Richard Stark's Parker SlaygroundDarwyn Cooke's masterful and multi award winning series of Parker graphic novels continues with Slayground Parker whose getaway car crashes after a heist manages to elude capture with his loot by breaking into an amusement park that is close A re read 32818 after finally reading the novel on which it was based and loving it Original review 82016 edited a bit The fourth and I presume last of the adaptations made of Richard StarkDonald Westlake's Parker crime novels since Cooke died this year Parker is one of the hardest of hard boiled detectives and somehow you gotta like that if not uite like him I liked this volume least of the four books Cooke adapted in part because it is very short getting at the essence of the tale but missing some of the play in it It takes place on a Fun Island after all Aren't playgrounds supposed to be fun Okay there is one terrific fun thing in it; Cooke creates a fold out park guide for Fun Island The Happiest Place on Earth heh you didn't read the fine print complete with a map which is wonderfulThe art from Cooke remains strong to the very end retro sixties design though really stylized and hip And while the rendition of Stark's story is a little straightforward than Cooke's first three adaptations there is an attraction in that too; it's lean and mean stripped down to its bare essentialsThe idea in this story is that Parker and two other criminals seem to have pulled off a successful heist of an ard car But the escaping car ends up in a wreck and Parker heads out alone hiding out in an amusement park that only has one entrance with a satchel of cash Parker sets up traps for all the crooked cops who are trying to catch him as you might expect him to do and this is fun a Fun Island for crime fans Primarily because the art is just so good I raised by initial 3 star rating to 4 in site of the leanness and predictability of the storyCooke also adds a short story version it's really just a vignette of Stark's seventh Parker story The Seventh which is way too short but still well done and fun But if you like crime stories you have to check out these 4 book adaptations for which Cooke deservedly won Eisner awards Comics like this also excellent includes work from Brubaker and Phillips Criminal The Fadeaway Kindt Mind Mgmt Dept H and Tardi Like a Sniper Lining up His Shot West Coast Blues
