Frank Miller and Geof Darrow are back with Big Guy and Rusty for DHP


A news byte from C2E2: Dark Horse Presents, the long running anthology, will be back in a slimmer format but with some added content heft, including a new “Big Guy & Rusty” story by Frank Miller and Geof Darrow. Previous issues of the long running anthology had been 80 pages but a new 48 page format will be a bit easier to put out, said Dark Horse publisher MIke Richardson.

Rusty and the Big Guy is a comics series from 1995 about a young boy with a giant robot, that classic set up. It was turned into a Saturday morning cartoon for Fox, and ran for a whole season. That’s right, THERE WAS A FRANK MILLER SATURDAY MORNING CARTOON SHOW IN THE 90S. ANd yuo wonder why the 90s were the apogee of the Golden Age of human civilization.

The new story is just a “simple thing” Darrow told Comic Book Resources, which Miller is dialoging.

• David Mack’s “Kabuki”
• New “Resident Alien” stories by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse

    Cool. The 90s cartoon did a good job adapting Geof Darrow’s art style to animation.

  2. Chris Hero says:

    Well this is welcome news!
    I haven’t read new Miller in more than a decade, does he still have “it”?

  4. jacob lyon goddard says:

    Kabuki moving to DH seems like a big deal too.

  5. I hope Frank Miller is able to turn off his inner “grim and gritty”-ness to do this.

  6. Brian says:

    I’ll be buying it too, but to jacob – no, Frank Miller does not still have “it”. Geof Darrow, on the other hand, still amazes.
