    That perfect combination of writing and art is what makes this book the best example of crime comics currently on the market. Brubaker and Phillips have nailed the particular alchemy that combines strong, believable emotion, compelling, realistic plots, and the noir mood that seems to permeate through to the very fiber of the pages. Let's hope their brief hiatus to work on the supervillain series Incognito doesn't derail it in any way. Read Full Review

    And that is where Lawless really shines. While readers may be able to relate to what Tracy is doing, and perhaps even why, hints regarding the futility of his task are littered throughout the book. Whether its his conversation with Leo, the anti-hero from Coward, or his growing attraction to one of the thieves crew, the book projects a growing certainty that what Tracy does will make little or no difference. But he does it anyway. If nihilism, action and hard-boiled morality are your idea of fun, Criminal is for you. Read Full Review
