MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: PARKER
The Hunter, the first book in the Parker series, is the story of a man who hits New York head-on like a shotgun blast to the chest. Betrayed by the woman he loved and double-crossed by his partner in crime, Parker makes his way cross-country with only one thought burning in his mind – to coldly exact his revenge and reclaim what was taken from him! Richard (Donald Westlake) Stark’s groundbreaking Parker books are adapted for the first time as a series of graphic novels by Darwyn Cooke. The initial graphic novel brings to life the first Parker book, The Hunter, which introduces readers to the dangerous anti-hero’s cold and calculated world of criminals, thugs, and grifters.

      We do, too. But when your boss sends you to the other side of the state to shoot some BS volleyball game, what are you gonna do?

    I remember Reboot, I liked how Enzo (the kid) had a saved copy of himself turn up at some point so the were two of them, an adult and a younger version. The main villain Megabyte came back from the net as a trojan virus, users (aka us) as Gods and other silly computer stuff like that. I mainly watched ‘cuz it was made in Canada. I really don’t see this working as a movie, even less as a trilogy.

    The City was called “Mainframe”.

    Again it’s missing a certain something with no Rodrigo. Good show, and at 19 I remember Reboot, same company that did Beast Wars.

    We all miss Rodrigo… He’s not dead, though, he’s just pining for the fjords.

      Why do I get the feeling Rodrigo is being kept prisoner in Stephen’s attic?

    Read on the Pitch Plog in September that Fraction moved away to Portland.
