It's being reported that comic book writer/illustrator Darwyn Cooke has passed away today from cancer at the age of 54. He was one of the greats, crafting images and stories with a retro flair and ultimately optimistic tone that stood head and shoulders above everything else out there. To me, his work carried a sense of wonder akin to the way comic books made me feel when i was a little kid, and every book he was involved with was a must-buy. He certainly made his mark too, from his now iconic redesign of Catwoman to his current retro-noir Parker graphic novel adaptations to "New Frontier," easily one of the best comic series to come out in the last 25 years. He will be missed. RIP Darwyn Cooke.
Looks like i've got some stuff to go back and read again this weekend.
