Do you like your crime fiction hard-boiled? Does it need to have a two-fisted antihero, crooked cops and hot but morally ambiguous dames? Then look no further than this, the "Criminal" Deluxe Edition! I saw a review of this comic in "Entertainment Weekly" and for once they were right on the money. Leo is a career criminal whose last job went horribly wrong. He escaped and now tries to keep a low profile, but he gets in on one last caper... Not the most original outline, I know, but I was immediately taken with Ed Brubaker's tense, terse style of writing. Sean Phillips' art, realistic and detailed without being fussy, complements Brubaker's script beautifully. This makes a great companion to Brian Azzurello's noir masterpiece, "100 Bullets".

Please note that "Criminal" is NOT FOR KIDS: it contains bloody violence, sex and nudity and plenty of bad language.
