BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
As if Comic-Con International attendees didn’t have enough on their dance cards, here’s one more thing: Geof Darrow is debuting his “first-ever” published sketchbook in San Diego. Titled DMFAO, this limited-edition book is a mix of covers, commissions and rarely seen artwork Darrow has produced recently for U.S., European and Japanese publications. DMFAO will be available at Darrow’s booth (#5000), but he has no plans to sell it online or by mail-order.
Darrow got his start in comics with another art collection (a portfolio of prints) with Moebius in 1984 called La Cité Feu. Darrow met Moebius while the French artist was working on 1982’s Tron, and ended up being introduced to Frank Miller at Moebius’ home, which led to several collaborations over the years.
The artist is in the middle of a return to comics with new Shaolin Cowboy stories at Dark Horse, and he’s creating covers for Marvel’s Deadpool. Here’s a full look at DMFAO‘s cover, along with some recent work Darrow has put online:
