    Written by ED BRUBAKER. Art & Wraparound Cover by SEAN PHILLIPS. This fall crime noir smacks you right in the face, as award-winning writer Ed Brubaker, whose recent hits on Daredevil, Captain America and the X-Men have made him one of the top writers in the field, joins best-selling Marvel Zombies artist Sean Phillips for CRIMINAL, a new ongoing series from Icon. Navigating through a world of smoky barrooms and double-crosses to present tales of heists, murders and cons, CRIMINAL is determined to be different than any other book on the shelves today. In our debut issue, we meet Leo, who can plan the perfect heist...but only if he can be convinced the job is safe enough. See, Leo is not a shoot-first think-later guy; Leo is a professional. But to some criminals, even professionals, the right payout is worth almost any risk. So when an old friend and a crooked cop approach with a plan to seize millions of dollars in contraband from an evidence transport van, Leo must make tough choices, knowing there's nothing you can trust less in this world than a cop on the take. And as a bonus, each issue of Criminal will be packed with material, featuring a full length continuing story, as well as back-up stories and articles about the crime genre in all its forms from the pulps to the modern day. 32 PGS./No Ads/Mature Content Cover price $2.99.
