NYCC | Shaolin Cowboy returns from Dark Horse

Shaolin Cowboy

Hey, what’s with the turtle? Where’s the mule?

Ahem. At the New York Comic Con this weekend, Dark Horse Comics announced that it will bring Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy back into print next year. The book was last published by the Wachowski Brothers’ Burlyman Entertainment in 2007.

Shaolin Cowboy told the story of an unnamed, exiled monk and his talking mule, Lord Evelyn Dunkirk Winniferd Esq. the Third. Dark Horse is planning a three-issue series next year, which they describe as “a loaf of wry in a wonder bread world, a nicotine patch in a ten pack-a-day universe. He wonders as he wanders through a world where yesterday, today and tomorrow exist in a collage of carnage of his own making!” As you can see in the image above, it’s Darrow doing what he does best.

“Geof Darrow’s relationship with Dark Horse goes back to the early days of the company. I can’t tell you how excited I am to again be publishing his amazing work” said Mike Richardson, Dark Horse president, in a press release. “Geof’s art literally stopped me in my tracks when I first met him more than two decades ago and his work is every bit as stunning today. Geof has influenced a generation of artists and I am proud and excited to have him back partnered with Dark Horse.”

Fuckin’ A!

Hoping one day I can have a nice big hardcover collecting all the issues sitting on my shelf.

Great news!

Best news of NYCC’11 for me!!!

[And YES Scud @the oversized HC of all issues]

Course the French already got the Burlyman issues in European sized hardbacks which have also gone out of print:

I don’t want Shaolin Cowboy in oversized hardback – I want all his works in that format! Bourbon Thret etc.

Hopefully Furry Water from Rafael Grampa will touch down next year at Dark Horse too.

I’ve got tha Pannini editions of The Shaolin Cowboy.
They do not include issue 7.
Larger format rules!!!

Did Geoff give an aproximate release date for the Dark Horse issues?

were the covers to the Panini edtions exclusive to France? dont recognize the images…
