The Parker novels are some of the best crime fiction ever written and Darwyn Cooke is one of the comic industry’s most unique and exciting artist and writer, so this book is a marriage made in heaven. The art is black and white with subtle grey tones which is perfect for the criminal world Parker resides in and his black and white view of the world. The story is gritty and fast paced and Parker is one of the coolest anti heroes there is. This is a great gritty read for older teens, especially fans of Sin City or crime books. If you enjoy the comic make sure and check out some Parker novels in MYS STARK.
