His wife revealed it today via blog.

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce Darwyn is now receiving palliative care following a bout with aggressive cancer. His brother Dennis and I, along with our families appreciate the outpouring of support we have received. We ask for privacy as we go through this very difficult time. Urgent inquiries please contact David Hyde david.hyde@superfanpromotions.com

DC fans will know him best as the artist and writer for DC: The New Frontier. He also animated the opening sequence for Batman Beyond, amongst other things.

I hope he pulls through. I'm a big fan of his incarnation of The Spirit, New Frontier, and his Batman stories.

Cooke has passed away:

Shattered by the passing of a true original, Darwyn Cooke. The world knows his art, but not everyone knew his kindness.
