We’ve gone Cow Boy crazy here on Pipedream Comics this month. With its brilliant mix of true grit and dryer than sasperilla wit, its been one of the most original books we’ve read in ages, and what’s even better is its all digital! Despite there only being a handful of pages posted on cowboycomic.net, it earned a spot on our Pipedream Pull List for last week and so I got in touch with artist Chris Eliopoulos and writer Nate Cosby to find out just how people are reacting to the adventures of Boyd the Bounty Hunter and what is next for the Boy and his Horse!
The great thing about digital comics is that there isn’t one way to publish your story. Whether you’re distributing through a major company and keeping to a strict monthly schedule or you’re self-publishing online and releasing it whenever you feel is right, there’s no hard and fast rule about how best to release your work to the public.One prime example of doing things differently is the brilliant Cow Boy from Chris Eliopoulos and Nate Cosby. We spoke to Chris back in August when Cow Boy was still in it’s infancy and so it’s great to see it finally appearing online, and it really has been worth the wait. Chris and Nate have taken the bold step of offering pages from Cow Boy free on their site cowboycomic.net while also offering dedicated readers the option to pre-order a hard cover print edition which will be published by Archaia Press.
