New Frontier

Whilst I will give Darwyn Cooke his own research post (him being my current favourite artist) I wanted to highligt this page as it's one of my absolute favourites. His economy of line and the life he can bring from it never fails to stun me. He has the absolute package for me: storytelling, style, compostion, character development- add to that the fact that he often writes, pencils and inks his own work!!! He is one of the greatest advocates of the the 3 pannel format, something I totally agree with because to me the trdaitional 6 pannel page can often look cluttered. I also thik it takes more skill to tell the same story in 3 pannels because the compostion has to be that mch stronger.
