On our latest Throwback Stack podcast, we’re revisiting Darwyn Cooke’s classic, award-winning DC: The New Frontier. The six-issue series won multiple awards and put forward a new, hopeful look at DC’s classic characters, so let’s break it all down. How does the series hold up, years later? What is the legacy of Cooke’s masterwork — and the late, great Cooke himself?
DC: The New Frontier Official Synopsis:
Darwyn Cooke’s acclaimed epic is back in a new title collecting the 6-issue miniseries plus JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER SPECIAL #1! When Cold War paranoia outlawed the heroes 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, a new breed of hero would define the American Way!
