This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Richard Stark’s Parker, adapted and illustrated by Darwyn Cooke. The series follows the eponymous Parker, a professional criminal in the 1960s who we are introduced to as he is seeking revenge against several former compatriots who double crossed him and left him for dead.
In the subsequent volumes we see Parker in some of his other adventures, including committing heists, escaping the law, and combating an organized crime group known only as “The Outfit.”
Our hosts for this episode are Tobiah Panshin, Kit DeForge, Joe Preti, and Cade Reynolds. On our next episode we will be reading Engima, by Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo.
