    The storytelling is set at the perfect pace and the artwork sets the perfect tone. This fourth issue is dark, depressing, and exciting, yet there is something extremely beautiful about all of it as well. This team knows how to execute this flawlessly and lucky for us, we get to experience this magic every month. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Apr 23, 2019

    While a perfectly solid piece of pulpy noir, Criminal #4 is caught in a web of references instead of being able to stand alone as a satisfying issue. Read Full Review
