The best-selling crime series continues its rollercoaster ride of death and mayhem!

The murder was bad enough, but the coverup will be worse than the crime, especially with a one-time boy detective hot on Riley Richards’ trail and Teeg Lawless trying to stir up trouble.

And remember, Criminal is filled with articles and illustrations that are only available in the single issues, making it the best bargain on the stands!

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. This is a return to excellence. I really liked the last arc but this one is up there with my favorites from the run.

  2. I appreciate Brubaker and Phillips’s timeliness.  These are coming out faster than a fart in a high wind.  BTW, I didn’t feel sorry for Richard’s wife at all, especially when she requested that he not wake her in the morning prior to his trip…Soooo typical of a self concerted, refractory beeeyatch!

  3. As much as I’m loving this story, it’s the amazing production value that really makes me glad I decided to get this in single issues. So worth the $3.50.

    I love collected editions and digital comics, but Criminal (and Red Wing) should serve as a reminder that print comics will only die if creators and publishers let them. Top-notch content in a high-quality package with no advertising will never go out of style.

    Makes me question why some of the Marvel comics I buy are worth $3.99.

  4. Criminal doesn’t sell very well.

    Brubaker puts a lot of love, as you mentioned, into the product and the comic buying public does not really support.

    So print comics could die even if creators and publishers try not to let them.

    I only buy it in issue because I want this comic to continue.

  5. I bought the first arc in single and tpbs. I bought the rest just as tpb’s. This is gonna be another that’s in my collection twice

  6. I buy issues and hardcover.

  7. POTW. Simply because you’d never read an essay on Magnum Pi in the back pages of Detective Comics.
