    All the elements are right for Criminal, let's hope for a excellent run here. (And by the way, the first issue is all story with no ads. So what are you waiting for!?) Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Sep 16, 2006

    Criminal may be a guided tour through the underworld, but its basically about a guy without a future. Hes burdened by his past and seems to have nothing in the way of fond remembrances. And the nature of his work, his life precludes the possibility of any kind of future. Leo merely exists solely in the present, and we see that its an empty, half-life that he doesnt even know he needs to escape. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kelvin Green Oct 9, 2006

    There is just enough potential here to keep me fairly interested in what Brubaker and Phillps have in store, but I can't deny that this comic has some fairly major flaws. This just isn't the groundbreaking work of genius it's supposed to be, but more disappointingly, it's also nowhere near as good as a Brubaker/Phillips book should be. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Oct 11, 2006

    Criminal #1 is a pretty good issue. It doesn't make me want to run out and read other non-super hero American comics, but I am certainly enjoying this change of pace. If you enjoy Sean Phillips' style of art, then you will definitely like this title. At any rate, Brubaker's writing makes Criminal a title worth checking out. Read Full Review
