. Delays happen sometimes, but I will personally work to resolve any issues, even if the cost must come from my own pocket.
