The Hunter

IDW has posted 19 pages from Darwyn Cooke’s adaptation of The Hunter, the first in a series of graphic novels based on the Parker novels by Donald Westlake. Westlake wrote the novels under the pen name Richard Stark.

Check out the first three pages after the jump, or go to the IDW site to read all 19. The first scene is classic:

INCREDIBLE! I just re-read the Hunter last week and Darwyn Cooke captures it perfectly. His Parker is even similar to how I imagined him to look from Stark/Westlake’s novels. This is bought!

I really enjoy the Donald Westlake (as Richard Stark) Parker character and stories in print an on film. The art style is unique and more than a little distracting. If it’s collected, I’ll read it in trade format.

This isn’t a preview of a first issue. It’s being released as a 144 page hardback.
Man, Cooke nailed the feel of the beginning of this book. Fantastic.

I have been waiting for this ever since it was announced, and this preview does not disappoint!
The only thing that can hold me off until the first book drops, is rereading the few Westlake books I have…

I am very excited about Darwyn Cooke’s adaptation of The Hunter, and I hope he works his way through some of the other books in the series. They are amazing.
