    For sure. I've read the full series a couple of times over the years and I should do so again. I'm kind of at the point where I'd like to re-read various things (eg all Moebius, the first six Cerberus volumes, the list goes on) rather than constantly buy new stuff. It's just finding the time. I've actually taken to getting up at 6:30 am and reading for an hour or so.

    Brubaker must maintain some kind of a timeline to keep all this stuff straight.

    New issue was great! I like the overlapping Rashomon effect we're getting to certain scenes. I always enjoy little things like that.

    I'm curious to check out the Bad Weekend HC, but I'll most like wait a bit on that.

    Anyone pick up the Bad Weekend HC? Worth the double dip?

    I kind of assume it’s aimed more at the bookstore crowd based on how Junkies did. Doesn’t sound like anything essential was added.

    Depends what you're into collecting wise I guess, I did pick it up. The difference in material is 8 brand new pages. As well there are 2 existing pages where the entire monologue has been changed and 1 other existing page has 2 dialog boxes added into a panel in the HC. The HC is great, the paper gives a somewhat different feel to the book. I find the HC to be a little muted colorwise but not in a bad way. The original comics look very bright and crisp in comparison. Both formats have appealing factors. The HC does not include the cover art for Criminal issues #2-3.

    Also, did anyone else notice that the preview in January's Criminal #1 for issue #2 seems to have Hal with a mustache and was removed then for the actual #2 printing and story?

    Well spotted! We decided the moustache wasn't right for Hal.

    I'm curious if the creative team has plans for the characters in the present day of the Criminal-verse? after their initial stories?

    I just read the latest book! SO good, I planned on going through the first few pages but I had to finish the whole thing.

    Finally made it out to the shop last week. This arc really is amazing.

    On the "Annotations" front, the first page would seem to be a nod to this Tim Buckley song...
