From the moment I read Brokeback Mountain I loved it, but like a lot of people, it bothered me that Jack & Ennis didn't achieve a happy ending .
I'd had a coupl'a characters I'd been doodlin' separately for several years, K.C. Hollins a retired rodeo clown & EuEarl Bedfords a former truck driver, but I had no definite story in mind. It was maybe the millionth re-reading of BBM in 2004 that I hit on the idea of bringing the two characters together & have 'em fall in love. And DESPITE the obstacles they face, they manage, Insist in fact,on their Life Together !
Hence, was MUDFLAP USA born....
