This week's comics

Perhaps the only thing that needs to be on your comics shopping list this week...

Criminal Deluxe Edition Vol. 1: A mammoth 432-page collection of Ed Brubaker's & Sean Phillips' consistently excellent crime noir series. If, like me, you've been buying the single issues, this is probably going to tempt you to shell out for something that will sit nicely on the bookshelf.

With it's interconnected cast of characters and plots, I imagine this will read very well in collected form. Lots of extras including a Criminal short story and the never-before-printed five page "movie trailer in comics form" that Brubaker and Phillips created to announce the series online, plus illustrations, selected articles, behind-the-scenes glimpses, painted covers.
