The Thing and Big Guy & Rusty, The Boy Robot



I think that Geoff Darrow is one of the most amazing artists ever to work in comics. It's a shame that he doesn't do more work, but maybe not all that surprising since the art he provides is so incredibly meticulous and detailed. I could stare at his pages from Big Guy or Hard Boiled for hours. There was a short lived cartoon series featuring Big Guy and Rusty several years back. I was very cool to see Darrow's creations in motion, even in simplified form. I know that Darrow does a lot of film concept work, but I hope he returns with a new comic book project one of these days - I know I would definitely be first in line for it!

Brilliant cover!

Now this is what a team-up book should do - spark an interest in reading a book that I had never read or picked up before...

Now I have to go Google or Wikipedia or ComicVine to find out more...

Big Guy and Rusty had an awesome cartoon series...wonder if it's going to be available officially on DVD?
This is a nice cover.

Such a great one. It still kills me to this day I passed up a chance to get a Darrow sketch of Rusty at one of the SDCCons. Such is life. I am still going through this whole blog and digging it so much!
