Darwyn Cooke Passes Away

Postby DarkFlux » May 14th, 2016, 10:07 am



Reports came in yesterday that renowned comic creator Darwyn Cooke was recieving palliative care for an aggressive form of cancer.
It would seem from tweets of friends and professionals that knew him that he unfortunatly passed away in the early hours of this morning.

Extremely sad news, he was a modern master in the industry and one of my personal favourite creators.

RIP.

2016, man...

One of my favourite comic book artists and a great writer to boot. He was well loved by both fans and the industry. What a legend.

What, i read that he had cancer...damn that is sad.
He had such a unique style to things, and seemed like a nice guy from what i heard.

Really sad about that.

Thats really tragic... I thought he would fight the cancer for some time. Now we┬┤ve lost one of the best comic artists ever :(

Was so gutted to hear this last week. People should know that Darwyn's family requested that if people do make charitable donations to remember him, that they do so either to the Canadian Cancer Society (where he has is own special fund you can access here), or to the Hero Initiative.

He penned my favourite comic book of all time, and was probably my favourite artist too. It's really hard to believe he's actually gone.
