Richard Stark's Parker: The Outfit Reviews
It's Darwyn Cooke, how could you go wrong?
Cooke understands the character and does the impossible; adds even more worth experiencing. Darwyn is a mad genius who makes it look effortless. It's a love /hate thing.
The only reason I'm not giving a 5 is beacuse it does get slow about halfway through. I loved the Hunter, the first of the series. The highlight of The Outfit is it's presentation. The style of the hardcover is just like it's predecessor, looks like something off my parents bookshelf from the 60's or early 70's. I love the how they used several different classic cartoon/comic styles to tell the stories of the associates of Parker. Worth your time and money if you are a noir fan.
Too bad we can't get film adaptations of this caliber. What say we let Cooke do animated films based on these?
I've read all the Parker books, this graphic novel is a wonderful to get people to find this character. Cooke is great and shows another side of the storytelling ability of Donald Westlake.
Darwyn Cooke is no underground talent, but his style, passion for design and mastery of the line makes his graphic adaptation of Richard Stark's "Parker" a series that screams "indie-cred". Parker Vol.2: The Outfit takes everything that made volume one great and adds to it... like a great video game sequel, "The Oufit" doesn't change the winning formula, it just adds to it so that the experience is similar to the 1st title but completely different at the same time.
