Video of the Spotlight on Darwyn Cooke Panel from WonderCon 2015


Featuring a reunion of the original iFanboy founders and co-hosts: Ron Richards, Josh Flanagan, and Conor Kilpatrick; it looks like they had a blast talking with Darwyn at WonderCon last week in a conversation that spanned everything from his earliest days trying to break into comics through to his first creator owned work Revengeance, which is coming later this year from Image Comics.

Check out the video here.

Deluxe New Frontier HC available now!

Well, tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 11th, to be precise...

If you're here, you are probably familiar with Darwyn's epic New Frontier series, If not, scroll further down for the sales pitch part.

All the bells and whistles of the Absolute Edition of The New Frontier are collected into a more affordable, but still deluxe, hardcover and this version also includes the fantastic New Frontier Special one-shot featuring art and stories by Darwyn, Michael Cho, J. Bone and more!
















...and here's that sales pitch part for anyone not already familiar with the New Frontier:

Writer/illustrator Darwyn Cooke's critically acclaimed masterpiece DC: THE NEW FRONTIER is celebrated in this new edition featuring 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 has resulted in the mystery men of the Golden Age being outlaws. Stalwarts such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman continued to fight for truth and justice, but as the world hurtles 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.

For the first time, DC collects the entire epic DC: THE NEW FRONTIER in a single collection, along with sketch and background material from the absolute edition.

Collects DC: THE NEW FRONTIER #1-6, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER SPECIAL #1 and material from ABSOLUTE DC: THE NEW FRONTIER.

Revengeance! Coming in June via Image Comics!


REVENGEANCE is a psychological thriller with darkly humorous overtones. When Joe Malarky is faced with a criminal tragedy, he sets out to make things right on his own. What follows is Joe's odyssey through the underside of the city and the madness that seems to drive his crazy world. REVENGEANCE takes place in Toronto in the mid-eighties and is part crime story, part psychotronic melodrama, and a wholly fond look back at the author's hometown.

Jeremy Dale

We're all reeling from the absolutely horrible news that Jeremy Dale has passed away, all too suddenly and far too soon. 

Jeremy was one of the young guys I've met on the con circuit that always impressed. Jeremy the person was just like his work; Upbeat, sweet and tireless. He did his work his way, and in an all too rare occurrence that meant wholesome and hopeful stories that anyone could read and enjoy. 

Jeremy did this out of sheer love and will and did it without a major publisher. That means no steady paycheck, no pension, no backstop. But he had something better than all of that. He had his dreams, and he had a partner that shared them. 

Right now, the center of our grief and thoughts are with Kelly, Jeremy's wife and partner. They were most truly a team, and now Kelly needs all of us. If you can spare a few dollars, please go to gofundme.com/jeremydale to contribute. 

May your God bless you, Jeremy. 

Love 
Darwyn and Marsha

You may have seen some of these images with blackout spots on the characters as Dynamite was teasing them out via social media over the last couple of weeks. The King / Dynamite comics will begin in January.

Here they are in their full glory:
