Criminal, Vol. 1: Coward

This is going to be a pretty brief review:

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips know how to do noir comics right.  I'm hooked on their Fatale series, and when I saw the first volume of one of their most famous titles, Criminal, on NetGalley, I had to request it.  And I have not been disappointed.

This is raw storytelling with excessively flawed (read: human) characters.  I knocked off a star because the ending was a bit pat and I also had an irrational hatred of the main character's goatee.

But really: read this.

ARC received from NetGalley.
