About the Author

Darwyn Cooke is an Eisner Award-winning cartoonist and animator. After spending several years as a magazine art director and graphic designer, Cooke switched careers and began working in animation, where he contributed to such shows as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series and Men In Black: The Series. From there, DC Comics approached Cooke to write and illustrate a project that the artist had submitted to the company years earlier: BATMAN: EGO. The critical success of the title led to more freelance work, including the relaunch of the CATWOMAN series with writer Ed Brubaker (which inspired Cooke to write and draw the graphic novel CATWOMAN: SELINA''S BIG SCORE).

Cooke then spent several years writing and drawing the ambitious epic THE NEW FRONTIER, a six-issue miniseries bridging the gap between the end of the Golden Age of comics and the beginnings of the Silver Age. He is the writer/artist of BEFORE WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN and co-writer of BEFORE WATCHMEN: SILK SPECTRE. Currently he is working on a series of best-selling graphic novel adaptations of Richard Stark''s hard-boiled Parker crime series.

Editorial Reviews

"[NEW FRONTIER] chronicles the experiences of DC Comics heroes from the end of World War II through the cold war. Mr. Cooke''s drawings are striking, and his plot makes good use of DC''s diverse characters, from the alien Martian Manhunter to the military squadron known as the Losers."—THE NEW YORK TIMES

"A project composed from equal parts affection and ambition, Darwyn Cooke''s episodic miniseries DC: The New Frontier looks back to the Silver Age of DC comic-book heroes, finding in them all the elements needed for a commentary on post-war America. Employing an art style that pays homage to the era''s giants while remaining unmistakably his own, Cooke uses Superman, The Flash, Batman, and just as often, more obscure heroes like The Losers and Challengers Of The Unknown to examine space-age optimism, Cold War paranoia, and the places where the two meet."—THE ONION/A.V. CLUB
