Darwyn Cooke vol. 4: The Hunter & The Outfit

Got The Runs

When Darwyn Cooke realized his dream of adapting Richard Stark's Parker novels into comics, the Runners podcasted about it. We move on to Cooke's loving translations of these crime classics to the graphic medium with the first two of his four adaptations, The Hunter and The Outfit. When professional thief Parker is double-crossed by his wife and partners and left for dead, everyone thinks he's gone for good... until he returns to New York to embark on a murderous quest for revenge and remuneration that will put him at odds with both his betrayers and New York's organized crime scene! Then, when the vendetta from the Outfit refuses to go away, Parker and some trusted colleagues undertake to show them just how dangerous a man who's not afraid to be a no-good rotten crook can be. Topics of discussion include the nature and influence of the Parker character, Scott Dunbier's unique niche in the comics industry, and what exactly Wolverine's catchphrase is. Covering Richard Stark's Parker: The Hunter (2008) and Richard Stark's Parker: The Outfit (2009) by Darwyn Cooke (W/A), Scott Dunbier (E), and more. We talk at you - talk back at us!

Darwyn Cooke vol. 2: DC: The New Frontier

Got The Runs

The Runners are kicking it old school, going back to the days of space exploration, Cold War, and looming nuclear apocalypse with Cooke's signature work, DC: The New Frontier! Cooke reimagines DC's classic Silver Age debuting in the historical moments that aligned with their first appearances on the page and rallying together to oppose a sinister threat to all human life. Topics of discussion include test pilots as hero figures, the book's surprising lack of superheroes, and whether Ted Grant could beat Muhammed Ali. Plus, special guest appearances by Quentin Tarantino and JFK! Covering DC: The New Frontier #1-6 and JLA: The New Frontier Special #1 by Darwyn Cooke (W/A), Dave Stewart (C), Jared K. Fletcher (L), and J. Bone (AA). We talk at you - talk back at us! Tweet at us @gottherunspod or email us at gottherunspod@gmail.com!

180 - Parker: Slayground by Darwyn Cooke + The Korvac Saga #9 (Avengers #175)

Some of My Friends Read Comics

We're getting a little burned out on superheroes, so to change things up we're reading an adaptation of a crime novel written by a prolific novelist under one of his many pseudonyms. That's right, it can only be Richard Stark's Parker: Slayground by Darwyn Cooke! Cooke adapted 4 of these stories and we're reading the final one where our protagonist uses an abandoned amusement park setting to elude some evil mobsters. Then we continue The Korvac Saga with Avengers #175 in which nobody is really sure what to do! Next Time: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

[ELHDLT] 8x43 Darwyn Cooke

Es la HORA de las TORTAS!!!

Este mes se han cumplido cinco años de la prematura muerte de un creador con una obra no especialmente extensa, pero de una calidad fuera de toda duda. Curtido en animación junto a Bruce Timm, llegaría tal vez un poco tarde a los cómics, pero nos dejaría títulos del calado de Batman: Ego, El gran golpe de Selina, The new frontier, Spirit, Parker o Minutemen.Sirva este programa como sentido homenaje a la figura de este canadiense un tanto gruñón discípulo espiritual de Alex Toth y Jack Kirby con un talento sin casi parangón.Sabed, oh-yentes, que entre los años del hundimiento de Atlantis y sus brillantes ciudades, tragadas por los océanos, y los años del nacimiento de los hijos de Aryas, hubo una edad no soñada donde podía escucharse el podcast 201 de ELHDT.Selección musical:🎶 Opening - Justice League: The New Frontier OST🎶 The Flash Theme - Justice League: The New Frontier OST🎶 Ain't That a Kick in the Head - Dean Martin
