Criminal Comics / Ed Brubaker, Sean Philips [It’s a Crime: New Indian Express]

30 November 2016

Graphic Novels cost too much, they say… But think of it this way – you can read the best graphic novels thrice. The first time, read it for the story. The second time, read it for the dialogues. And the third time, read it for the artwork. So the best graphic novels are very reasonably priced, I would say.
And one of the best pure crime graphic novels is the ongoing series, ‘Criminal’.

I have only read the first two storylines of the series, written by Ed Brubaker and with artwork by Sean Philips. No superheroes, no supernatural elements, no mythology, just gritty, tightly written crime stories. I would definitely recommend them to any fan of crime fiction who would like to try something different from the run-of-the-mill.
