Words can't begin to describe how enamored I am with this story. It's honest, hard-hitting, and so well written. Brubaker does such a wonderful job getting you into the heads of both men and their situations. You can't help but feel sympathy for either of them, despite their faults. When the crap hits the fan (and it does), it'll leave you gasping for what happens next. Like I said, the story will continue, but with this expanded issue (32 pages), Brubaker is able to keep it all self contained. Don't wait for the trade to come out. Buy this today. You'll be happy you did. Read Full Review
Whether you're an avid Criminal reader or a newcomer jumping on with this issue #1, it should take a lot more than a great-but-not-quite-brilliant issue like this one to dissuade you from viewing this title as one of the best venues for crime fiction around. Still, I know I for one am looking forward to when Brubaker returns to telling multipart tales as opposed to short stories. And at the very least, I'll never look at the Undertow's bartender the same way again. Read Full Review
