"[NEW FRONTIER] chronicles the experiences of DC Comics heroes from the end of World War II through the cold war. Mr. Cooke's drawings are striking, and his plot makes good use of DC's diverse characters, from the alien Martian Manhunter to the military squadron known as the Losers."--THE NEW YORK TIMES "A project composed from equal parts affection and ambition, Darwyn Cooke's episodic miniseries DC: The New Frontier looks back to the Silver Age of DC comic-book heroes, finding in them all the elements needed for a commentary on post-war America. Employing an art style that pays homage to the era's giants while remaining unmistakably his own, Cooke uses Superman, The Flash, Batman, and just as often, more obscure heroes like The Losers and Challengers Of The Unknown to examine space-age optimism, Cold War paranoia, and the places where the two meet."--THE ONION/A.V. CLUBVom Verlag:
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, pin-ups, 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 continue 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.
