Parker ‘Scores’ this July

July 12th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Richard Stark’s celebrated antihero returns for another job with Darwyn Cooke!

Rickard Stark’s Parker series, already revered as novels and graphic novels, raises the stakes with Darwyn Cooke’s new adaptation of The Score—a high-octane heist story that has Parker taking aim on his most audacious task yet—robbing an entire town. In Cooke’s previous graphic novels, the menacing, steely Parker has faced all manner of deadly pitfalls while navigating a career through America’s seedy criminal underworld, but this might be his biggest challenge yet—and arguably Cooke’s best entry yet.
“Honestly, it’s hard for me to be objective here,” said Cooke, “but people tell me this one came together pretty well.”
“As usual, Darwyn is being modest,” said series editor, Scott Dunbier, “each book has just gotten better and better… I have no idea how he’ll top this one!”
The third of five planned adaptations, THE SCORE sees Cooke adapting the original 1964 novel, a beloved crime classic and one of the most highly regarded books in the series. A stylish feast for the eyes and a breakneck, sweat-inducing journey that follows one of the boldest capers ever conceived—from the initial pitch to its final, inevitable conclusion, THE SCORE is a book fans everywhere will be clamoring to get their mitts on!
Richard Stark’s Parker: The Score will be arriving in comic shops July 11th and being released digitally via Comixology the same day!
Cooke has won numerous awards during his relatively brief career, including six of the prestigious Eisner Awards (Two of which have been for previous Parker books). He is nominated for three Eisner Awards at the forthcoming 2012 ceremony for his work on the Parker: The Martini Edition.

RICHARD STARK’S PARKER: THE SCORE is a 144 page, full-color, hardcover graphic novel that will be available July 11th, 2012. Diamond order code: FEB120313.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
