Darwyn Cooke, one of our favorite comic book creators, passed away last week at the age of 53. To honor him, we decided to cover his magnum opus, DC: The New Frontier, which takes a look at the Dawn of DC’s new superheroes and the birth of the Justice League in the 1950’s.
It’s an oversized 6-issue miniseries completely written and drawn by Cooke himself and it’s an absolute must-read for fans of the genre, young and old.
How was there not a Power Pack cartoon in the ‘80s? How is there not one NOW?!?
We took a look at issues 1-4 of this 1984 Marvel superteam created by debut writer Louise Simonson and artist June Brigman.
We really let it transport us to a land of sugary cereals on Saturday morning and fake unicorn grandparents that you love more than your actual family (yes, really).
We also try to figure out why someone named Alex Power would choose the much lamer “Gee” as a codename. Get it together, Alex. You’re an embarrassment to the Power Pack.
