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.)

bce104

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.

As of late, Conan's comic adventures have been infrequent though glorious. The character created by Robert E. Howard in the '30s is still popular enough to get new stories every now and then however, and the Cimmerian still shows up in other media like films and games as well. In fact, Conan's next comic journey will actually tie into his upcoming video game, Conan Exiles.
