Anyone get a chance to read Parker since its release last week?Â I have it sitting here, but have been quite swamped with comic convention coverage, and other work stuff to dive into it.
In its first week of release, IDW is proud to announce that Darwyn Cookeâ€™s The Hunter, an adaptation of Richard Starkâ€™s novel, debuted on The New York Times best seller list at number three. The Hunter has earned high praise for Cookeâ€™s compelling interpretation of Parker, and has been critically lauded nationwide by The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post and Entertainment Weekly.
Darwyn Cooke, the Eisner Award-winning writer and artist of such classics as DC: The New Frontier, Selinaâ€™s Big Score, and The Spirit, brings to life one of the true classics of crime fiction: Richard Starkâ€™s Parker. Stark was a pseudonym used by the revered and multi-award-winning author, Donald Westlake.
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 the thought of revenge burning in his mind.
