Cooke's "New Frontier" a good read

So, no new comics to close out 2006. If you get Bargain Comics' e-mail newsletter, then you know that no Colorado shops got their weekly shipment of comics. So expect two loads of comics next week.

I've had the week off, and used part of that time to read the Absolute Edition of Darwyn Cooke's "DC: The New Frontier." I'm not a big fan of Cooke's retro, somewhat cartoony art; I'm more drawn to the photorealism of, say, Alex Ross or Greg Land. But the art did grow on me. And the story, which reimagines the birth of the Justice League in the '50s and early '60s, quickly sucked me in.
