    Awesome

    Had never heard of the Parker character before.

    The cover caught my eye on the shelf: the image spoke of a man who was neither saddened nor even concerned by the dead woman laying behind him. There was so much unsaid in that cover that I dropped 25 bucks to get the story...
    ...which begins with almost 12 pages without any real dialogue from Parker (or anyone else). And that's what makes this a 4-star graphic novel, that Cooke's images and single-color art tell the story, make words almost obsolete, but the result is that - when characters DO speak - we listen.

    And the Parker character isn't likable but because he's THE American anti-hero (think Eastwood in Fistful of Dollars, but 10X meaner) we want to follow him to see what his next nasty move is.

    To sum it up...Lee Child's Jack Reacher is Parker if Parker had been sent to Westpoint and then booted out of the Army...

    just ordered "The Outfit"...can't wait.

    A truly unique graphic novel!

    Darwyn Cooke has always been a star in comics to me. His stuff always is interesting and not the standard fair. Here, his adaptation of Richard Stark's Parker is amazing. The whole feel of this book is something that every comics fan, or even just a casual reader should experience. The coloring is moody and dark. The lettering seems to fit perfectly. Cooke's artwork is ideal for the theme and time period. My only problem, and that word is too strong, is that it was a pretty fast read. I guess I just am greedy and somehow wanted more. Everyone should read this!
