JSA #17
Guardians of the Galaxy #3
Invincible Iron Man #3
Nova #15
Secret Invasion #4

I have a question for those of you who get Criminal via trade, why? It's actually one of the few comics, the other one I can think of off hand being Casanova, that getting the singles gives you a huge incentive over purchasing the trades. The back matter, particularly the essays, are always fantastic.

Just curious.

Um.... because I didn't know about any "back matter". ?
Now you've ruined everything.

Ah. Well. Yeah, guests write essays about their favorite noir films, and they range from Patton Oswalt to the Seattle Times Film critic to one of the VP's at Sony. Plus there's a page written by Brubaker that acts kind of like a smaller version of Fraction's 'liner notes' from Casanova.

Don't feel too bad, it's not like Criminal sucks or something.

Guys, you need to be buying Dead, She Said. Berni Wrightson is doing art for this crime/horror book. Great fun, beautifully disturbing illustrations.

It's about a guy who's dead, but still conscious, and has to solve his own murder before his corpse rots too much for him to move.

Check it out!
