Cold war paranoia has outlawed the mystery men of the golden
age. Stalwarts such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman continued
to fight for truth and justice, but as the world hurtled towards
an uncertain future, it would take a new breed of hero to
define the American way...
The New Frontier is
a pretty entertaining offering. It charts the history of the
end of the golden age of heroes to the beginnings of the formation
of the Justice League of America (JLA) - Or, if you're not
familiar with comic history: as the '50s gave way to the '60s.
this collection does, it does well. A modern 21st century
perspective on events in the mid-20th century may seem a bit
of an odd subject for a graphic novel, but writer/illustrator
Darwyn Cooke pulls this off with style. His
artwork has a semi-retro feel to it, which sets this collection
up in a league of its own.
publishers have also done an impressive repro job giving this
collection a quality feel to it.
you are not a huge fan of the JLA, or American superheroes
at large, then this will not be to your taste. But if you
are, and you fancy a little twist, this is the collection
you've been waiting for. Satisfying.
