FIRST LOOK: Frank Cho’s Variant Cover for SHAOLIN COWBOY #2

A hefty helping of bikinis, violence and nuns, who are the ones in the bikinis.

Geof Darrow’s The Shaolin Cowboy is making a roaring return this spring via Dark Horse and we’ve got your FIRST LOOK at Frank Cho’s variant for Who’ll Stop the Reign #2.

Here ’tis:

Idelibly Cho, wouldn’t you say?

Here’s the solicitation info:

Geof Darrow (W/A/Cover), Frank Cho (Variant cover), and Dave Stewart (C)

FC, 32 pages, $3.99, 4-Issue Miniseries

The Shaolin Cowboy hits town, and it hits back. With King Crab in hot pursuit, he runs straight into the not-so-kosher menace of HOG KONG and his twisted tale of ham-fisted revenge. High-cholesterol-fueled action served up hot with plenty of chasers!

Oh, and here’s the regular cover by Darrow:

My lord, that line work.

By the way, in case you hadn’t heard, Darrow’s got an art retrospective due out this summer, also from Dark Horse. It’s called, fittingly, Lead Poisoning: The Pencil Art of Geof Darrow. Sayeth the publisher, “Geof Darrow’s slick, precise inks and stunning detail have amazed comics fans for decades, from his early work with Moebius to Hard Boiled, his first collaboration with Frank Miller, to the overwhelming success of his current series, The Shaolin Cowboy. Now Darrow provides incredible insight into his process by sharing the pencil drawings behind his meticulous inks in a huge hardcover collection, Lead Poisoning: The Pencil Art of Geof Darrow. Dark Horse Comics will release the oversized 128-page book, 9 x 12, HC and priced at $34.99, in July ahead of Darrow’s appearance at San Diego Comic Con.” For more info, click here.

The Shaolin Cowboy: Who’ll Stop the Reign #1 is due out 4/19. Issue #2 is due 5/24.
