About the Author

Darwyn Cooke was 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. DC Comics then approached Cooke to write and illustrate Batman: Ego, which Cooke had pitched unsuccessfully several years earlier. The critical success of the title led to the relaunch of the Catwoman series with writer Ed Brubaker. Cooke then spent several years writing and drawing the ambitious epic The New Frontier. He was also the writer/artist of Before Watchmen: Minutemen and co-writer of Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre.


"Composed from equal parts affection and ambition, Darwyn Cooke's 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. Using a classic style, Cooke creates a classic of his own." -- A.V. Club/The Onion

"Mr. Cooke's drawings are striking, and his plot makes good use of DC's diverse characters." -- The New York Times

"You need to drop what you're doing and go read New Frontier. Now." -- IGN

"Cooke has stirringly laid out a promising new path for the superhero genre." --Publishers Weekly
