The name’s Copes. Marc Copes.
I’m the Mayor ‘round these parts.
Cow Texas is a small, fictional town located somewhere near the definition of funny, and just around the corner from your dad’s favourite joke.
[You] : Hahahahaha. Wait, I don’t get it.
That’s a fancy pants way of saying it’s:
- a free webcomic (reader supported)
- with a modest readership (1,536 subscribers)
- has humble origins (updating since 2009)
… and grand plans for World Domination.
Or Cult Status. To be honest I’d be happy with either.
But I need your help.
The thing is, to realistically take over the world, I need to do it one smile at a time.

I grew up reading Garfield, The Farside and Pearls Before Swine and I can now see how these strips were huge inspirations for my own comic, with their unique humour and gag-a-day format.
Cow Texas is very much a love letter to my childhood heroes.
A letter that I can now send to you.
We live in a wonderful time where the Internet allows a normal guy like me to send my scribblings straight from my kitchen table to your juicy eyeballs. Sometimes I forget just how amazing that actually is.
Writing and drawing these comic strips for the last 10+ years has brought a lot of creative enjoyment to my life. What started off as stick figures in Microsoft Paint has very slowly (but surely) evolved into something I’ve become quite proud of.
For me, creating comics is a perfect storm. I find the challenge of writing humour and discipline of sticking to a release schedule quite addictive. And most importantly, fun.
I hope you enjoy them.
But that’s enough about me. Thanks for reading all the way down here and joining me for the ride. Looking to get in touch? My little friends should be able to help you.
I look forward to drawing the next comic and sending it to you, however you just chose to follow it!
Hugs and donuts,
