Darwyn Cooke's DC: The New Frontier
Gets the Absolute Treatment

Okay, we can't contain ourselves... hooray!

Kicking off our weekend with some truly delightful funnybook news, DC has announced a fistful of new graphic novel collections that have us geeking out in the most undiluted way imaginable. You'd better believe we'll be ordering ourselves copies of the new Phantom Stranger, Unknown Soldier, and Adam Strange collections... but the most exciting news of all is that Darwyn Cooke's sexy superheroic epic mini-series DC: The New Frontier is getting compiled into one glorious Absolute Edition hardcover this October.

Expect to see this over-sized slipcased hardcover packed with 464 pages of jaw-dropping art, a pin-up gallery, some never-before-seen deleted scenes, and one heck of a great story.

Oh sure, we know that these over-sized Absolute Editions DC has been putting out are expensive, hedonistic, and more than a little bit nerdly excessive... but who are we to turn our noses up at a little self-indulgence? We just want this beauty on our bookshelves!
