November 5, 2008
Mark Robeson drove out from Phoenix today and had me sign two of my books and the Mickey Free issue of True West. Mark said he has read the Mickey Free graphic novel excerpt three times and that he's a huge fan of Tom Horn and loves what we did with the character.

Mark also requested we consider doing a graphic novel on the Arizona Rangers. I made a note to work on this as I have long been a fan of the unsung lawmen in the "transitional West" as Bob Alexander so aptly put it. I wonder what the copyright status of "26 Men—Who Lived To Ride Again" is? I'd love to use that, but I'm not sure who, if anybody, owns the rights to that.

On a related note, today we sent a copy of the Mickey Free issue to a book agent in New York who has requested a look see.

Paul Hutton and I are anxious to get on with the book length version because so many plot points and artwork (above) would not fit in the 20-pages we had for the excerpt.
