We’re huge of Geof Darrow and his Shaolin Cowboy tales. (Check out our Shaolin Cowboy archive for our coverage of the books!) His most recent yarn about the character, The Shaolin Cowboy: Cruel to Be Kin, debuted a couple years back, with the same epic action and mind-blowing detail we’ve come to expect from Darrow. (Read our interview with Mr. Darrow about the book here!) And just this week, Dark Horse Books announced that it is released new version of the book this fall with the king-sized The Shaolin Cowboy: Cruel to Be Kin — Silent But Deadly Edition!



Check out the full press release below for all the details:

Geof Darrow’s highly praised Shaolin Cowboy: Cruel to Be Kin series will be presented in a new oversized edition perfect for admirers of Darrow’s incredibly detailed artwork. The Shaolin Cowboy: Cruel to Be Kin—Silent but Deadly Edition is set to arrive in Fall 2024The Silent but Deadly Edition presents Darrow’s art and Dave Stewart’s coloring without lettering.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then more than 205 pages of the stupendous and technicolor art of Dave Stewart and the dubious letterless box drawings of Geof Darrow must be worth at least…well…you do the math. But that’s what you are going to get when Dark Horse presents the king-size SILENT BUT DEADLY edition of the The Shaolin Cowboy epic “CRUEL TO BE KIN.” No words to slow you down, no philosophy to burden your tic-tocked brain—just pure unadulterated and uncensored, pedal to the metal, full color, kung fu, six gun, barn-burning action as only Stewart and Darrow can deliver. No valium nor Xanax can help you with this pulse-pounding tome. If you think you know the whole story you don’t! So light a match and crack open the window of your imagination and take a deep breath of the CRUEL TO BE KIN SILENT BUT DEADLY edition!!! Geof Said Non-Believer!
