    The Daily Fandom - Kyle Scher Oct 23, 2019

    Criminal #9 is a loosely attached issue to the Cruel Summer arc. Jane doesnt appear and besides a few hints, the larger plot remains in the background. While the other issues have been for the most part standalone, forming a mosaic-style arc, they did build upon each other. What Leo will bring to the table is anyones guess, but I look forward to seeing how he connects to the long con Jane is running. Lets just hope his relaxed calmness under pressure doesnt make him cross a line that he can never come back from. Read Full Review
