Coyote is an American comic book series created by Steve Englehart and Marshall Rogers.

Publication history

The characters first appeared in Eclipse Magazine #2–8. It would later be reprinted in a color trade paperback, I Am Coyote.

Afterwards, a new comic book series started at Marvel Comics Epic Comics line, that ran 16 issues. It was notable for the first published work of Todd McFarlane. According to Epic editor-in-chief Archie Goodwin, artist Steve Leialoha's departure after issue #2 caused deadline problems from which the series never fully recovered, leading to its early cancellation.[1]
