Dark Horse To Publish Geof Darrow’s Complete SHAOLIN COWBOY Odyssey In Paperback for the First Time

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, 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 and created the iconic and blood-soaked character the Shaolin Cowboy, cartoonist Geof Darrow is one of the most influential and revered cartoonists. 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, his designs for television (including Super Friends, Richie Rich, and Pac-Man) and films (including The Matrix and Speed Racer), 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.
