I recently completed Volumes 1 and 2 of the ongoing comic book series, Criminal. Writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips collaborate perfectly here in this Eisner Award winning crime drama. The series contains four story arcs titled: Coward, Lawless, The Dead and The dying and Bad Night. The Dead and The Dying consists of 3 stand-alone interlocked stories. Criminal is a modern crime noir story where the good guys are bad, and the bad guys are downright cruel. Ed Brubaker, best known for his work on Daredevil and Captain America, creates a wonderfully seedy world of greed and corruption. These character based stories come to life perfectly, thanks to the brilliant penciling of Sean Phillips. You get the feeling that he envisions how the comic would look on film; creating a story board rich with movement, emotion and suspense.

Criminal is published by Marvel Comics' Icon imprint.
