If You're Gonna Kill Someone, Kill 'Em For Good.

A couple months ago, I finally watched Point Blank with Lee Marvin.

Other than the extreme Marvintude, this is why:

There's a substantial preview of Darwyn Cooke's adaptation of Richard Stark's The Hunter at IDW's website. (Point Blank and Mel Gibson's Payback were both based on The Hunter.) It's the first of three adaptations of Stark's Parker novels Cooke is doing, and I expect them all to be every bit as juicy as New Frontier. Except in the one genre that might be even more up my alley than superheroes, if that's possible.

Now I just have to read the original novel before the comic adaptation comes out in a few months...
