ac6a297fd92f4b885747e7a6d0d1c6b3We are back for part two of our journey into the New Frontier!  In 2004, Darwyn Cooke, writer and artist, produced the DC Comic’s The New Frontier Absolute Edition, and the result was an instant classic.  Darwyn Cooke has a unique art style inspired by masters like Bruce Tim, Jack Kirby, Max Fleischer and Alex Toth.  The result is a retro-style masterpiece.  Take a listen to part two of our New Frontier Absolute Edition Review Podcast and walk-through the final chapters as the stakes grow higher and higher.   We learn just what the Circle is, watch Flash and Green Lantern turn into the heroes they are meant to be, and watch the birth of the Justice League and the New Frontier!
