ABSOLUTE DC: THE NEW FRONTIER HC Written by Darwyn Cooke Art and cover by Cooke Writer/illustrator Darwyn Cooke's critically acclaimed masterpiece DC: THE NEW FRONTIER is celebrated in this oversized Absolute edition featuring new story pages, detailed annotations, alternate sequences and an extensive gallery of sketches, pinups, action figure art and much more! In the 1950s, Cold War paranoia outlawed the Mystery Men of the Golden Age. Stalwarts such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman continued to fight for truth and justice, but as the world hurtled toward an uncertain future, it would take a new breed of hero to define the American Way. DC: THE NEW FRONTIER takes readers on an epic journey from the end of the Golden Age of heroes to the beginnings of the legendary Justice League of America. Darwyn Cooke's most ambitious project yet features the stunning color art of Dave Stewart, an introduction by DC's President & Publisher Paul Levitz, and an afterword by Cooke. Advance-solicited; on sale October 4 * 464 pg, FC, $75.00 US

About the Author:

Darwyn Cooke is best known for his revision of Catwoman in such graphic novels as The Dark End of the Street and Selina's Big Score, and his work on Batman: Ego. He has also had an illustrious career in animation including three years on The Batman/Superman Adventures and designing the main title for Batman Beyond.

From Booklist:

Cooke's affectionate reinterpretation of DC's early-1960s superheroes gets the Absolute treatment, slipcase and all. The large scale shows off Cooke's dynamic, neotraditionalist artwork to spectacular advantage, particularly the "widescreen" horizontal panels that echo the era's prevailing cinematic format, and it emphasizes the ambitious tale's epic sweep. The deluxe edition includes news-story pages, annotations, rare promotional art, and other extras. New Frontier might not have the high profile of other Absolute Edition selections, such as Neil Gaiman's Sandman and Frank Miller's Dark Knight, but it, too, deserves the elaborate presentation.
