Nathan Wilson on Richard Stark’s Parker: the Outfit

As a direct follow-up to Hunter, Richard Stark's Parker: The Outfit, despite the beautiful art and design of the book itself which is definitely an eye-catcher on the shelf, will likely only appeal to fans of Cooke's first outing, as events, characters and plot threads continue in this latest adaptation. Delivering upon the teaser released over the summer as an oversized, stand-alone prelude entitled "The Man With the Getaway Face," Cooke's Outfit finds Parker waging his war against crime syndicate boss Arthur Bronson. Where Hunter may have built upon readers' familiarity with the 1999 film Payback starring Mel Gibson, Outfit is a solitary experience absent similar cinematic references.
