R.I.P. Darwyn Cooke, 1962-2016

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Darwyn Cooke died last night at the age of 53. He had been battling cancer and was receiving palliative care, but lost the fight early this morning, according to his family. Cooke was a great artist who did amazing work on a lot of DC’s characters, and his graphic adaptations of Richard Stark’s “Parker” novels are excellent. As the link notes, if you want to make a donation, you can do so to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Hero Initiative.

It’s a sad day for the comics world, but go get your copy of New Frontier or Selina’s Big Score or any of the other superb Cooke comics out there and give them a read and remember what a staggering talent he was. And let’s hope that someday, we can figure out a way to cure cancer. That would be nice.
