Comic Review: Criminal Volume 1 Coward

Criminal Volume 1 Coward

Criminal is like an un-guilty guilty pleasure. I know that I should feel guilty for wanting to see/revel in the life of a criminal but I don’t feel bad about it at all. Icon has brought together two guys, Ed Brubaker (Captain America, Catwoman) and Sean Phillips (The Invisibles, Sleepers), a team-up that isĀ  guaranteed to make an enjoyable story.

Leo is a professional criminal making sure everything is planned down to the last detail. If the heist is starting to go south, you can bet he has a plan to make a quick exit. Now his skills are needed when he runs into two crooked cops. They have a heist that can’t fail and will make them rich. Of course, there is always a chance that things won’t work out as planned.

With Criminal, you feel all the things associated with that word while reading. You feel the desperation and fear of a job gone wrong, the seedy bars and the dark alley’s. Each volume is a self contained story with new characters. Occasionally names and characters will cross over but not in a forceful way. If you’re looking for a comic with a pulp noir feel criminal is it.
