The whole book will be posted online for anyone to read gratis, so this donation is entirely about supporting an artist who’s creating a story that you can enjoy for years. (Because, seriously, it’ll take a few years to illustrate and post the entire story.)

This project means the world to me and so does your generous support. As a humble gesture of thanks, I’ll be creating some fun behind-the-scenes newsletters with photos, videos, and anecdotes about the story and my process in the studio. And, of course, we’ll be chanting your name around the campfire at Rancho Bizarro.

About Dan "Diego" Piraro

Peyote Cowboy is a graphic novel by Dan Piraro, the creator of the syndicated newspaper cartoon Bizarro. The story follows the adventures of a cowboy through an Old West distorted by magical realism. While escaping unknown pursuers, he is forced into an arduous and baffling quest to find his lost son, guided by a top-hatted skeleton only he can see.

This surreal, sweeping saga is full of drama, humor, and adventure and is rich with social and political satire.

It might sound weird, but the process of writing this story really changed my concepts about creativity. It came to me piece-by-piece, day-by-day and I never knew where it was going until it got there. Since the story felt so much like a gift from elsewhere, I've decided to offer this years-long labor of love as a gift, completely free to anyone. But, as you’ll see, this is an enormous undertaking and will in the end represent several years of my life. If you’re enjoying it and look forward to following the story as it unfolds, please consider contributing a buck or three a month to show your appreciation—you'll be in for several years of an exciting and wild ride through a surreal world you'll wish you could visit.

I’ve intentionally not created donation tiers with extra perks and prizes because I inherently dislike the idea that folks with more money get more cool stuff. Too much of life is already that way. So no matter what level you join at, or if you choose not to join at all, you’ll get the full scope of my creative efforts. Okay, you do get one extra thing for being a patron: a monthly newsletter from me with some behind-the-scenes anecdotes and updates about stuff I'm up to or something. I can't wait to find out! I hope you enjoy Peyote Cowboy and thanks for your support!
