When the president of the United States puts her foot down against the five families, they task newly made Valentine Gallo and Jagger Rose to "take care of things." That sounds like trouble to us!
In an alternative history set in a world where the five families of Murder, Inc. never gave up power, this sexy crime thriller takes you somewhere you've never seen in comics. From writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Avon Oeming, the Eisner Award-winning creators of POWERS, comes another brand-new chapter of THE UNITED STATES VS. MURDER, INC.

    Brian Michael Bendis does an amazing job shifting gears to focus on developing the plot of UNITED STATES VS. MURDER INC. #3, versus relying heavily on character development. Michael Avon Oeming and Taki Soma expertly combine their skills for the themes and colors in the comic's art. Read Full Review

    The writing is tops on this title. And Oeming is a great collaborator with Bendis. His pictures here are great and expressive. This is a book that isn't talked about very much but it's damn good. The story and art are just awesome. Read Full Review

    Too much family and not enough Rose. However, to really develop a character and the background, one needs issues like these to fill in the blanks! A reader still has time to pick up the early issues. This is a great ride that Bendis is taking us on! Read Full Review

    United States vs Murder Inc #3 is now knee-deep into the core premise of the comic: a fight between the United States government and the mob families that semi-secretly actually run the country. But while this series started off strong, it's faltered a little bit with each issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 7, 2018

    But I likethe story so far. Its a slow burn of a storyline, as details are leaked out intiny droplets. Sometimes that works, but with the price of comic books thesedays, Id prefer to see things move faster. I like to feel Im getting mymoneys worth, without a lot of silent panels of the protagonist doing thingsquietly. This is not cinema, where the creator controls the speed of thenarrative.
