James R: Now this is the way to kick off 2019: we head back to the world of Teeg Lawless and Co. as Criminal makes a triumphant return. Having reminded us of their greatness with the excellent graphic novella My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips take us back down the mean streets for more top-drawer crime tales. The promo material from Image says this is “The most acclaimed crime comic of the 21st century” - and they’re not wrong. If you haven’t read Criminal before, this will be an excellent place to start, but for the rest of us fans it’s simply brilliant to have this title back as an ongoing series. The icing on the cake is that it’s a double-sized issue for the regular price of $3.99 - that’s amazing value for what’s bound to be the first must-read comic of the year.
