The second collection of Darwyn Cooke’s adaptations of Donald Westlake’s Parker novels will include ‘The Score’ and ‘Slayground.’
Before his untimely death in 2016, Darwyn Cooke blessed the world with a number of critically acclaimed comics and graphic novels, including four award-winning adaptations of Donald Westlake’s Parker novels. IDW will follow the release of Parker: The Martini Edition in 2011, which collected two of those graphic novels, with Parker: The Martini Edition – Last Call next May.
