Comixology Originals released an early look at Trick Pony from writer Greg Lockard and artist Anna David, which arrives digitally on February 28, 2023.
Together Lockard and David tell the emotional story of Jimmy Thomas, a gay rodeo star well past his prime. Jimmy is about to hit rock bottom when he receives an emergency call from his family alerting him that his father is in the hospital. Jimmy decides to head home with his trusty best friend, his horse Emmylou. While on the road he must confront the mistakes of his past, the monsters of his present, and come to terms with his life and future.
“Trick Pony is a project that has been germinating in my head and heart for over a decade,” said Lockard in a press release from Comixology Originals. “It’s a love letter to all my favorite Western stories but through a distinctly modern lens. Jimmy’s adventure is about self-fulfillment on the path to making your dreams come true… and accepting that some shadows are going to follow you for life.”
