I was distressed to wake up this morning to the news that Darwyn Cooke has died from cancer. Yesterday, the comic book online world was aghast at the news that he was in palliative care for an aggressive form of cancer. That news had barely sunk in before today's news came.
I genuinely have no words to go with this. I'm just heartbroken. He was, from all reports, one of the good guys of the field. And I loved his retro style. The New Frontier is a great work... I only wished there was more Aquaman in it.
