Review: Parker: The Hunter

Darwyn Cooke is hands down the best artist currently working in comics, and now he’s been given the chance to work on what was aparently his dream project, Donald Westlake’s Parker.  So now we have his first of four adaptations, being the first Parker novel, the Hunter.

Sadly Westlake died last year, but I think he would have been proud of the faith he put in Cooke.  The book had been adapted twice previously in the movies Point Blank and Payback, both of which are pretty good, but aren’t quite the novel, and neither of which was permitted to use the character’s name.  Cooke does right by him with a gorgeous book that makes me incredible glad that there will be 3 more of these to come.
