Richard Stark's Parker
A Graphic NovelBook - 2009-
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,a The Hunter , which introduces readers to the dangerous anti-hero's cold and calculated world of criminals, thugs, and grifters.
