Darwyn Cooke on adapting Westlake’s <i>Parker: The Hunter</i>

Darwyn Cooke’s adaptation of Donald Westlake’s crime novel Parker: The Hunter gets some major play from The Los Angeles Times in this profile by Geoff Boucher.

It’s a good article that moves from a brief overview of the recent resurgence of crime comics to Cooke’s approach to the IDW graphic novel and his correspondence with Westlake, who passed away in December at age 75.

“One of the most valuable things in my professional life, one of the big gifts in my career, was the time I got to spend chatting with him through e-mail,” Cooke told the newspaper. “What I tried to do more than anything was to impress upon him my interest in one question: Where did other adaptations fail and what did they miss in the character. How can we get these things on the page?”

Parker: The Hunter received limited distribution last week, but will be available nationwide on Wednesday.
