This week we read “Parker: The Hunter” as part of our Darwyn Cooke tribute series. An adaptation of a classic crime novel, “Parker” tackles the noir genre as its titular protagonist goes on a tear for revenge after being betrayed after a heist. We talk about Parker the character, the misogyny and tropes of the genre, and how this surprisingly light art style works perfectly for noir. Plus, we thank a listener for his incredible gift.
