DARWYN COOKE (1962-2016)

This has been a long 24 hours for family, friends and fans of cartoonist Darwyn Cooke.

On Friday morning, Darwyn’s wife, Marsha, posted news on his blog that surprised thousands of the artist’s fans and admirers:

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce Darwyn is now receiving palliative care following a bout with aggressive cancer. His brother Dennis and I, along with our families appreciate the outpouring of support we have received. We ask for privacy as we go through this very difficult time.

Cartoonist and frequent collaborator of Darwyn’s, Michael Allred, confirmed the unfortunate news of Cooke’s passing.

I’ve been a fan of his since DC published his Batman: Ego, back in 2000, and have followed his work ever since.  I really don’t have much to say right now other than please check his work out and enjoy a look at some of my favorite pieces of his amazing art.

Rest in Peace.
