Well it didn't work out for Mike Deodato. But for Chuck Dixon, it seems to have gone rather well. Dixon has written for Tex, the hugely popular Italian Western comic from Sergio Bonelli Editore.
This is the first time an American has written Tex. Indeed, the only non-Italian to date was the Spanish writer Antonio Segura.
Quite an honour. Dixon posted,
I don't know who's drawing the story. I only know they liked it and want to talk to me about future projects. It's a 32 page story that mostly features Kit. My dream is write one of their big honkin' "feature length" epics.
Good time to be Chuck. His Levon's Night novels are doing rather well on Amazon….
