Geof Darrow’s slick, precise inks and stunning detail have amazed comics fans for decades, from his early work with Moebius; to Hardboiled, his first collaboration with Frank Miller; to the overwhelming excess of his current series, Shaolin Cowboy.
Now Darrow provides incredible insight into his process by sharing the pencil drawings behind his meticulous inks in a huge hardcover collection. Featuring the pencils behind well-known covers and never-before-seen drawings alike, Lead Poisoning is a behind-the-scenes look that reveals perfectionism at its best, showing how clean and perfect the initial drawings can be, as well as the bizarre alterations that appear to happen on the fly.

5.0 out of 5 starsGeoff is an amazing artist. This is a great book if you …
Incredible stuff. Getting even a glimpse of how Geof pencils these is great.(perspective lines, little notes, erasures)While a bit more info would have been good about each piece, it’s possible it wasn’t available since these may have been worked on for years and without organization.
I think the size is just about perfect. With Geof’s work the canvas never seems big enough,(even for him, he’ll attach another piece of paper when the drawing grows to the edge) but I probably need better reading glasses anyway to see it up close.
I’ve actually got finished prints hanging of some of the drawings in this from a ComicCon I met him at, so it’s great to see the “before”.
Love the pages that this was printed on and of course the artwork is very well constructed.
Comment: LIKE NEW!!! Has a small black line on edge of pages. Tracking is not available for orders shipped outside of the United States.

I love Geof Darrow, and there is a lot of gorgeous art in this book, but the lack of captions/context is really frustrating.Many, but not all, of the works have brief reviews/comments/poems from some cool creative people.
However, none of the works have captions with any information about the art. I understand that a lot of the works are preliminary and may not have formal titles or descriptions, but it would be great to have the year, at least.
There is nothing to give the reader any context. It would be great if there was a caption stating what the art was for or from so that readers could look into the projects they’re seeing the pencils of.
The size of the book is also a disappointment. It would have really benefitted from an oversized format similar to IDW’s Artist’s Editions or Dark Horse’s own Big Damn Hard Boiled and King Size Big Guy and Rusty.
It would have been really special to see more of the art at the size that the artist drew it.This book is still a must-own for fans of Darrow, and there is a lot of visual insight into his process and prowess.
