Crime comics: CRIMINAL

In comics stores today, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips reunite for the new crime comic Criminal (Icon). To mark the debut, Comic Book Resources offers interviews with Brubaker (writer) and Phillips (artist) .

On his site, Brubaker (Captain America, Daredevil) says Criminal will tread the line between comics like Fell and Sin City and TV series like The Sopranos, Thief and The Shield. "I wanted to write a book that explored the clich├ęs of the crime genre and turned them inside out. I wanted to have characters totally unlike the ones you're used to seeing in crime stories."
