A couple of years ago, just for the fun of it, I started a daily, black & white comic strip called "Quixote Coyote". It was fun, and I got some good responses. I kept it going for awhile, but then the Wedding, the Move, and the Adjustment got in the way. I discontinued the strip. Quixote Coyote didn't get lost though. I folded him into my comic series "7 Worlds", where he and his friends continue to be very popular. And they get to have their adventures in Color, so that's a plus.
As you probably know, I'm once again working on the impossible task of trying to make a living as a Comic Book Creator. Specifically, I would like to make a living off of TORC Press, although I'm not making that my sole focus. When I resumed my mountain climb, one of the first things I did was reinstate my Patreon. Needing content for the Patreon in hopes that people would pledge to it, I started putting up reruns of the old Quixote Coyote Black & White strips. But after a couple of weeks, the Business Man in me (hahahaha!) thought, "I shouldn't revive the Quixote Coyote strip unless there's an audience for it". So, I set a Goal on the Patreon, that if I got enough Monthly Pledges to get to $20 (approximately the cost to produce the strip weekly), then I would resume the strip.
But some time has passed and I've kinda found myself missing the strip. Mei wants me to at least finish the "Three Nights in a Haunted House" story. The Business Man in me has already started to run out of steam, and the Artist with the Burning Heart has been getting louder lately. I kinda want to resume the strip, even if the Patreon isn't even near my Goal. But, I don't want to resume it if there's no audience for it. If the strip makes people happy, then I would be happy to pick it back up again, although I'll probably just run it on Monday and Friday (kinda like how Terry Flippo runs his awesome strip "Axel & Alex") (unless I meet my Patreon goal, in which case I'll run it Monday THROUGH Friday).
So, long story short, if you like the Black & White "Quixote Coyote" strip, let me know, either here on the Blog, or on Facebook, or through email or whatever. If ten people enjoy the strip and want to see it return, I'll bring it back. Simple as that.
