CrimComics offers a new way to approach criminological theory by engaging students with impactful, highly visual illustrated texts. Each CrimComics Issue traces the development of the theory—placing it in social and political context—and demonstrates its application to the real world. The last page of each Issue features review questions and key terms.

Issue 4, Social Disorganization Theory, introduces students to sociological, community-based theories that analyze key aspects of neighborhood collectives like social disorganization, collective efficacy, and street culture in an effort to understand crime. Other issues include Issue 1: Origins of Criminology, Issue 2: Biology and Criminality, and Issue 3: Classical and Neoclassical Criminology.
