Comic you SHOULD be reading.

Nothing makes me happier in any given month than seeing the next issue of Criminal in my pile of new books. Criminal, for those who don't know, is a crime-noir comic created by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. The book is basically a series of mini-series, featuring a different protagonist in each storyline, and is very easily accessible for new readers.

The first issue of the new storyline 'The Sinners', just shipped last week, and it features the return of Tracy Lawless (last seen in book 2, Lawless). The good news is that you needn't have to have read Lawless to get into this story. It tells you all you need to know about Tracy, and why he's in the position he's in right now.

Criminal: The Sinners is monthly, and costs $3.50. Aside from the comic story, there are articles included as well. Ed Brubaker writes, Sean Phillips illustrates, and Val Staples colors. Buy this book!
