Format: Hardcover
Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have a perfect marriage, and you know how I mean that. All of their collaborations have borne some pretty exquisite fruit. From GOTHAM NOIR to the deconstructive brilliance of the SLEEPER books, to the pulp anarchy of INCOGNITO, to the more recent noirish horror of FATALE, you're getting some of the best writing and art that comics have had to offer over the last decade or so. And then, there's CRIMINAL. CRIMINAL is a comic that combines hard-hitting drama, bloody violence, underworld intrigue, steamy sex, and gritty realism. Make no mistake, while Frank Miller's SIN CITY may be a kind progenitor to this particular brand of crime comics, that exists in a much more highly-stylized hyper-realistic yet unrealistic world. And this particular collection of CRIMINAL has the very best arc this few-degrees-of-separation comic has yet to offer as well as some other incredibly powerful works by the pair.

"Bad Night", the first arc this volume has to offer, is the tale of Jacob, the rather timid writer and illustrator of the "Frank Kafka, P.I." comic strips that have made appearances in the "Coward" and the "Lawless" arcs of this comic. He's pulled into a web of deceit by a sultry femme fatale and her thuggish partner as they find out a secret in his past that leads him to a deadly confrontation. Part of the story device that Brubaker employs in this arc is that Jacob finds himself consulting his fictional hard-boiled detective for advice, and acts as a narrator for his own tale. It's something that's a lot of fun to read, as well as being very suspenseful, but lacking a little in emotional conflict.

"The Sinners" brings us back to the world of Tracy Lawless, whose own brutal and unforgiving arc was one of this series' best works.

This was just one of the best comic books I have ever read. Together with volume 1, this is a must read. Ed Brubaker is a genius. The way he gets you invested in a character within a few pages is astounding. Every one of his comics feels like you just saw one of the best films you've ever seen.

Loved this book so much.

Brubaker quickly became one of my favorite authors after reading the CRIMINAL series. I have now moved on to Incognito and FATALE, which I both love. I cant say anything else but perfection. I LOVE THESE STORIES. Growing up watching mobster and crime movies really made me get into this series.
