Darwyn Cooke The New Frontier Absolute Edition Review Podcast (Part One) - Podcast #29
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. Listen to our podcast review and walk-through of The New Frontier Absolute Edition as we dive into a world filled with GI’s, dinosaurs and epic heroes - both with and without capes.
This story bridges the gap from the end of the Golden Age into the Silver Age of DC Comics. We focus on the themes presented to the reader: courage, the horror of war and racism and what it means to be a hero. Find out why this should be the definitive version of many characters, like Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter. This is the first of two podcasts packed with comics history, insights and an exploration of Darwyn's opus. Part two will be released in two weeks.
