I always buy Darwyn Cooke’s work because he never fails to put a huge smile on my face.
I loved his ‘Parker’ book, ‘Catwoman: Selina’s Big Score’ was the best thing that ever happened for the character, ‘DC: the New Frontier’ is one of the highest-caliber books DC has done since ‘Batman: the Dark Knight Returns’. It is a bombshell, and a love note to DC comics of the 50s and 60s in the process.
By the way, Darwyn did the lead design for the opening ‘Batman: Beyond’ animated title sequence. Bruce Timm did the art for the original Batman: the Animated Series. Darwyn did ‘Batman: Beyond’, which followed ‘the New Adventures of Batman and Superman’ onto Fox Kids back in the late 90s-early2000s.
Watch that show again.
The best Batman movies DC has ever released were “Batman: the Mask of the Phantasm”, “Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker”, and “Dark Knight”. In that order.
