We’re joined by special guest Geof Darrow known for iconic work like Hard Boiled, Shaolin Cowboy, and his impressive designs used in The Matrix. Darrow joins us to discuss his latest series at Dark Horse, Shaolin Cowboy: Cruel to be Kin. We also dig into some of Darrow’s movie work like The Matrix, and listen to the end for a story involving Frank Miller and Mœbius!
