Users who pulled this comic:


  1. First issue was awesome!  I can’t wait to read this one, and figure out what the backup essay is this time. 

  2. Loved the first issue. Very curious to see where this is going.

  3. I bet he kills his wife.

  4. First issue was maybe the best opening to any Criminal story yet can’t wait.

  5. Love this twisted version of Archie.

  6. Another solid chapter. The layers of Riley’s psyche are being revealed, and something tells me he is not exactly an innocent guy in over his head. Brubaker and Phillips keep proving why they are one of the best duos working today. POTW is pretty damn competitive this week. 

  7. Wow. This story is going to be a comic for the ages. No Doubt about it.

  8. If you ever wondered what Archie would do if he woke up one day and realized that Veronica was a unfaithful soul killing shrew, this book presents one possible outcome.  Mr. Lodge, Jughead, Betty and Moose are all here, just with differnt names.

    It makes me pine for the weekly Archie updates from Conor….. 

  9. This made me remember why Criminal was my favorite book being produced. This is shaping up to be the best story they’ve done so far.
