That's the case for both the Richard Stark novel and the Darwyn Cooke adaptation.

The snow's an absence of color; things like the opening, the criminal Parker's armored car heist, stand out against it.

There's him and his bombing the car, getting the cash, and getting out.

And then there's the getaway driver turning a right so hard he turns them over.

Up and over. )

He translated them well.

His style fit their tales of the progression of crime and criminals.

The fourth adaptation, of the fourteenth Parker book Slayground, was a great showcase of that.

In it, the titular criminal pulled off an armored car heist that went bad in the escape. He legged it with the money into a nearby amusement park.

Some crooks and crooked cops nearby, in the middle of transacting business, saw him. Then they heard about the thing he'd done nearby on the radio and realized who he had to be and what he was carrying.

Parker, looking for a way out of where he'd come in, found nothing that wasn't locked up.

He saw the criminals gathering outside and knew what they were there for (but not why they were waiting).

So he got things ready for them. )

His style helped tell the tale with detail and fragility.

That clashed with the simple and solid depictions that'd come before in IDW's universe.

The clash was made obvious at the end of issue #3, when the protagonists met an antagonist.

Galvatron, seeking to raise dormant Cybertronians to fight the thing called D-Void, came to Dykayra.

There, he met a face he wasn't expecting.

" I-it cannot be! "

" Oh, but it is, Galvatron.. "

His familiar foe loomed. )

The What If? it posed was the victory of Cobra.

That came with the defeat of G.I. Joe, with precise usage of weather dominating technology.

The answer that followed was how Cobra Commander felt.

First, happy; later, bored. )

It almost pains me that this charming story has to be trimmed down to four pages, but as it's part of the ongoing narrative and it's less than 4 weeks old I feel I have to.



I DO encourage you to get hold of a copy, it really is rather sweet and fun, and I'm having to completely ignore the subplot about Shana's so far absence of anything approaching a love life.
