Texas Strangers on hiatus

As you've probably guessed by now, TEXAS STRANGERS is sadly on hiatus. Sorry for the lateness of this update, but we've been trying to figure out a way to carry on - unfortunately, a number of different things have happened that make it impossible for us to continue publishing issues at the moment.

Nobody is more upset about this than us. We all love the characters, and there's still a lot of story left to tell. And we know those of you who read the first two issues want more, because you told us!

So this wasn't a decision we took lightly. We're still looking at different ways to continue the story, and get it into people's hands. If we succeed, we'll of course post here and let everyone know. 

But for the foreseeable future at least, Wyatt, Madara, Rick and the others are hanging up their spurs.

Comic store order code: FEB071917

Meet the cast: Tula Roadwalker

Name: Tula Roadwalker
Birthplace: Texas
Age: 70
Career: Texas Ranger
Residence: The Ghost Ranch, TSHQ
Likes: Texas, Zog, animals, Sally
Dislikes: Being called a "Stranger", evil and that's about it.
Ambition: Tula hopes to one day be accepted by his people.

Tula Roadwalker raised himself.

Tula has pretty much grown with the Free Nation of Texas, having lived through both the Civil War and the Azteca War that gave Texas its independence. But that's about all he knows of his past. He says that he was saved by the gods as a child, from an Azteca raiding party. He had to fend for himself, learning English from travelers and any townspeople that would take pity on him. No one is quite sure how he learned to use such powerful Wild Magic, or why other Elves shun him and call him unclean...

Tula's only friends are also Strangers, as most townsfolk are wary of the Elves - and the Elves want nothing to do with him.
