Absolute DC: The New Frontier 

Darwyn Cooke

Absolute DC: The New Frontier
Darwyn Cooke
Toronto-born, Nova Scotia-residing Darwyn Cooke’s limited series is given the deluxe treatment in a huge DC Absolute edition. It’s a look back at an era of DC heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Green Lantern—with only the slightest of nods to the gods of continuity, and tells the story of a moment in time (the 1950s) that bridged the DC Golden and Silver Ages. Cooke’s chunky illustrations recall pioneers such as Jack Kirby and Chester Gould, working well in a “historical” milieu. Dancing with politics, civil rights and the optimism of the space age, comics about men and women in capes rarely fly as high as this.
