Criminal, Volume 3: The Dead and the Dying based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Another brutal, gory and sexy comic book collection about crooks and the underworld. Reminiscent of his run on Daredevil, Ed Brubaker brings us inter-related stories of drug barons, small-time crooks and the criminal world. A lot of sex, dead bodies, beatings and maimings ensue. The artwork and story-writing are powerful and I’d recommend this to all lovers of crime stories.
In another look into this gritty world that Brubaker and Phillips have created, we're shown an overarching story from multiple viewpoints. We get a glimpse into the lives of a handful of characters whose lives intersect. Brubaker easily transports you into this world where no one is good. Maybe good isn't the correct word but almost everyone is deeply flawed. Sean Phillips has made a career on grim and gritty and you can see why. A very good book.
