Description: From Harvey Award-Winning Best Writer Ed Brubaker, and Scream Award-Winning Best aRtist Sean Phillips comes the first collection of Criminal, one of the best reviewed comics of 2006. COWARD is the story of Leo, a professional pickpocket who is also a legendary heist-planner and thief. But there's a catch with Leo, he won't work any job that he doesn't call all the shots on, he won't allow guns, and the minute things turn south, he's looking for any exit that won't land him in prison. But when he's lured into a risky heist, all his rules go out the window, and he ends up on the run from the cops and the bad men who double-crossed him. Now Leo must come face-to-face with the violence he's kept bottled up inside for 20 years, and nothing will ever be the same for him again. Much like series crime and mystery books such as Lee Child's Reacher books or George Pelecanos' Washington DC mysteries, each volume of Criminal tells a story that stands on it's own, while building on what has come before and laying the groundwork for what will follow. "Brubaker's dark and genius entry in the classic thief/heist genre. From panel one, you just know it's going to end badly for our hero." - David S. Goyer, screenwriter of Batman Begins, Blade. "No capes, no tights, no super powers in sight; just guns, guts and blood: CRIMINAL is my kind of book." - Charlie Huston, author of Caught Stealing, Six Bad Things, and Already Dead "Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have created some of my favorite crime stories ever, and CRIMINAL is an absolute home run." - Brian K. Vaughan, writer of Pride of Bahgdad, Y the Last Man, and Ex Machina. "Off to a smart, seedy start." - The Seattle Times "A sign that we're in for a long, satisfying ride through the underworld." - The Onion A.V. Club "In any medium, you won't find a better crime story than this." - Nashville City Paper "A sharp, smart comic that rises above the genre's cliches to create something fresh and exciting, making CRIMINAL one of the best new series of 2006." - Pennsylvania Patriot-News Collects Criminal #1-5.
