THE BEST-REVIEWED COMIC OF THE YEAR COLLECTED JUST IN TIME FOR X-MAS!

Obsession, sex, money, and nostalgia for days long past all collide in THE LAST OF THE INNOCENT

COMICS BULLETIN says this ambitious CRIMINAL story does for kids comics "what Alan Moore did for superheroes with WATCHMEN" and now is your chance to read the comic everyone's been talking about.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
Brubaker uses his cast's familiar relationships to reflect the way nostalgia glosses over the grimness of the past with cartoonish simplicity. And Phillips, using jagged pen-and-ink work and a shadowy palette in the book's grimy '80s sequences, devises a neat trick: drawing '60s-era high school flashbacks in a style close enough to the broad, bright-hued slapstick of old Archie comics to get the point across.
—Douglas Wolk
