Absolute New Frontier HC (New Printing)

Absolute New FrontierWritten by Darwyn Cooke
Art and cover by Darwyn Cooke

Writer/illustrator Darwyn Cooke’s award-winning, critically acclaimed masterpiece DC: The New Frontier is back in a new printing of the Absolute edition, featuring new story pages, detailed annotations, alternate sequences and an extensive gallery of sketches, pinups, action figure art and 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 and Publisher Paul Levitz, and an afterword by Cooke.
