The Hunter , the first book in the Parker series, is the story of a man who hits New York head-on like a shotgun blast to the chest. Betrayed by the woman he loved and double-crossed by his partner in crime, Parker makes his way cross-country with only one thought burning in his mind - to coldly exact his revenge and reclaim what was taken from him!Richard (Donald Westlake) Stark's groundbreaking Parker books are adapted for the first time as a series of graphic novels by Darwyn Cooke. The initial installment brings to life the first Parker book, The Hunter , which introduces readers to the dangerous anti-hero's cold and calculated world of criminals, thugs, and grifters.

An Adult graphic novel version of Richard Stark's "the hunter". Darwyn Cooke does an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the novel as well as the style of the time period. Cooke is well-known for this older style that reminds one of the cartoons and graphics of the 50s and 60s. But despite the fact that is a comic book version, it is still an adult book and I would not recommend children reading it. Very good.

This is great! For hard-boiled fans, this is a must. The Parker novels are great and Cooke has captured that edgy 60's vibe. Very cool.
