For Immediate Release:
Starting next year, Dark Horse Books will publish Geof Darrow’s Complete SHAOLIN COWBOY Odyssey In Paperback for the first time. This was announced today in this press release:
(August 31, 2020) Since his first appearance sixteen years ago, Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy has been slaughtering zombies, beheading idiots, and leaving a trail of carnage and corpses in his wake. And next year, for the first time ever, Dark Horse Books will publish Darrow’s complete SHAOLIN COWBOY odyssey in paperback. Beginning with the release of SHAOLIN COWBOY: SHEMP BUFFET in April 2021. In total, Dark Horse will release three paperback editions of the Shaolin Cowboy’s adventures, with each book featuring an all new cover by Darrow and Eisner Award-Winning Colorist Dave Stewart.
Having won the Inkpot Award, won (and lost) multiple Eisner Awards, Geof Darrow’s iconic and blood-soaked character the Shaolin Cowboy, has made him one of the genre’s most influential and revered cartoonists. Because, as Vulture says, “no one draws violence quite like Geof Darrow.”
In addition to the chainsaw-fueled adventures of the Shaolin Cowboy, Darrow is renowned for his early work with Moebius, and his designs for television. These include Super Friends, Richie Rich, and Pac-Man. Plus, he has also worked in films that include The Matrix and Speed Racer. This is in addition to his collaborations with Frank Miller and Andrew Vachss, and his iconic and detailed comic book covers. Darrow originally hails from Cedar Rapids, IA and now resides in France.
Darrow’s work has been recognized by many publications over the years:
“Geof Darrow is a living legend in the comic world. One of the few creators working today who can cite Jack Kirby, Alex Toth and his mentor Mœbius as peers.”—PASTE MAGAZINE
“Exhilarating…. The artistry in these pages is incredible.”—AV CLUB
“Beautiful.”—THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Shaolin Cowboy has always been a little on the crazy side. Okay, a lot on the crazy side.”—IGN
“Any new comic day that blesses with an issue of The Shaolin Cowboy is a good day indeed.”—THE NERDIST
