    Havent read any brubaker since catwoman and gangland but fancied a crime comic. This was right at end of this months pull list - kept flicking through thinking urghh so many panels so much text and putting it off. How foolish i was - great stuff. The most minor of quibbles might be that there was no splash page to let artist really let loose and break up the long flow of pages but that's really reaching to find something to say other than top work.

    Marvel or dc - oversized first issue - 5, 6, 7 dollars please. This 4 dollars please. And intro to previous trades was very helpful although as a new reader i found i could jump straight in no problem.

    Latest issue was solid. The comic artist character seemed to be a mash up of Alex Toth and Gil Kane with bits of Frazetta (?) thrown in perhaps.

    Seems like this issue is a "Jacob" that we already know, no?

    Seemed that way, to me.

    That said, he seems surprisingly stable in this story.

    For the folks who are fans of the book, the "From The Desk Of Ed Brubaker" e-mail newsletter has become a pretty interesting window into the title.

    Might be worth looking into if you are not already on board.

    Thanks, I will look into it.
    I just got "My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies" on Comixology for $7 on sale. Looking forward to reading it. (all my other Criminal books are printed)
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Unless I am recalling it wrong, Brubaker said that the central character is from Criminal but won't say which Criminal character it is.

    It's a pseudo-sequel to one of the volumes. You'll figure it out halfway through.

    Yes, but even if you haven't read any of the Criminal books, it won't matter. "Junkies" is a great book all on its own.

    Today's issue was a pretty interesting entry into the serie's "Bigger Picture". Right up there with some of my favorite work so far.
