Overview

Darwyn Cooke is the Eisner Award-winning writer/artist of such classics as DC: The New Frontier, Selina's Big Score, and last year's smash-hit, The Hunter. Now, Cooke is back and following up the New York Times best-selling Hunter with a heart-pounding sequel: The Outfit. After evening the score with those who betrayed him, and recovering the money he was cheated out of from the syndicate, Parker is riding high, living in swank hotels and enjoying the finer things in life again. Until, that is, he's fingered by a squealer who rats him out to the Outfit for the price they put on his head . . . and they find out too late that if you push Parker, it better be all the way into the grave! Darwyn Cooke is an Eisner- and Emmy-winning creator whose adaptation of Richard Stark's first groundbreaking Parker novel has earned him multiple 2010 Eisner Award nominations!

Editorial Reviews

Douglas Wolk
Cooke distills Westlake's lean prose to concentrated bursts of scruffy chiaroscuro, looming negative space, pacing-tiger tension and ice-cold violence. The highlight is the middle section, in which Parker's associates carry out a series of raids on mob assets. Each sequence evokes a different early-'60s idiom—men's magazine ­illustration, low-­budget animation storyboard, pulp-novel cover. Cooke's glee is palpable…

Darwyn Cooke has this unique ability to completely transfer the reader's mind to the landscape he has created. Reading this I can completely see and almost feel every aspect of this criminal empire in the early 60s. There are so many unique panels and pages that each seems like a artistic masterpiece. I loved the different jobs his crew was pulling and exactly how they were pulled off. Overall this was really fantastic and my only beef is that it wasn't long enough which is something Cooke can't really control based on the source material.
