Comics Legend Geof Darrow on 109-Page Zombie Fights, Designing The Matrix, and Hating Super Friends

  • Vulture
No one draws violence quite like Geof Darrow, and nothing he’s drawn is quite as violent as his latest graphic novel. The 59-year-old artist first became famous for 1990’s Hard Boiled, his insanely bloody collaboration with legendary comics writer Frank Miller, and since then has garnered acclaim for epic works like the monsters-and-robots tale The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot and the kung-fu/Western mash-up The Shaolin Cowboy — as well as his now-legendary concept art for The Matrix. But even die-hard fans couldn’t have anticipated just how insane Darrow’s newest offering would be. The Shaolin Cowboy: Shemp Buffet is on shelves now, and I can safely say it has the best dialogue-free, 109-page zombie fight scene you’ll read all year. The novel, published by Dark Horse, follows the titular martial-arts master as he attacks a seemingly endless pack of zombies in the desert and

Frank Miller Talks Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the future of 300, Reincarnating Robocop, Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, and More at Comic-Con

Though he is not exactly a household name, Frank Miller is still one most singular and influential storytellers of the last 40 years. His miniseries The Dark Knight Returns redefined the character, allowing for more cerebral and experimental efforts like Grant Morrison’s phantasmagoric Batman: Arkham Asylum. Coupled with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns helped pave the way for a whole generation of adult-oriented and serious-minded graphic novels. These novels served as the template for the gritty, hard-edged superhero fare that has dominated cineplex’s for almost a decade. And it has seeped deeply into films featuring no spandex at all. Without Miller, Tim Burton might not be an A-list director. There would certainly be no Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy. No Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles either, for that matter. And if we are to include the technological advancements of Robert Rodriguez and Zack Snyder’s respective adaptations,

[Comic Execution] 10/17 – ‘It Came!’, ‘Shaolin Cowboy’, ‘Coffin Hill’

We’re nearing Halloween and here I am, two weeks behind. It occurs to me that it would be appropriate if I were to be executed myself. But then, you wouldn’t have my column to read, now would you? What’s that? Well, yeah, I know you haven’t been able to read my column for a while but… look, just put the machete down, we can talk this out. I promise it won’t happen again? *gulp*

It Came! #3

Writer: Dan Boultwood

Artist: Dan Boultwood

Publisher: Titan

Price: $4

It’s been a pretty solid couple of issues for this very British sci-fi satire and I’ve been surprised to find myself looking forward to each issue more than the last. Granted, it’s only been three issues but it’s still a surprise, given how left-field the comic is. So let’s look at the third issue

Check Out Some Early, Freaky Concept Art for 'The Matrix'

Comic artist Geof Darrow, whose work has appeared in Hard Boiled and The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, has been a visual consultant and conceptual designer on several big- and small-screen productions — Barb Wire, Speed Racer and Richie Rich to name a few. His most memorable collaboration has been with the Wachowskis, who admired his work on Hard Boiled. They recruited him for the Matrix series, and the artist laid the visual foundation for their existential, dystopian classic. "The very first thing I worked on were the power plants with all the people plugged into them like batteries," Darrow revealed in a 1999 interview. Larry Wachowski contacted him after seeing some designs and told Darrow the artwork was even scarier than he had envisioned. "That initial...
