More Teeg Lawless: The Dead and the Dying TPB in Stores Today!

We're still processing our thoughts on the Criminal Special Edition, which we could NOT recommend more highly, and which we're giving to friends as the best single-issue introduction to the world of Brubaker and Phillips -- and, last time, we failed to note the largely overlooked news from's recent interview with Brubaker, that Image Comics is reprinting Incognito later this year.

In the meantime, we would be remiss not to note that today sees Image re-release the third trade paperback of Criminal, "The Dead and The Dying."  The volume collects a triptych of extra-long single-issue stories that stand alone but interconnect in an ouroboros of violence and betrayal.

The story gives us the first close-up look at Teeg Lawless, a central character in the larger world of Criminal, and its intricate structure hinted at even greater experimentation to come.

Last week's release of Image's June solicitations included the fifth volume of the series, "The Sinners," so presumably all six volumes will be out by July or August.
