    Oh, man, my heart literally stopped when I saw this. I love Darwyn. Without a doubt, one of the best, most distinctive artists in the business. I absolutely adore his writing too. My thoughts go out to him and his family and I sincerely hope he pulls through this. If you're reading this, Darwyn, please know that you an absolute inspiration and that your work has had a transformative effect on us readers. Personally, New Frontier is one of my favorite stories ever told. Please feel better. My heart goes out to you.

    This is a shame. I've met Darwyn Cooke a couple times. He's always been a very nice person and just an amazing talent.
    Hope is not lost today. It is found.

    Palliative care means he won't pull through, sadly. The battle is lost, all they can do now is try to make him comfortable.

    Cancer is an asshole.

    Hope he makes it through this, he's a tremendous talent.

    This. You can only hope he's as peaceful as possible now.

    Well this news just ruined my day. I grew up in Nova Scotia, not too far from where he's been living for the last decade and he's kind of been my local hero. I've always loved his work and am pretty saddened to hear this.

    I think a number of people don't realize this.

    Folks, do buy some of Cooke's stuff if you can. I'm sure his family could use whatever little bit they can get right now.

    This is horrible news. I wish the best for both him and his family right now. I am a big fan of his and his artwork. The only time I bother buying a variant cover edition is when he does the art.

    His Parker GNs were fantastic. I am so sad to hear this. I loved his work.

    I doubt that the majority knows the terms palliative and curative in regards to cancer, heck, I just learnt that there was that kind of distinction two years ago. Only because I got a look into a department for radiotherapy and radiooncology.
