The new Parker adaptation, Slayground, based on the book of the same name by Richard Stark, arrives in stores and on-line outlets this week!

To give you a bit more of a taste, Comics Alliance has the first dozen pages or so:

Right here!

Any word yet on when/where the Slayground convention exclusive cover will be revealed?

Not sure anyone answers comments here, but here goes:

Does anyone know if Mr. Cooke may do more Parker graphic novels? I know he's going to illustrate the prose novels, but I would rather hold out and read them as comic books, if such a thing may happen at some point.

Thanks for reading!

There's at least one more Parker adaptation in the works - Butcher's Moon, which is one of the very best Parker novels.

Such great news. Thank you for the quick response!

Cooke is adapting Butcher's Moon?! is that what the tease at the end of Slayground is referring to?

Also I can't find any word on when we can expect these illustrated prose books as in when they'll come out or how they'll come out, will they be out as a whole or one at a time sorta deal?

thanks for the reading.

Yes, Jarrod, Butcher's Moon is coming in a year or so. In case you haven't read it, it deals with things that are introduced in Slayground so in order to do Butcher's Moon, it was kind of necessary to do Slayground first.

News on the illustrated prose books is about to be posted on this very blog, too!
