If anyone hasn't heard, he's got cancer and it doesn't sound good. He's been my favorite since I first saw Ego over a decade ago. Wishing him the best.
My two favorite musicians have already died this year (Bowie & Prince).

I just read this and now I'm seeing that he's already passed away. R.I.P.

Very sad news, indeed.

I've seen some interviews with him here and there, and, apart from being an amazing artist, he seemed to be a really good guy.

Just a day before he passed away I was thinking of wanting to get the Catwoman books he did with Brubaker. Strange and surreal. I absolutely love what I have read of Cooke's work.

It's just the first volume. He drew the first 4-5 issues (all in that tpb) plus the Selina's Big Score one-shot.

Selina's Big Score was the start of probably the best era Catwoman ever had on the page. A landmark work. I too was recently considering going back to the start and doing a full read of that solo series.

If you don't have that one shot, it's reprinted in Batman: Ego and Other Tales. Contains Ego, Selina's Big Score, and all the Black and White stories he did plus the stuff from the issue of Solo.

I have (and love) that entire series including Big Score, and think I also have the expanded Ego reprint too. That sounds like a good place to start.

It will be both a happy and sad read.

I'm going through it now. Just finished the expanded Ego. Then Dark End of the Street, Superman: Kryptonite, New Frontier, etc.

I just finished the New Frontier hardcover (not the Absolute one, but the smaller version that includes all the absolute stuff + the one-shot). This is at least the third time (maybe forth?) I've read it, and it gets me every time. Brilliant work.
Before that, I read Ego and Other Tales, Dark End of the Street, Superman: Kryptonite, Graphic Ink, etc.
Next up: His two issues of Spider-Man: Tangled Web, Wolverine / Doop, The Spirit v1-2, Before Watchmen, and Twilight Children.

Since I figured this would be as good a time as any, I bought the first Catwoman TPB and Parker: The Martini Edition HC. After I finish the third Uncanny X-Men Omnibus, I will delve into these books.

I just finished his Before Watchmen series. I didn't expect to like them, but they were alright. The Minutemen one was quite good, while the Silk Spectre one was a bit too hippy / girly for my tastes.

One of my favourite artists, I love his classic pin up and vintage style. Use of tone and colour in the Parker books is incredible and Selina's big score is just beautiful. His spreads look like animations more than stills, a real loss to the industry.
