IDW Announces Publication Date of Third Parker Graphic Novel, The Score

The Score by Darwyn Cooke (IDW)

What kind of man tries to knock off a whole town? Parker, of course.

Earlier this month IDW Publishing's editor-in-chief Chris Ryall announced that the third volume in Darwyn Cooke's "Parker" graphic novels would be published this May. He also posted this image (right; click for larger version).

Based on a character created by Richard Stark — a pseudonym used by Donald E. Westlake — The Score is the third book in this graphic novel series by Darwyn Cooke, following 2009's The Hunter and 2010's The Outfit.

Parker is a professional thief. He appeared in over 20 books by Stark/Westlake, several of which — most notably The Hunter, which also served as the basis for the first graphic novel in this series — were made into films.

Though we know nothing about the storyline in The Score other than what's depicted in the image above, we expect it will include elements of the plot in the 1964 novel of the same title.
