An alien gunslinger with a funny name, par for the course with me.

#6 Deadeye Huitzilo the Vaquero

In the late nineteenth century, a group of gringo treasure hunters popped south of the border hoping to find some fabled Aztec gold. Instead, they left emptyhanded, only leaving about two dozen or so disintered Aztec burial grounds in their greedy wake. One of those tombs was that of the emperor. Shortly thereafter, his sworn protector, Huitzilo felt himself dragged back to the mortal coil only to walk the Earth again, seeking to punish the defilers, even if it takes eternity.
The weapons might be different these days, but brutality never changes.

Sorry it’s not colored & like the others I did. I’m opting to spend the time catching up. If I’ve the extra time, I’ll go back & add them.

On the list of jumping off points I had for characters “cowboy mummy” was a joke but was something I kept going back to trying to rationalize. It suddenly clicked when I figured there was a better chance of an Aztec mummy than your garden variety Egyptian bandaged number wandering the old west; so I went that route. His name is based on Huitzilopochtli, who wikipedia tells me was the Aztec god of war. The word has something to do with hummingbirds, which I thought would also have a cool connotation as to how quick a shot he is, despite rigor & the frailty of a corpse.

My Internet was down yesterday, so I wasn’t able to post an entry. I’ll make up for it with a double-post today.


Day 01: Tom Remix

Hello, everyone! It’s still day one here on the West Coast. I’m starting off my challenge with Tom Remix, named lovingly after the first big western film star, Tom Mix. He’s a neurotic little robot who wishes for nothing more than to become a rodeo star and live out the cowboy lifestyle.

This is of course a side kick to Jeans, who is always helpful but bumbling.  He is very smart and wise to the herder of the ghosts and helps out any way he can to the new human in the range of problems.

They killed his family. Then they killed him. Then he came back.

#3 – “The Widow”

Jane was once a happy wife.  Married to a brilliant engineer, two wonderful (most of the time) kids, and a respectable estate.  But the old west being the wild place it was, that all came crashing down when a posse of men attacked their home.  Jane’s husband was murdered and her children kidnapped.  Now this once pleasant housewife must set out, learn the dirty ways of the west, and save what’s left of her family.
