I didn't say I wasn't buying it, just that I wasn't going to read it.

Not good enough to stop your name turning red.

I swear, it seems like you don't even like comics sometimes.

I can quote the guidelines to you, or you can just shut the fuck up right now.

Just saying that it's not a satisfactory explanation, you'll need to make sure you review next week is all.

No thanks.

If you insult me again I'll report you, calm the heck down. It's a reasonable question to ask, why you won't be reviewing a book you say you've bought, but whatever.

Criminal: The Last of the Innocent #4 actually turns the usual crime story convention on its head by giving Riley something of a happy ending. His big murder plot goes off without a hitch, he gets a ton of money, he gets the girl of his dreams, he's happy. So what could go wrong?

This issue is kind of a strange duck in that it works as a great ending to what was a superlative story (I'd say the best Criminal story yet), but as an issue unto itself, there isn't a whole lot to get into. Thought the story sees itself through to its conclusion, the plot is already pretty much done with. Riley has a few bits of business to take care of, but even with the suspicious private eye on his tail, he isn't in any real danger. Any problems he does have he's able to easily dispatch. So...the end?

Overall, a fine issue, but it doesn't work as well without the previous three.

7/10
