Criminal Preview

Check out this MySpace post featuring 10 pages of next upcoming issue of Criminal - one of my favorite ongoing series written by one of my fave writers, Ed Brubaker.

The pages aren't colored yet, but the story of Gnarly (the bartender of the first two story arcs, Coward and Lawless) draws you right in. And actually, it reads and looks fantastic in black and white.

If you haven't read this yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. The first two trades are available at Amazon. Ed Brubaker brings the noir in this series, and one of my favorite things are the extra pages at the back of each issue (available only in the singles, not the trades) of thoughts on noir movies and books and interviews with other writers. Great Stuff, worth you dollars.

yep, can't recommend Criminal highly enough. As a noir fan, I love it, but it's just solid storytelling period. And the art fits it perfectly.
