IDW Publishing proudly presents The Hunter, the first of the Parker Hardcover Series.

parker-prose-1[dropcap]I[/dropcap]DW Publishing proudly presents the first of the Parker Hardcover Series. The hunter is the seminal novel from Donald E. Westlake that electrified readers with it’s revolution
ary style and launched two of crime fiction’s most famous bad boys; Pen name Richard Stark, and his magnetic bastard, Parker. This is the first time the entire run of Parker novels will be published in hardcover in in a deluxe format featuring color illustration plates painted by Darwyn Cooke.

The Hunter 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!

For fans of gritty in-your face crime-fiction graphic novels, there is no comparison.


A magnificent comics recreation of Stark/Westlake’s noir classic of crime & vengeance & a stylish evocation of his stony, relentless protagonist.

Cooke brilliantly captures New York’s early-’60s skyline, fashions, & cars, integrating cool gradations against black brushwork as smoothly as a jazz soundtrack.
