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 someone recommended it to me. Even better, he gave me 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, privileged - to readily 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 right 'round to your local comicbook store and plonk your paltry pounds into the palm of the purveyor of this most worthy and valiant volume.
Honest - you won't regret it!
