The Award-Winning crime series continues! Tracy Lawless is getting close to finding the killers he's been searching for... but before he can put all the pieces together, he finds himself in their crosshairs in Chinatown, with enemies all around him. This can't end well, or wouldn't be an issue of Criminal, would it? And remember, all the single issues of CRIMINAL are packed with articles and extras that are not reprinted in the collections. Mature Content .... $3.50

    This chapter of Criminal saw Tracy Lawless gets pushed to the brink of death. So much so that I can't believe he's going to survive this series. In true noir fashion though, should it even surprise me if he ends up dead? We'll see how this all ends up next issue. This is one of the best issues Brubaker has ever put together. Read Full Review

    Criminal was once the King of the Power Rankings, but the last few issues stripped the title of its crown (don't get me wrong, it was still awesome, just not as awesome. With this issue, though, things are back to the levels that made this series the single best comic on the stands. In any other week, this would have been the easy choice for Book of the Week, but the competition was just a tad too fierce for this one to take the top spot. Don't let that stop you from picking this up, though, as this is still require reading, True Believers. Read Full Review

    Is "Criminal: The Sinners" #4 a good comic? Definitely. Is it better than most comics being published right now? Absolutely. When you're a series where your average issues are still a solid 4-star book, it's a nice reminder that even when you aren't blown away, you're still getting a great comic. Read Full Review

    I'm surprised I'm five volumes in and have yet to talk about Phillips' art. Well, I guess I'll fix that now and say it's some of the best I've seen. I love how gritty and unpolished it looks, and yet there's still some amazing imagery every issue. Can't think of a creative team that works together better.
