Description de l'ouvrage

1 juillet 2014
In 1962, Donald E. Westlake, writing under the pseudonym Richard Stark, created what would become one of the most important and enduring crime fiction series ever produced - Parker. Westlake wrote more than 20 Parker novels, many considered classics of the genre, and a number of which have transitioned to the big screen. Most notable of these is Point Blank, directed by John Boorman and starring Lee Marvin, released in 1967. Westlake received many accolades during his distinguished career, including being named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writer's of America, that prestigious organization's highest honor. Darwyn Cooke has adapted four Parker books as graphic novels so far. The first three, The Hunter, The Outfit, and The Score have all won Eisner and Harvey Awards. He will be providing all-new color illustrations for The Hunter, the first in a series of hardcover prose novels released in chronological order and featuring Cooke's art. 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 loves 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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Once More, With Force in the Blow 7 juillet 2014
Par Arch Stanton - Publié sur Amazon.com
You’re probably already familiar with Darwyn Cooke’s obsessive adaptations of Westlake’s Parker notorious pulp crime classics into high quality graphic novels. IDW and Cooke decided to go one further, and republish the original prose novels in a new high-quality hardcover format, with new illustrations from Cooke.

The print quality on these books is outstanding. The polished cover, the silky smooth perfectly cut pages, and the color prints are tip top quality, something you rarely see in a print book these days. At $30 it ain’t cheap, but you’re getting something for your money.

The illustrations could have been lifted straight out of Cooke’s recent graphic novel adaptations, but he elected instead to go with full color updates, so you’re getting yet another visual take on the character and story. Any way you cut it, this is some damn fine art from an artist on the top of his game. Don’t expect a lot of it, its a traditional book so there’s only about 10 illustrations, but they are ideal.

The story itself is all stripped out mean-ness and simplicity. For those of you unfamiliar, the original concept for Parker was a lot like Marv from Sin City, but a lot more of a bastard and no qualms about murdering innocents. Forget the modern film adaptations with Mel’s lovable tough guy in Payback or the Statham J-Lo update, this original Parker is more like Lee Marvin’s take back in Point Blank, ruthless and unlikable.

Its a quick read, fast and mean, no extra characters or extra plot to distract. I’m really looking forward to a full library of these, very recommended. RAW.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Return of a Classic 24 juin 2014
Par John J. Pocsik - Publié sur Amazon.com

I discovered Parker when I was in Vietnam, courtesy of book donations from the folks back home. Small, fragile Pocket Book paperbacks,
they took me away - for a time - from dread and unease. Dread and unease, of course, do not exist in Parker's world. His relentless tred carries you down
shadowy corridors and silent littered alleyways of the mind. You didn't know where he was leading you; but you couldn't turn away.

Happily I followed Parker - last name? first? Stark never told us - up through the mid-seventies, when it appeared Parker found himself jammed into a world
he might not prefer to "operate" in. Which, of course, changed further on down the road into 2000. Long live prose-noir!

I love this new volume. I love its heft. its weight, its solidity. IDW and Parker's illustrative champion Darwyn Cooke have revived an old classic and made it somethng
new to treasure again. I hope this project spins out to fruition; and I hope I live long enough to see its completion. In the meantime, for all you Parker fanatics out there, PICK THIS VOLUME UP! Savor its stiletto-sharp prose - and wonder what your world might be like had you never met a guy like

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The King Of Hard Boiled 13 juillet 2014
Par Stephen V. Kempton - Publié sur Amazon.com
In the last several years I have stumbled on to the Hard Boiled Fiction of my youth which I seem to have totally missed when I became absorbed in reading Science Fiction Novels and Comic Books.

I bought and loved Darwyn Cooke's 4 adaptations of the Parker novels , but this is the real thing. The start of a beautiful collection of Hard Cover Books faithfully reprinting all of Richard Stark's Parker novels. The novel includes 10 full page painted illustrations from Darwyn Cooke which are fantastic and a new introduction also by Cooke.

The story is a classic novel of Revenge about a life long criminal who sets up a crime then to be double crossed by his crew and even his wife. He is left for dead. The story is so good that it has twice been adapted as a movie once with Lee Marvin and then with Mel Gibson in the Parker role.

Richard Stark is the alias of master fiction writer Donald Westlake. This is as good if not better then anything done by Raymond Chandler, James D McDonald, Mickey Spillane or David Goodis. Fantastic Hard Boiled writing with sparse violent prose and beautiful sexy women. I have eagerly pre-ordered the next volume.

My Highest Recommendation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Parker is back! (Again!) 26 juin 2014

The Parker books have been in and out of print since they first appeared and I have owned most of the editions. To finally have them in a hardcover set with the added bonus of illustrations by the great Darwyn Cooke is more than I ever could have hoped for. If you are an old fan or just discovering these books you are in for a real treat. Here's to the late great Donald Westlake (aka Richard Stark) and now Darwyn Cooke for a job well done.

Without knowing it, I've been a Stark (Westlake) fan for years. Parker was a loner, coarse, and lethal years before the Man with No Name or (Frank Miller's) Batman. Kudos to IDW and Darwyn Cooke. You've introduced the genre to a new legion of fans.
