      I could not imagine a better illustrator for Richard Stark s Parker books It s like a marriage made in heaven Cooke s fantastic illustrations to Mr Westlake s writing under the pen name Richard Stark stories is simply fantastic.Here in this over sized book are the first two installments of the series They were first printed separately by IDW in individual installments, and if nothing else, check those out However this edition adds so many extras and with the increase in page size, this is truly [...]

      Fantastic Cooke has really outdone himself and it s amazing to see what he can do when not restricted by an overbearing company This is such a unique piece using graphics and prose to recreate not change or interpret the original novels The story was so good I want to both read the novels and see some of the films that were inspired by them You ve got to love noir though it s fairly dark and gritty, but not over the top violence It takes place in the 60 s, and one small thing that made me uncomf [...]

      I do like the art of Darwyn Cooke It s stylized 1930s 1940s feeling In this case the story appears to be taking place in the 50s in the US The main character is a con man who was betrayed and left for dead The story starts with him coming to New York and searching for the people who betrayed him for pay back, in money and blood The main character isn t a good person But, he has a code he follows He is the man of honor among thieves He s the kind of man you would want on your side in a survival s [...]

      This gorgeous over sized collection brings together all of the Parker stories that Darwyn Cooke has done to date I have the first two books in their original form, and am absolutely in love with them everything, from their size to the paper they re printed on, is great Because of this, I was hesitant to double dip and pick up the Martini Edition, even though it contained tons of extra material I bit the bullet at Christmas though, and I am so glad that I did This special edition takes everything [...]

      If you read Darwyn Cooke s New Frontier or Selina s Big Score, it s a no brainer to see him adapting the Richard Stark Parker Novels It s a perfect fit He captures that early 1960 s feel so elegantly and precisely, using an illustration style that comes from that era That s because he loves this time and he for this collection, it s obvious how he feels about the Parker books.About 10 years ago, I started reading the Parker books I would read one a year while I was on vacation in the Cape I love [...]

      Utterly fantastic, of course, and the presentation here just makes everything sing even Loved seeing the final chapter of The Seventh here, too, and I just want to say that everybody needs to read this.

    7. Doyle on said:

      Darwyn Cooke has quickly become my favorite artist, and he is right at home drawing art deco settings for Richard Stark s hard boiled noir Parker series Cooke s mastery of simplified mod design perfectly fits the the quick paced tempo for these thrilling heists and gives these stories a genuine sense of placement This large book presents Cooke s art in dimensions closer to the original art so that the reader can soak in all of the monochromatic glory in each page Having never read the original s [...]

    8. John on said:

      The 1st 2 Parker novels rendered in Darwyn Cooke s elegant art, plus a thorough interview from Comic Book Resources, largely on Westlake s creation of and understanding of the character The large format really improves what were already a couple amazing graphic novels A very respectful adaptation of highly acclaimed novels with amazing artwork If you had someone who thought graphic novels were all capes tights, this would be an amazing discussion starter.

    9. Dean Olson on said:

      This is a work of art If you are fan of crime and heist genres then this is the book for you Based off some of the famous novels by Richard Stark that I haven t read yet This book is about a cold hearted professional thief has he has revenge on those who burned him The oversized collection is a great showcase of Cooke s art Simplest but stunning.

    10. Portobellord on said:

      This might be the most gorgeous thing I own The artwork is stunning, the story is superb and it is presented in a fantastically over sized edition with some great extras Kudos to IDW for putting out this edition.

      Amazing narrative Superb drawing Parker is a milestone in the recent comic scene Page after page I keep on thinking how easy to do a thing like this it seems, but it s not A must read

    12. Joel Peabody on said:

      The oversized edition makes it all the impactful and beautiful.

    13. Ted Williams on said:

      I really don t need to say anything about Darwyn Cooke s art, and the Martini Edition really shows it off beautifullyIf you can find a copy treat yourself you won t be disappointedGreat stuff

    14. Chad Seewald on said:

      Between the ridiculously phenomenal art, the stories that have stood the test, who could want anything

    15. Chris on said:

      There s a really cool conversation in the start of the book between some writers including Darwyn and Ed Brubaker I love that Brubaker and Cooke were friends, two of my favourite comic book creators side by side chatting about Parker and crime comics in general.There s a moment that gave me a moment of sadness during the discussion Brubaker asks if Cooke was planning on adapting all the Parker books and Cooke jokingly responds that he won t live long enough I still think about Cooke and how he s [...]

    16. Sourajit on said:

      Amazing sense of pacing and exactly the right amount of noire makes this comic book great instead of good, so great that the next movie should use this series as the only storyboard it ll never need.
