has released his adaptation of ‘The Hunter’, the first in a series of graphic novels based on the Parker novels by Donald Westlake. Westlake wrote the novels under the pen name Richard Stark.
Being a huge fan of both the artist and the author I had no trouble shelling out my hard earned sheckles to get my hands on a copy; which I promptly devoured in about an hour. Cooke’s artwork perfectly evokes the time period and his storytelling is flowing, making it an effortless read.
The design of the book, including endpapers and embossed cover is commendable, making the whole package feel very deliberate and well thought out.
Hit up IDW’s site (they are the publishers) for a very nice preview of the first 19 pages.
