Gun Fu: Showgirls Are Forever

Here's an ad for Gun Fu: Showgirls Are Forever, an upcoming one-shot comic I penciled, which will be out in March and published by Image Comics. Gun Fu is the brainchild of writer/artist/filmmaker/all around nice guy Howard Shum. Howard and Cerebus creator Dave Sim wrote this issue, with inks by Howard and colors by Etienne Simon.

For those interested in the book, you can find it listed in the January 2006 Diamond Previews, on sale Dec. 21st at comic shops. I recommend pre-ordering a copy from your local comic shop, because almost anytime I'm looking for an independent title I have an extremely hard time finding it, if at all.

I'll be posting some more pages in the upcoming weeks, in various stages of development. Until then, here's a link where you can see a few pages (without captions, or word balloons) .... right here.

And an interview with Howard about Gun Fu ..... right here.

Thanks for stopping by and all the wonderful and fun comments.

WOW! You walked right up out of nowhere and smacked me upside the head with this one! I did a "take" like a kid who just had his breakfast stolen by some a--hole rabbit. This is awesome news and the artwork looks great! I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on it!

Cool! Hello Darryl. I've seen your work online and through Howard's Blog. Really like it! He didn't even mention that you were drawing the next Gun Fu, that's excellent! I'll have to get this one for sure. (Read: get Howard to send me one for free.) It's worth it's wait in gold!

Sounds great. Looks great. And I'm sure it tastes way better than *insert crappy comic title here*

Nice stuff Darryl!
