In a world where the five families of Murder, Inc. never gave up their stranglehold on parts of America, the U.S. president tried to pit them against one another and failed. Badly. Now the families are united in their common cause. And there will be blood.
From the Eisner Award-winning creators of POWERS comes another big, bold world of crime-comic alternative history full of sexy, smart fun.

    Bendis and Oeming are at the top of their game. This series might even be better than the original. Time will tell but it looks likely indeed. Read Full Review

    A great issue that jumps around narratively, revealing different aspects of the lead character very well. This is a uniquely entertaining crime drama you shouldn't miss because of the creative ways the story is being told. Read Full Review

    I don't think this is quite as strong as Pearl or Cover, but when it's on, it is REALLY on. Read Full Review

    Bendis' prior work entitles a reader to stay with this title as he is laying the ground work for an “on the run” story like no other. You would do well to pick up the first issue and start collecting this title! Read Full Review

    Outside of a few missteps, United States Vs. Murder Inc. is definitely one of the stronger books to come out of Bendis' modern body of work. Read Full Review

    Myappreciation for this series is based entirely on the script alone. I mustadmit I dont particularly care for Oemings artwork. Im hard pressed tosuggest a story or title for which I think its appropriate. I cant help butimagine how the series would look in the hands of a different artist. Read Full Review
