3. Parker: Slayground by Darwyn Cooke

Parker: Slayground by Darwyn Cooke

2.5/5 It was OK

This was a weak showing. I hate to say it, because I love everything about every aspect of this series and Darwyn Cooke's art is always spot-on, but this was just not up to par with the previous books. Not by a long shot. It feels rushed and nothing is allowed to develop or breathe and when you step back the actual plot is so very thin and basic that it would barely make a good one-shot monthly comic of twenty pages or so. Definitely a rare miss. The art is good but I also found it lacking in places which is even more rare. Worth reading if you are a fan of the series but hard to justify a purchase.
