Why Hollywood hasn't jumped all over Brubaker & Phillips' masterpiece Criminal is beyond me. Here in the second deluxe edition the last three Criminal volumes are collected. The first story, Bad Night, is my favorite. The cross and double cross that you expect is only the beginning. Brubaker creates characters with so many layers, its amazing. The inclusion of the the comic strip aspect was fantastic and added so much to the story. The middle story involving another Tracy Lawless story was very good but was a little too by the numbers but that's being nitpicky. The conclusion was a sad tale of revenge, friendship, and what could have been. Sean Phillips is the perfect artist for this and would not have been the same without him. Ed Brubaker does comic book crime noir as good as anyone in the business. Overall, a near flawless collection!
