After passing away in May, iconic comic creator Darwyn Cooke has been honored by DC Comics with a double-page spread in this week's releases featuring his art and a quote from legendary artist Jack Kirby.
Cooke's relationship with DC began in 1985 with "Talent Showcase" #19. He followed that up with work as a storyboard artist on "Batman Beyond," "Superman" and "The New Batman Adventures." He gained wider industry attention fifteen years later with the one-shot "Batman: Ego." In 2001, he collaborated with writer Ed Brubaker on a stylish update of "Catwoman," and then wrote and illustrated the seminal "DC: The New Frontier" series in 2004. In 2007, Cooke helmed a DC Comics revival of "The Spirit," the legendary Will Eisner's most famous creation.
