It’s great to see more creators jumping onto the digital side of comics and all that they bring with it – Parker: The Hunter was an excellent piece of work and I’m looking forward to reading ‘The Outfit’!
This is from Comic Book Resources:
The writer andÂ artist of DC Comics’ “The New Frontier,” which brought DC’s classic characters from World War II to the Cold War era, Cooke is currently adapting Donald Westlake’s Parker crime novels to graphic novel form with IDW Publishing. His first Parker book, “Parker: The Hunter,” won both an Eisner and a Harvey award, and numerous critics namedÂ “Parker: The Outfit,” as one of the best graphic novels of 2010. Cooke is currently working on the next novel in the series as well asÂ a combined edition of the previous two comics.
While his work with other people’s characters has brought him wide acclaim, Cooke has also been teasing a new graphic novel of his own, a fully creator-owned work that he plans to publish as an e-book. At his Boston Comic Con panel this past weekend, Cooke said he wanted the e-book to be fully interactive, and he plans to delay print publication for five years or so in order to encourage people to read it digitally.
