Darwyn Cooke’s first two Parker books, The Hunter and The Outfit, are collected in a tremendous, special oversized hardcover edition-with an ADDITIONAL 65 pages of Darwyn Cooke content-including a BRAND NEW story and a beautiful slipcase!

Richard Stark’s Parker: The Hunter graphic novel debuted in July 2008 to instantaneous popular and critical acclaim. It made the New York Times best-seller list and won coveted Eisner and Harvey awards. The second graphic novel, The Outfit, was released last year and was met with similar response, and is currently under consideration for nominations in this year’s awards season.

The Hunter and The Outfit tell the story of Parker, Richard Stark’s classic anti-hero, as he returns to New York to settle the score with his wife and partner in crime after they betray him in a heist gone terribly wrong. After evening the field and reclaiming his prize, the Outfit decide to do some score settling of their own… and learn much too late that when you push a man like Parker, it had better be all the way to the grave.

This very special collection measures an impressive 9 x 13 inches and weighs in at 334 pages. Extras include an extended art gallery section as well as a brand-new 8-page Parker story by Darwyn Cooke, unique to this volume.

  1. I already own both OGN’s and the smaller (though bigger) pamphlet middle comic. Couldn’t resist the large size version.

  2. Tempted, but I can’t bring myself to do it. The 8 new pages are interesting. With 3 more books on the way ( if you have not heard they have added a 5th book to the future releases ) I can’t help but hope they do a full collected edition once the story is complete.

  3. Of course Martini Parker has to tower above my DC Absolutes and intimidate them. It only makes sense.

  4. Bought it for half-off on Thwipster! I’ll donate my first volume to the library to make room.

  5. Some observations:

    The Man with the Get Away Face (22 pages?) is removed completely from the Outfit and presented on its own a short story between the Hunter and the Outfit. Also there are some missing panels from the Outfit in this Martini Edition. This occurs around the card game in the motel near the end of this story’s first chapter.

    I don’t think there were more than 2-4 panels missing.
