What's the best possible news to cap off the first week of 2012? News from IDW Publishing's Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall
that Parker: The Score
is set for release this May. The book is the third in cartoonist Darwyn Cooke's
hugely acclaimed comics adaptations of the novels by Donald Westlake aka Richard Stark
, chronicling the stylishly gritty adventures of the eponymous Parker, a ruthlessly efficient career criminal with a penchant for, among other things, settling scores. Ryall's announcement comes with an all-new teaser image
by Cooke that you can check out below.
IDW recently collected Cooke's first two Parker
graphic novels -- The Hunter
and The Outfit
-- in the "Martini Edition," an extremely luxurious slipcased hardcover whose size exceeds that of even DC Comics' popular Absolute Editions. The book was listed in ComicsAlliance's Holiday Gift Guide
, and the graphic novels are sold separately as well.
