Writer and artist Geof Darrow is one of the true visionaries of the comic book industry. It’s a rare occasion when he gets to fully cut loose, but fans can currently see Darrow at the height of his talents in the new miniseries, The Shaolin Cowboy: Who’ll Stop the Reign?, courtesy of Dark Horse Comics.

As the title of the comic suggests, the unnamed protagonist of Darrow’s signature creation is both a cowboy and a former Shaolin monk. And the world he inhabits is absolutely insane. There’s also a significant price on the cowboy’s head, and everybody is looking to collect.

In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for The Shaolin Cowboy: Who’ll Stop the Reign? # 2, the action kicks up to a ridiculous degree as the cowboy evades bullets and a giant talking crab. We’re predicting a big explosion on page six.

Here’s the official description from Dark Horse Comics:

“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!”

The Shaolin Cowboy: Who’ll Stop the Reign? # 2 will be released this Wednesday, May 24, in comic stores everywhere.
