    SHAOLIN COWBOY (the comic)

    Not sure if anyone's heard about it but Geoff (the guy how did the visual designs for THE MATRIX and a bunch of other comics) Darrow. has producted a comic called SHaolin Cowboy. it's pretty wacky and fun with some AMAZING art...

    Issue 2 is out but I'm sure with a little effort issue one can also be found.

    anyone else check it out?

    All right now, son, I want you to get a good night's rest. And remember, I could murder you while you sleep.
    Hey son, I bought you a puppy today after work. But then I killed it and ate it! Hahah, Im just kidding. I would never buy you a puppy.

    Yeah it's pretty funny.

    The first issue was a bit slow.... more about the art which, if you've never seen it before, is top notch.

    The second issue is pretty 'effing hilarious!!!

    I'd say pick up the 2nd issue... if you like it you can pick up the first for the sake of completion.

    awesome

    Issue 6 was a real horror show. I'm still not sure how SC got there from where it started, but wow, what a dark vision!

    They were swallowed by the giant reptile that rose from the ground in issue 5.

    Yeah, I guess Geoff Darrow's style isn't for everyone... hahah. I've only read Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon from HK Comics. I would definitely like to check out what else they have.

    IMO, when it comes to martial arts comics you can't go wrong with Andy Seto. CTHD is great. So is The Four Constables. Ma Wing Shing is great too.
