Following his beautiful and admired comics adaptations of three of Richard Parker’s books in comics format, Darwyn Cooke will be illustrating deluxe hardcover editions of the original prose short stories and novels by Donald E. Westlake, IDW announced today.
Cooke will design the series and provide illustrations, with the first book, THE HUNTER, to go on sale in the first half of next year. Additional editions will be released in chronological order thereafter.
Cooke’s Parker graphic novels have won every award there is and reimagined Westlake’s hard0hitting stories for a new audience. With Cooke’s obvious affinity for the material, these will be perfect editions for the bookshelf.
