A message from IDW’s CEO & Publisher Ted Adams, concerning the passing of Darwyn Cooke.
“I’m heartbroken to hear that Darwyn lost his fight with cancer but I know he went down swinging. Darwyn fought every day for his own art and for the art of others.
We’ve lost a once-in-a-generation talent. The comics world will be a less interesting one without Darwyn in it.
I’m extremely proud to have been his publisher and I know his Parker adaptations will live on for generations, outliving us all.
I’d like to extend my deepest condolences to Darwyn’s family, friends and fans. I mourn with you but Darwyn left us all an extraordinary body of work. His legacy will live on.”
