Comics Review : DC The New Frontier : DC Comics : (2004 original story) (2016)

Hello Super Friends and DC Comics Fans , Here is my review of DC The New Frontier. 1st a description of this story and trade paperback :  Darwyn Cooke’s acclaimed epic is back in a new title collecting the 6-issue miniseries plus JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER SPECIAL #1! When Cold War paranoia outlawed the heroes of the Golden Age, stalwarts such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman continued to fight for truth and justice. But as the world hurtled toward an uncertain future, a new breed of hero would define the American Way! Now on to my review of this story , DC’s The New Frontier is written and drawn by  Darwyn Cooke with additional artwork by Dave Stewart. DC’s The New Frontier is an all ages comic book story that is about a registration act that the U.S. Government puts on Superman also it’s about the formation of The Justice League taking place in The Golden Age of DC Comics and Comics in general in the late 1930’s to the mid 1950’s during the Cold War. The story and artwork by Darwyn Cooke is what makes this story so good and the story is paced very well and everyone is in it The Trinity of Batman , Superman and Wonder Woman plus other members of The Justice League like Green Arrow , The Flash , Green Lantern , Martin Manhunter , Black Canary , Shazam and other characters like Lois Lane , Jimmy Olsen , Alfred Pennyworth and bad guys like Lex Luthor etc. The art style in this book is similar to Batman The Animated Series and Superman The Animated Series and that is by design. Extras in this Book and Trade Paperback includes a lot of behind the scenes information , concept artwork and different variant covers also it includes a chapter of Justice League The New Frontier which their is also an animated film out now on DVD / Blu-Ray Disc. Sadly earlier last year we lost Darwyn Cooke but his legacy will live on in The New Frontier and this story is one of the best DC Comics and All Ages Comic Books story of all-time. Overall I give DC The New Frontier a 9.5/10 a great comic book story and one of the best all ages comic books ever. Go pick this up you will enjoy it.
