this case because it s Brubaker and Phillips I first read Fatale Deluxe Volume 1case because it s Brubaker and Phillips I first read Fatale Deluxe Volume 1 these fellas now Criminal Deluxe Volume 1 And they can sure as shit write and illustrate a story that captivates you with or without supernatural lements see Fatale I love how Criminal tells stories in a round about way That by the nd you have New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood even perspective on characters whose stories were already told Coward is by far my favorite volume Followed by Lawless then The Dead and the Dying Leo Patterson is a brilliantly written character with probably brains and heart than any other person here particularly because he isn t recognized as a badass but rather a coward as the volume title suggests And perhaps that makes him the mostmpathetic character if not realistic Sean Phillips spoils us with his illustrations layouts lettering and inking Illustrators can transcend average work when given control over the visual process and this is totally the case It s rough and dramatic dark and muddy And Val Staples dark and subdued colors also do the trick Again I don t really get into noir But the drama and artwork Criminal is as good as it gets Of all the crimenoir books by Brubaker that I read Criminal is as good as it gets Of all the crimenoir books by Brubaker that I ve read is the best so far It didn t take me long to be fully vested in the characters and wanting to see what happens to them It never ceases to amaze me how Brubaker is able to craft these realistically flawed people and have me Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey eagerly reading on to see what happens nextThere are some similarities here to Sin City A single town where the whole place may not be corrupt but there s at least a side of the city where criminals abound Between Phillips art and Staples coloring yound up with a darkgreyish look with minimal washed out colors producing a dirty sad area that people can t seem to get out of God's Pocket even if they aren t completely bad Morality clashes with life here Brubaker creates real people who are generally good butxternal ЯED events force them into actions and situations that go against their better judgement This flawed humanity is where Brubakerxcels and that s where you find the most fascinating readsThere is some overlap between stories Generally story arcs focus on one character but as you continue reading you see them reoccur sometimes in the background and sometimes background characters become the focus again similar to Sin City There s also some continuity between arcs but not nough to make you feel like you missed somethingI m really curious about Vol 2 to see if all characters come together in a story or if he maintains the same modus operandi This is really fantastic stuff nough that I can t believe someone hasn t picke. A fantastically designed and printed book showcasing the Eisner and Harvey Award Winning crime comics from the creators of Sleeper and Incognito this oversized deluxe hardback The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs edition features Criminal books 1 thru 3 Cowa. D this up as a live action miniseries This is crime noir at its best which is to bexpected with a team like Brubaker and Phillips The art is as brutal and stark as the writing which keeps you guessing the whole way through Even when you think you ve figured something out it doesn t do you any good in the long run because B Noir perfection in graphic form Brubaker s understanding of the workings of the genre is phenomenal and the artwork of Phillips just tips it over the dge There s a lot of talk about Sin
but that collection pales in comparison to what Brubaker and Phillips have without the need for a hyperstylised world This stuff is as real and as bleak as noir gets and I m in love Each dition an Monsieur Pain entirely new story arc yet remaining the in the same milieau as previous stories and one hundred percent authentic constantly adding new understanding to what came before whilst promising many tales of horror to come from the flawed denizens of The Undertow bar Rereading Criminal and it s still best crime comics out there without any doubtsI am refreshing it prior to starting the new ongoing series but I have to say this book is just perfect It has so many layers and reading it again I am noticing so many new thingsCan t recommend thisnough This is a crime comics masterpiece I read the first story arc Coward a while back and I thought it was very well written and njoyable but then I forgot about the series for a while Completing the next two arcs Lawless and The Dead and the Dying I see that the Criminal series is than just well written The stories in these arcs stretch from the 1950 s to the modern day following generations ofCity but that collection pales in comparison to what Brubaker and Phillips have
