Cowboys and cattle stampede into graphic novel world
Every little boy has a dream and for Aaron Mallard, growing up in the Delta region of Arkansas, it was to be a comic book artist. Now a grown man, he’s finally seeing his dream realized and not quite in the way he imagined.
Mallard was commissioned by the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in late 2013 to create a new historically-accurate graphic novel based on the Chisholm Trail.
“This project came through Stacy Moore and I jumped at it,” Mallard shared in a recent interview with the Heritage Center. “I had to read a lot about the Chisholm Trail. I’m not a historian or anything, but I had to have some kind of reference point.”
