Mutant, Texas: Tales of Sheriff Ida Red is a four-issue comic book miniseries created by Paul Dini and illustrated by J. Bone, published by Oni Press in 2002. The stories take place in a mythical West Texas town changed by a release of atomic power and mystic forces.
The lead character is Sheriff Ida Red, a seemingly normal 16-year-old orphan who develops amazing mutant powers. Through her heroism Ida later becomes sheriff of the strange town. Other characters include:
- Ida's armadillo deputy Rollalong Diller,
- Tia Oso (Aunt Bear in Spanish), a bear-woman shaman and Ida's aunt,
- the sultry Mexican cantina owner Mezcal, a humanoid mutated agave plant,
- Clint Saguaro, a cactus-man modeled after Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name character from Sergio Leone's Trilogy,
- the Kiyotes, a family of villainous trailer trash coyotes,
- the diminutive, malapropism-spouting Mayor Lansdale, who is widely thought to be a parody of Ross Perot.
Ida Red first appeared in Oni Double Feature #13, August 1999, the same issue that introduced Dini's Jingle Belle character.
