A negative review of Darwyn Cooke’s The Hunter


I’m sure you’ve read many rave reviews of Darwyn Cooke’s adaptation of The Hunter. Here is the only negative review I’ve read:

Darwyn Cooke‘s graphic adaptation of the late Richard (actually Donald Westlake) Stark‘s The Hunter is one of those books that I wanted to like: An adaptation of a novel I love, obviously the work of a dedicated artist, respectful, well crafted, and nicely put together. So it’s with some regret that I have to report I found it oddly lifeless, a storyboard in the guise of a comic book.

I profoundly disagree, but thought the perspective was interesting. You can read the whole thing at Comics Comics.
