Mr. Cooke Goes to Washington

This is a pretty cool bit of news for fans of Darwyn Cooke's work.  He'll be doing a reading and signing at the Smithsonian American Art Museum on January 30 at 4 PM.  Cooke will read from Richard Stark's novel, and demonstrate his adaptation process, while showing his artwork from the adaptation from The Hunter, also known as iFanboy's 2009 book of the year

If you're in the area, it'd be a crime to miss this event.  There are a limited number of tickets, so get moving!



  1. I wish I could go, but I don’t have the money for the ticket to DC. If anyone goes, tell how it went.

  2. Very exciting news for comics in general and for Mr. Cooke in particular.  Wish I could be there.

  3. I will be there!  YES!

  4. This is tearing me up – I want to go, I know I can go, but do I really want to put up with the DC headache? GAAAHHHHH!!!!!

    Yeah, I’ll go. Should be good.

  5. Smithsonian, huh? Congrats to Mr. Cooke, thats a hell of a venue! Its a bit too far of a drive for me to attend, but ifI were closer, I’d attend in a heartbeat.

  6. I will be there! Any interest in an ifanbase meet-up afterwards?

  7. Richard Stark died today, according to the Boston Globe. No obit yet…

  8. You mean Robert Parker (a fellow crime novelist). Stark (Donald Westlake) died in December of ’08. 

  9. A misread, I was reading an article by a guy named stark when I read it, my apologies

  10.  Met him and his wife at the show in Montreal last fall and they were great.Was able to spend some time with them and also got Darwyn to sign my copy.Another great Canadian talent.
