    You can buy it now or you can buy it in trade paperback in 2005, but why not be one of the first at your comics shop to say hes read the next Dark Knight? This is the next comics classic. Read Full Review

    The series has a retro-style look with modern touches. The art isnt as stiff as most DC comics from the 1950s. Theres an element of life to these characters. Perhaps its the extra detail put into the faces and motions. Cookes art is simple at first, but closer examination reveals as much realism as serious art. I dont think anyone can draw just like Cooke. And its great to see him use his skills to the utmost in his own series. Buy it! Read Full Review

    Im obviously a sad superhero-addict as I preferred the previous issues action with the Flash and Wonder Womans attack on Superman, but this is a very well-written and astonishingly well-drawn comic nonetheless. On the whole, Im not a DC fan, but Cooke has me hooked (!) with this series. Read Full Review

    The third issue of DC:The New Frontier is the most padded and dull issue. While there are costumed moments that elevate the story, Cooke here mostly deals with Rick Flagg, a sociopath who deserves to be sidelined, rather than the center of attention. While all of the book is a stunning example of Cooke's artistic sensibilities, given the expense of the story, this issue can be left on the shelf with little impact on further reading.
