Format: Hardcover
I never knew about this Parker series by Richard Stark so while waiting for the graphic novel (which I had pre ordered due to Darwyn Cooke's art) I read the original novel it is based on. I fell in love with the Parker series and am now up to my fifth book on the series. They are quick, fun, exciting reads with a no nonsense crook (Parker) who you can't help but root for. then I got the graphic novel and I love the throw back art that Darwyn is so reknown for. The fact it wasn't in colour was a bit of a downside but it did fit with the atmosphere of the writing. The story points are all captured well in the graphic novel but it just doesn't pack the punch that the original novel did. It kind of reminds me of a movie that was too true to the novel it was based on. While it is neat to see the novel visualized - the images the book painted in my head were richer to begin with.
Overall, I strongly recommend the original novel and I think Cooke fans will love the art in this book. However, if I wanted to read the story again I would turn back to the Richard Stark novel not the graphic novel.

I love darwyn cooke's art but there is something about parker that I just don't like. I have this book sitting on top of out television stand and am not sure if I am going to keep it or donate it to our local library.

Great stuff all around. Love the story and the black and white. The whole style of the book is bang on. I like the longer narrative parts mixed in with pages of no words at all. Parker is one tough nut. This story is similar to the recent Parker movie which I also recommend. Does he always get involved with guys who want to rip him off?
Look forward to reading another one.

I will be looking for more in this series. I love the style, shades of blues, and Parker walks the the walk. Love his (bad) attitude.

Format: Hardcover
Richard Stark (AKA Donald Westlake) is an old school crime novelist, and Parker is his master creation. A grim, emotionless machine of a man motivated by profit and an urge to get the job done right then get out - Parker's characterization is spot on in this adaptation. This is no mean feat, as Hollywood has tried and failed many times to get Parker right (see the awful Lee Marvin film "Point Blank" for a failed adaptation of this story [or rather, don't]). Cooke's art is lean and mean, effortlessly portraying Parker's gruff and action-oriented style. Cooke deftly handles Parker's original era without seeming to overdo retro-chic. A must read for Westlake fans, Parker fans, and even fans of EC Comics, "Parker: The Hunter" must not be missed.

A special treat as well for fans of Cooke's DC work, including "The Spirit" and "The New Frontier."
