spiderrembrandt said: Have you found any sneak peaks of the illustrations in the next IDW prose release?

I don’t exactly seek out this stuff, to be entirely honest. But I do have Richard Stark, Donald Westlake, and Darwyn Cooke all on Google Alert, so if any information finds it’s way, I usually am the second or third person to know. 

As of now, Man with the Getaway Face looks like this:

It’s due out November 19th. More information can be found here.

I’m honestly surprised we don’t have more preview material, but I’m sure a week off from release we’ll see a bit more. And then the book itself will be out.

The hardboiled universe of Richard Stark:

Donald Westlake, who died in 2008, was born in 1933 and struggled for many years as a short-story writer before becoming a prolific writer of short novels in many genres, mostly crime, though he did pen a few dozen soft-porn titles. During the course of his career, he wrote more than 100 books, using at least 15 different pen names. 

Westlake had a knack for writing tight plots, believable characters and fresh dialog—qualities valuable in any genre but particularly useful in crime novels that rely on plot-driven story mechanics and characters who are tight with their words and seldom make their true intentions known.
