    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Aug 27, 2019

    Criminal’s seventh issue is another gritty and exciting issue with plenty of hints to other parts of the story that have me ecstatic for more of the series. Criminal is the series I most look forward to every month and as long as this team continues to put out excellent issues like this one and the previous six, it’ll hold on to that place.

    If Sean Phillips, Jim Lee, Jeff Lemire, and Matt Kindt, could just draw all my books, Id be so happy. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Aug 20, 2019

    With its overlapping storyline harking back to previous issues, Criminal #7 adds another layer to a dense storyline that offers readers a discerning look at a compelling cast of characters whose moment of truth is fast approaching. While knowledge of what has gone before is useful to add to the enjoyable experience of this issue, Criminal #7 is a decent jumping on point for new readers, as the main event " the next heist, is just around the corner.

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Aug 22, 2019

    My only gripe is that even though every issue is readable as a standalone, I feel it works far greater as a whole piece. By far the best value book on the stands today, and a grimy look at society that manages to be both timely and timeless. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 21, 2019

    Sean Phillips' art is fantastic. Both the style and the use of shadows throughout give the reader a sense of the dark, ominous tone of the story. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Criminal #7 is yet another reminder that this genre-based series is not defined by its story, but by the immense imaginations and interests of two of the form's modern masters. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Aug 20, 2019

    In a disarming turn, the tension is further deflated from this arc. But it's in service of an endearing albeit rough-edged portrait of the Lawless gang. Read Full Review
