Comics Great Darwyn Cooke Passes At 53



The comics industry has lost one of its best talents as Darwyn Cooke has died at 53.

Known mostly for his work at DC Comics, Cooke’s distinctive art style had made him a fan favorite. He’s probably best known for his work on The New Frontier, which DC adapted into an animated film a few years ago. He’s also worked on The Spirit, Catwoman, the Before Watchmen Minutmen mini-series, and has done countless covers for DC comics.

His death comes suddenly after an announcement just yesterday that he was battling a very aggressive form of cancer.
