While giving away free copies of El Bigote: A Tequila-Drenched Reckoning, I received a surprise email from none other than Shaky Kane requesting a comic. Thankfully, he liked the comic enough to really get behind the project and help out - with the cover for issue 2, El Bigote: 13 Dead Federales!

And here is El Bigote, for the first time drenched in ghoulish color (courtesy of Matthew Soffe). How can someone possibly see this on the comics rack and pass A Tequila-Drenched Reckoning up?

El Bigote letterer Bolt-01 is no slouch when it comes to the art-quills - here's his pinup of a somewhat melancholy El Bigote, which will appear on the back interior cover of 'A Tequila-Drenched Reckoning'.
Although Bolt's official position on the El Bigote team is that of "letterer", he deserves as much (or more) credit for the comic as anyone else - myself and artist El Chivo included. Without his wealth of industry knowledge (he manages and edits four titles of his own, under the FutureQuake banner), Chi and I would probably be creating El Bigote solely 'for fun'; Bolt was the first person to give the project a real vote of confidence, and has since gone on to act as advisor and editor, design all the logos and interior blurb pages and assist in preparing the comic for print (news on that veeerrry soon).
To put it poetically, Bolt is to the El Bigote team what the Undead Ostrich is to El Bigote (ha ha).
