New Frontier in one softcover volume next February!

February 10th of 2015 will see the release of DC: The New Frontier! Written and illustrated by Darwyn, the all-in-one volume will be 480 pages, standard trade paperback dimensions collects the entire epic DC: THE NEW FRONTIER in a single trade paperback, along with sketch and background material from the absolute edition.

You probably know the story already, but just in case: In the 1950s, Cold War paranoia has resulted in the mystery men of the Golden Age being outlaws. Stalwarts such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman continued to fight for truth and justice, but as the world hurtles toward an uncertain future, it would take a new breed of hero to define the American Way. DC: THE NEW FRONTIER takes readers on an epic journey from the end of the Golden Age of heroes to the beginnings of the legendary Justice League of America.

Stan Sakai fund-raiser auction is on now!

Darwyn has donated a Green Lantern piece for the STAN & SHARON SAKAI BENEFIT AUCTION currently running on ebay here.

Done in Pen/Ink on bristol paper and about 10 1/2 X 14 inches in size, Green Lantern is shown flying through space, probably on his way to save the galaxy when he's supposed to be meeting Carol Ferris for dinner!

The auction is organized by CAPS (Comic Art Professional Society) to help aid USAGI YOJIMBO creator Stan Sakai and his wonderful wife Sharon with increasing medical bills due to Sharon's present debilitating illness. There are donations by many of the industry's top artists, companies, and fans alike. With over 400 pieces to be auctioned, they will be listing 30-40 pieces of original art, signed prints and books, and limited edition statues every week.

100% of the proceeds of the auctions go directly to Stan & Sharon Sakai.

As a major part of the auctions, they will be selling many pieces of Usagi Yojimbo tribute art by fans and professionals alike. Much of this art will be published in July by Dark Horse in the book THE SAKAI PROJECT: ARTISTS CELEBRATE THIRTY YEARS OF USAGI YOJIMBO. Because of their love for Stan & Sharon, the list of professionals who contributed to this project is unbelievably impressive! Don't miss a chance to own great Usagi artwork by your favourite artists! Order a copy today from your local comic book shop. The order code for THE SAKAI PROJECT is "MAR140071".
