New iVerse Release – Parker: The Hunter

Via iVerse Comics, for their iPhone app.


You know, we release a lot of spectacular content on the iPhone and iPad devices…and I’m very proud to be able to help bring all of it to you in this new Digital Age that is just beginning…but every now and again there is a book that I love so much, I just have to write about it for a minute.

“Parker: The Hunter” is a very special book to me.  I have always loved hardboiled crime novels, and I have always loved the work of Darwyn Cooke — so when it was first announced that this series was going to be released in print…I was elated to say the least. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, and the day it hit comic shops, I was there.  I plunked down my $25 for the hardcover, and that book is sitting on a shelf right now in my office.  I actually took the book with me to the hospital and read it while waiting to go back for my second child to be born….that’s where I read it for the first time.  It’s an odd kind of book to be reading at that particular moment in your life, and I certainly hope my son makes better life choices that the lead character in the story…but I can’t wait for him to be old enough for me to share this book with him.

This book is an absolute masterwork — and shows how truly powerful the comic book medium can be.

It’s also a book that I think makes the PERFECT case for DIGITAL AND PRINT instead of DIGITAL VS. PRINT.  Here’s why —

IDW is a publisher that is truly committed to making the highest quality comic books available.  “The Hunter” defines this.  The book is printed exquisitely, with every possible attention to detail ironed out.  From the paper color and texture, to the design of the hardcover itself — the BOOK feels like it belongs on a shelf with any other prose hard cover you may own.

For some, though, you might want to try it out first.  Well, if you own an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad — we can help with that, because IDW has released this title digitally for the price of $1.99 per chapter…so you can get the entire story for $8.

I implore you to give this book a try — I think you’ll love it…and if you DO buy it and like it digitally, I think you owe it to yourself to run down to your local comic shop and take a look at the hard cover print edition of this book.  I think when you see the quality of the print material, you’ll be hard pressed NOT to lay down the cold hard cash to add it to your bookshelf.
