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.

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 !

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.
