Book Description

Dec 6 2011
Darwyn Cooke's first two Parker books, The Hunter and The Outfit, are collected in a tremendous, special, oversized hardcover edition - with an additional 65-pages of Darwyn Cooke content and a brand-new story - encased in a beautiful slipcase! Richard Stark's Parker: The Hunter graphic novel debuted in July 2008 to instantaneous popular and critical acclaim. It made the New York Times bestseller list and won coveted Eisner and Harvey awards. The second graphic novel, The Outfit, was released last year and was met with similar response, and is currently under consideration for nominations in this year's awards season. The Hunter and The Outfit tell the story of Parker, Richard Stark's classic anti-hero, as he returns to New York to settle the score with his wife and partner in crime after they betray him in a heist gone terribly wrong. After evening the field and reclaiming his prize, the Outfit decide to do some score settling of their own... and learn much too late that when you push a man like Parker, it had better be all the way to the grave.

5.0 out of 5 stars just amazing July 28 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Just amazing. The artwork is like classic coca cola ads with the colours changing each arc. Beautiful monochromes. The stories themselves are well written and great vendetta yarns. Worth every penny.

This edition of the remarquable work of Darwyn Cooke because of the size (surely close to the original drawing) give all the perception of the great talent of the artist. A must for each fan of Mr. Cooke !

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for your shelf Jan. 7 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I can't speak to story quality as I have yet to read it, but I feel I have to write about how well put together this edition is. Simply put, this book is GORGEOUS, inside and out. The slipcase is sturdy and the slipcase art isn't eye-catching compared to others, but once you pull the book out, it is breathtaking. IDW has truly gone above and beyond in making this book, and I only hope there is a forthcoming second volume that contains the recently adapted stories: The Score, the Slayground.

The book's cover is leather-like, akin to the Absolute Sandman editions and has debossed, silver lettering along the spine which really makes it pop. The paper quality is thick, and has a matte finish, and not glossy like most books, absolutely phenomenal. By flipping through the book you get the sense that this was the way these stories were meant to be read. If you are familiar with Darwyn Cooke's artwork, then you are in for a real treat. For the uninitiated, pull up a seat, dim the lights and grab a stiff drink; Let Darwyn's Parker take you away.

5.0 out of 5 stars IDW printing quality is amazing & Parker too April 23 2013
IDW editior Scott Dunbier is the genius behind 2 of my favorite comics formats ever made. 1. DC ABSOLUTES, and 2. IDW ARTIST series. When he was doing the Absolutes at DC they were IMHO the staple that all other special edition books were compared to. That has not really continued in his absence. Now he is at IDW making some seriously great decisons on the print quality of this publisher. IMHO IDW has the best paper, covers, and lack of outside advertising of any of the comic publishers going today. It boggles the mind how IDW $3.99 comics can have superior paper and covers than Marvels $3.99 books and have no advertising other than pushing their own books. Off track a little sure I know.

Parker The Martini Ed. stands a little taller than a DC Absolute. The print quality is second to none. The cost is unbeliveably reasonable compared to other books of similar format, and it contains an amaziong amount of extras.

The bulk of this vol. contains the 1st 2 volumes of Darwyn Cooke's adaptation of Richard Starks Parker series. Parker The Hunter, and Parker the Outfit. The fantastic crime story of a man betrayed seeking revenge on those responsible. As a huge plus there are 2 short stories included in thie vol. A shortened version Of Parker the Seventh, and The Man with the Gettaway Face. 2 very good stories each adding to the Mr. Cookes vision of Parker.

Also included is a very nice interview with Darwyn Cooke, Ed Brubaker, Scott Dunbier, and a 4th I am forgetting. I think it may be Matt Fraction. Apparently these four all responsible for CRIME FICTION making a comeback into comics. At the end of this book is a fantastic art section depicting films, and acting roles based on or infulenced by Richard Starks Parker. There was alot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book Dec 21 2011
Story and art are wonderful. Very classy, you would not regret buying this. It is one of my "showcase" books. It is as good as any of DC's BEST "Absolute editions", if you know what these are. Darwyn will be doing 3 more Parker adaptations before he is done, (he told me so 2 weeks ago at a signing in Halifax) and, that's great. Worth every penny and more.
