This is the worst. Darwyn Cooke is gone.
The artist and writer, whose work was somehow nostalgic and innovative at the same time, has passed away after a battle with cancer.
Cooke wrote and drew comics and covers for characters like Catwoman and the Spirit, but my favorite of his work was “New Frontier,” his “retelling” of the origin of the Justice League in the 1940s and 1950s.
He was a huge talent and is greatly missed.

I’m missing the yellow arrow. But I guess we’ll see.
Just released by the CW, a look at the helmet that Diggle, part of Team Arrow from “Arrow,” will wear this season.
The helmet makes me think of Magneto. And it looks like it would get knocked off easily.
There’s a danger in trying to turn a character created for a TV series into a comic hero.
Of course it worked for Harley Quinn, created for the Batman animated series.
I’ll always have a fond spot in my heart for Vincent Price as Egghead in the “Batman” series.
Maybe it’s because of all the egg puns in “An Egg Grows in Gotham,” the 1966 episode that introduced the character.
Nah. It’s because: Vincent Price!
There’s a subset out there of Batman villains and bad jokes and there’s a tiny subset of Batman villains and bad vegetable jokes.
And then there’s this DC house ad from mid-century.
