I first became aware of Darwyn Cooke when I read that he was behind the awesome opening title sequence for the Batman Beyond cartoon. So when I saw that he was going to be writing and illustrating some DC comics, I was very interested to see how they would look. I was blown away with the cinematic feel of his stories - reading comics like Batman: Ego was like looking at the coolest storyboards ever. Then of course, there's DC: The New Frontier, where he really got a chance to flex his superhero muscles. He's great as moody noirish tales as well, as can be seen with his work on Parker for IDW.
