It is with great sadness that we relay the news that inimitable artist/writer – Darwyn Cooke passed away this morning after a secret battle with cancer, he was 54 years young. Peerless comic book creator Darwyn was one of the Precincts favourite artists with an almost matchless artistic technique that mixed a fresh distinctive look with a unparalleled 1940’s style finesse.

The Canadian artist’s retro style was applauded by comic book fans worldwide, and especially lauded by DC, who he had a close working relationship with. It was in the early 90’s that Darwyn was approached by DC’s parent company Warner Bros to be a storyboard artist on the iconic “Batman: The Animated Series” from here his entry into the wonderful world of comic books was assured through not just his remarkable artistic talent, but also his love of the medium itself and his humble approach to his fans.

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time.
