Shaolin Cowboy: Start Trek Returns to Print
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.
This summer, Dark Horse Books will boldly go where they have never gone before when they publish Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy: Start Trek and bring a classic, hard-to-find masterpiece back into print. Originally published as a seven issue comic book series by Burlyman Entertainment, the story garnered Darrow the Eisner Award in 2006 for Best Writer/ Artist. The Dark Horse Books edition marks the story’s first ever hardcover publication and features a new cover by Darrow and award-winning colorist Dave Stewart and the complete seven-issue saga written and illustrated by Darrow and colored by Pete Doherty, Alex Wald, and Lovern Kindzierski, as well as classic Shaolin Cowboy illustrations by Moebius (Jean Giraud), Richard Delgado, Mike Mignola, Kevin Nowlan, and John Severin.
In Shaolin Cowboy: Start Trek, the Shaolin Cowboy walks the action-packed path of three enemies. Those from the past, who still pursue him, those from the future who are waiting for him, and those from the present who find killing him isn’t going to be as easy as he looks.
Shaolin Cowboy: Start Trek will be published by Dark Horse in comic book stores on July 11 and in bookstores on July 17, 2018 as an 8X10 hardcover retailing for $24.00.
