Lee's Sure Fire Can't Miss Pick of the week 7-22-09: The Hunter
By Darwyn Cooke.
The writer and artist of my most favorite superhero story ever (DC The New Frontier) takes on the writing of Richard Stark. I have to admit, I have never read any Stark but the movie Mel Gibson made based on this character, Payback, was entertaining (even if the acting left a little to be desired).
Mostly I am excited, because I have loved the current resurgence in the Crime genre in comics. Between Rick Geary's true crime tales, Scalped, Criminal, and the up coming Dark Horse Noir, as well as Vertigo's upcoming Crime imprint. It is a great time to read about the underbelly of society.
