Over at Comics Alliance, a webcomic
was recently posted, on how lapsed readers could be brought back to comics. A couple images of sophisticated, modern comics include all three of Brubaker and Phillips' major collaborations.
We have Criminal
, and even Sleeper
alongside some of my other favorite works, all crime comics of one flavor or another: Brubaker and Rucka's Gotham Central, Chew, and Darwyn Cooke's Parker books.
We found this webcomic as reviews have been released for the second issue of Criminal: The Last of the Innocent
. In the back pages, Brubaker notes that the first issue received "the best press and reviews of anything we've ever done," and he hopes that the rest of the arc "lives up to the hype."
I haven't found as many reviews as last time -- as before, I'll update this post with more reviews as I find them -- but so far, so good.
"Criminal: The Last of the Innocent is quickly becoming the high point of the franchise. Both Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are firing on all cylinders with this latest story, which manages to be more ambitious and more artistically and tonally diverse than any Criminal tale before it." 9.0 out of ten.
Comic Book Resources:
"This arc of 'Criminal' is gearing up to be the best one yet. While this second issue isn’t quite as good as the smashing debut, it is better at the game of comics than nearly every other rag that drops this week." Four-and-a-half stars out of five.
