Captured the book very well. ( )

I didn't get much out of this graphic novel. It was like reading a "reader's digest" version of the actual book. "The Hunter" by Richard Stark (Donald E. Westlake) was great. My recommendation: skip this one, read the real book. ( )

Mr. Cooke depicts his characters with such emotion and conveys so much with gesture and composition that, except for the specifics of the hijacking, you could almost follow the story by the images alone. And when the words and graphics are in harmony, the effect is deliciously brutal
Imagine Mad Men, with its cool stylishness, but with characters even more depraved and rapacious, and you'll have an idea for what's in store when you read The Hunter.
Normally, a straight genre tale where the only point is how many people Parker can kill before he gets what he thinks is coming to him wouldn’t be for me, but although I’m not the audience, I can see the appeal. And the art is beautiful.
