    While I haven't actually been paying super close attention to how the twelve issues will wind up being collected, there isn't anything particularly special about issue number four.

    It's a story that wraps up in just that issue. I had always assumed it would wind up in the "Cruel Summer" trade.

    I guess they ignored it because it's a one-shot story then. It would be weird if they don't release a hardcover with all the issues and extras

    I thought they would include issue 4 as an epilogue for "Cruel Summer". Granted that issue worked more setting up the "Coward" and "Lawless" arcs than "Cruel Summer".

    I'm just hoping they collect all the recent Criminal material for the next deluxe hardcover: Criminal 1-12, My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, Special Edition, and 10th Anniversary Special.

    It would make sense. In the end My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies is no different to other Criminal stories.

    No discussion of the last issue with the surprising (at least to me) revelatory ending?

    I wonder if Bru had this in mind since the first GNs. And boy does it explain why Ricky was effed up. (If I remember "Lawless" correctly)
    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!

    I think he said he had a timeline planned out. So maybe he knew the who and the when but not the why?

    You feel really sorry for Tommy and it adds a new layer to Coward.

    Hell i felt sorry for Teeg and Jane at the end.

    And considering what sociopaths they were that was tricky to pull off.

    I guess in a book named Criminal, everybody is the hero/villain of their own story.

    One reader's take...

    The conversation in jail between Tracy and Tommy feels really specific for a scenario where they didn't really have it almost all the way down.

    As for Teeg, he has always been right on the outskirts of a character that you could sympathize with(at least to me...)

    I figure they knew Leo killed Teeg but not sure why. Its not that immersion breaking to me.

    Honestly i wanted a story with Jen. A daughter of thieves who grew up to be a cop/internal affairs is interesting.

    Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips just released the new cover for the second Deluxe edition and it looks beautiful.

    That's excellent news!
    Is Criminal volume 1 being rereleased as well?

    And do we have dates for any of these?
