Take Note: Darwyn Cooke’s comics adaptation of Parker: The Hunter (at # 11), visually recreates the spare syntax and relentless narrative drive of Donald Westlake’s hardboiled crime masterpiece. IDW p.r. manager Anna Maria White says the book is now in its second printing, riding a wave of rave reviews in the New York Times, the Washington Post and the L.A Times.

Pantheon publicist Michiko Clark says the 18,000 copy first printing of David Mazzucchelli’s acclaimed graphic novel, Asterios Polyp (at # 13) has sold out, but more are on the way.

In this hardcover collection of David Petersen’s much-praised fantasy series, Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 (at # 15), the mouse territories struggle to survive a severe winter.
