#25 Black Cobra (1)

| November 22, 2010 | 3 Comments

Didn’t plan on revealing these guys, mostly because I wasn’t so keen on the way they originally came out. But, to be perfectly honest, in trying to think up new characters, I kept coming back to the Black Cobra family (you’ll understand in the coming days). Up until now, these have been character descriptions in a document. Today, the characters come to life.

Concept: The Black Cobra/John Saunders (Cowboy) – An expatriate Brit who fought in the Indian Revolution and then moved to the US West to escape the Crown (the Royal British Army will be a thorn in his side) and became a gunslinger/lawman.  His revolvers (called “Venom” and “Fang”) had black cobra design embossed in the handle.

Design: The cobra design is that circle to the right of his head. This character has ties to both Tex Leonis and King Snakeroot. The blue and orange colors will be a recurring motif as we go forward.

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.
