RECOMMENDED READING: DARWYN COOKE'S 'DC: THE NEW FRONTIER'...
Sometimes I'm late to the party. Case in point - I didn't
know about The NEW FRONTIER until relatively recently,
when a friend recommended it to me. Even better, he gifted me
with a copy of this brand-spanking-new edition, which I've just
finished reading. As you'll know, not that long ago, DARWYN
COOKE succumbed to cancer at the far-too young age of 53,
which means that the comics-buying public is denied any new
epics from this supremely-talented creator. (And, sadder
yet, his family and friends no longer have the living
presence of someone they dearly loved.)
But his work endures, and I feel obliged - nay, privi-
leged - to recommend this superb superhero extravaganza
to all you eager Criv-ites out there who yearn for something
truly satisfying to read. Trust me, this is no mere hype - you'll
absolutely love this tale, especially if you recall with fondness
the SILVER AGE DC titles to which this awesome epic pays
affectionate homage, while at the same time being entirely
suited to the tastes of a contemporary audience.
Sadly, Darwyn is off exploring the real 'final' frontier,
but he blazed a trail through this one with his fine works
of comicbook (and animation) excellence. Do yourself a big
favour - rush 'round to your local FORBIDDEN PLANET
store (or similar shop if there isn't an FP in your neighbour-
hood) and plonk your paltry pounds into the palm of the
purveyor of this most worthy volume.
Honest - you won't regret it!
