Zatannurday: Tribute to Darwyn Cooke

Last week we lost a great.  Darwyn Cooke died after a brief but aggressive battle with cancer.

I loved Darwyn's style and his heroes always looked like they were happy to be heroes.  They were the best versions of the characters.  Maybe not always the version we wanted to see, but better than the "grim-dark" heroes so many artists (and filmmakers) seem to want to do.


I loved how he always showed Wonder Woman smiling.


And of course when she didn't need to be.


He knew how to make Selena sexy cool.






And of course he knew how to draw Zatanna.

But I enjoyed Minutemen Before Watchmen Comics the most.



Silhouette became something else under his care.


But this video was also something he did well. For Batman's 75th Anniversary.



We are going to miss you Darwyn. You and your influence on the DCU.

Very nice tribute. I hope we'll see his influence in comics for a long time.
