"A project composed from equal parts affection and ambition, Darwyn Cooke's episodic miniseries DC: The New Frontier looks back to the Silver Age of DC comic-book heroes, finding in them all the elements needed for a commentary on post-war America. Employing an art style that pays homage to the era's giants while remaining unmistakably his own, Cooke uses Superman, The Flash, Batman, and just as often, more obscure heroes like The Losers and Challengers Of The Unknown to examine space-age optimism, Cold War paranoia, and the places where the two meet."—THE ONION/A.V.
