    Batman's Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Jun 19, 2018

    Crude #3 exceeds previous installments, raising this book up among my favorite creator-owned titles right now, as well as among my favorite Image books period. Its well-constructed and perfectly-executed, a bleak and deeply emotional story about damage caused by emotional distance and dishonesty between fathers and sons. Read Full Review

    The art team here is doing a well-done job bringing out the gristle in this series. No one is happy here in Blackstone but continue to do what they can with some reasons simply due to greed. I do believe some of the best panels here though are any sort of close-ups on our characters. You really see how rough everyone looks and it's great when you see just how angry Piotr is, as he seems to get closer to his answers. Crude is a very vulgar series but the in-focus here has so much heart behind all the blood and violence that is spilled that you care about him finding peace in this whole situation. This continues to be a surprise find as far as any of Image's recently published series. Read Full Review

    Crude has established itself as a comic that works best when it's beating the shit out of someone, and less so when trying to present a murder mystery. Read Full Review
