Darwyn Cooke says Batman is his all-time favourite comic book character.
It shows.
The noted Canadian writer/illustrator of the Eisner and Joe Shuster award-winning series DC: The New Frontier and monthly comic, The Spirit, has a special gift for spinning yarns about the Dark Knight and now all the ones he’s done so far are available in one handsome package.
Ego And Other Tails features, obviously, Ego, Cooke’s first Batman story which sees the hero faced up against a villain he never dreamed possible: Himself. Other highlights in this collection include the gritty and glorious Selina’s Big Score, a Catwoman tale full of crooks and double-crosses and some shorter stories from the Batman In Black And White series and DC’s tremendous artist profile series, Solo.
Fans of this former Torontonian, now near-Haligonian won’t want to miss this one.
