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.
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.Read more ›

Incredible. The best possible version of an already amazing comic. Darwyn Cooke is a genius!Published 1 month ago by Glenn Armitage
