Comics I Love - New Frontier

Darwyn Cooke's great New Frontier is like "comic book love" condensed into comic form.

It is Cooke's testamount to the 50s comics and how they led into the Silver Age.

There is so much appreciation and reverence in his handling of the characters, it really comes across so well.

And the art?!


Cooke's work is just so beautiful. Especially his covers, where he goes nuts using different art styles, influenced by popular painters of the time. Really gorgeous.

It is hard to pick a single best issue, but I guess I will have to cop to enjoying the climactic last issue.

Especially the "slow walk" scene.

I am such a fan of the slow walk...hehe.
