bce28

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Geof Darrow Unveils New ‘Shaolin Cowboy’ Cover And Upcoming Art Book ‘Lead Poisoning’

Lead Poisoning: The Pencil Art of Geoff Darrow, Dark Horse Comics

If you've been suffering from a lack of Geof Darrow in your life, then folks, I have some very good news. In addition to the current Shaolin Cowboy mini series Who'll Stop The Reign, for which we have an exclusive look at the cover for issue #2 below, Dark Horse is publishing an oversized 128-page art book in July reprinting some of Darrow's best wort. But unlike most art books, there's a bit of a twist.

Rather than presenting readers with finished pieces, Lead Poisoning: The Pencil Art Of Geof Darrow is stripping away inks and colors to show Darrow's intricate, incredibly detailed pencils, lifted from the work he's done at Dark Horse for over 20 years.

10 Forgotten Comics From Real Musicians [Music Week]

Dark Horse/Bongo/Dynamite

Music and comics have a long history of influencing one another, whether it’s story titles borrowing lyrics, band names taken from dialogue, or that one time that Matt Fraction had a Britney Spears analogue punch a bear in The Order. Sometimes, though, that connection goes beyond nods and winks, and a band or artist releases their very own licensed comic.

It happens more often than you probably realise. It’s no secret that, say, My Chemical Romance have their own official comic. (A comic, lest we forget, featuring a villainous cravat-wearing Grant Morrison.) But there are plenty of other artists with comics you may have never even known existed. Artists like, oh, I don’t know…

Geof Darrow Announces The Return Of ‘Shaolin Cowboy’

Shaolin Cowboy by Geoff Darrow

I like to think that my tastes fall into pretty broad categories like "superhero" or "adventure stories," but if you get right down to it, my favorite genre of comics has to be "a comic where someone fights a shark with multiple chainsaws." The ambiguous clause there is intentional, I'm equally interested if it's the person or the shark who has the chainsaws.

Either way, that extremely narrow, extremely awesome genre is exemplified by Geof Darrow's Shaolin Cowboy, a book that's light on plot and heavy on atmosphere, style, and highly detailed and extremely over the top fight sequences. And now, after a few years absent, it's finally making its return with a new series: Shaolin Cowboy: Who'll Stop The Reign?

Take To The Skies With ‘Angel Catbird Volume 2: To Castle Catula’ [Preview]

AC0

One of the big sleeper hits of last year was Margaret Atwood, Johnnie Christmas and Tamra Bonvillain's Angel Catbird, which saw the acclaimed novelist test the comics waters with the first in a series of graphic novels about a man who can turn into a cat-bird.

While an odd premise for one of Canada's most celebrated authors, Angel Catbird was widely hailed as a successful comics debut, and next month sees the publication of the second volume, and Dark Horse has provided a preview in celebration of National Bird Day. (Which is today, in case you don't have that circled on your calendar.)
