And now, without further ado, here is Mickey Free: The Graphic Novel as it will appear in the next issue of True West:


As you can clearly see, Mickey Free wears a Navajo-Mexican-US flag-all-stitched-together serape. Meghan wonders if Cowan's Auction House got wind of our creation:

"The biggest surprise of the auction occurred when a late classic Navajo serape hit the auction block. The serape brought in $123,375 to become the highest selling item of the sale. It was estimated to fetch $8/10,000. The high sale price can be attributed to a number of factors including its extraordinary visual aesthetic, condition and age. The serape is circa 1865 with lac and cochineal dyes that are indicative of its age and highly sought after by collectors.

"'Bidding for the serape was fierce and the price soared beyond our expectations,' commented Danica Farnard, Cowan's American Indian art specialist."

Already planning the Mickey Free book. Went over templates this morning with Robert Ray. Anxious to elevate my game, and make the whole project breathe a little better. Gee, I wonder what ol' Waldo has to say about that?

"Life must be lived on a higher plane. We must go up to a higher platform, to which we are always invited to ascend; there, the whole aspect of things changes."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
