#19 Tex Leonis

| November 16, 2010 | 0 Comments

Another animal humanoid hybrid. I was watching The Good, The Bad and The Ugly a few days ago, when, for some reason, inexplicably, this is what my mind wanted to see; a cowboy lion (or, a “clion” as my wife likes to call him).

Concept: Tex, a feline humanoid, “fell to Earth” in the 1800’s in the West, where he was raised by a Native American tribe. When he came of age, he set out to right wrongs, and joined the “white man’s world.” After a lot of gun duels and dealing with prejudice, he was eventually accepted and named Sheriff of Kappa City where he came across the outlaw hero, the Black Cobra.

Design: Other than the exclusion of a sheriff’s star, do you need any more explanation than this pic?

About the Author ()

I'm not exactly sure what I should put here, so here goes. I'm a writer, written for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, AdHouse Books, and Simon & Schuster, among others and his stories have been reprinted in other countries. Mostly concentrating on creator owned work right now, so the challenge suits me just fine. I live in Queens (Astoria/LIC), NY with my wife, Michelle, and two dogs, Kasey and Kirby. I'm not sure what else needs to be said, but I'm sure I'll keep changing this. Oh, here's something. I contribute to the Project Rooftop site. The RetroFix column was kind of my idea, so I feel like that experience will help me out here.
