I wasn't too sure about Darwyn Cooke's DC: The New Frontier when it was first announced - I remember rumblings that it was either a thematic or literal sequel to James Robinson's The Golden Age, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

As I told Cooke years later at a panel at SDCC, he didn't play fair with my emotions. Growing up, I frequented the second-hand bins at one of my local bookstores a lot, and in them were bunches of Our Army at War and G.I. Combat, and one group that I loved was the hard-luck war hero group, The Losers - the originals, not the (albeit still pretty good) reimagining that resulted in a slightly disappointing movie adaptation.

So when I read these pages, and later on, when Cooke used the frickin' Challengers of the Unknown, for chrissakes... I was hooked. Line, and sinker.

They called them the Losers. But they were winners to the end. )
