We gave it a B+

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ Criminal: Coward follows a loner pickpocket, who’s not living up to his felonious potential, and is drafted by a veteran crook and a shifty cop to orchestrate an ill-fated heist.

For Fans of…
Michael Mann’s Heat.

Does It Deliver?
With an assist from Phillips’ noir-kissed art, Brubaker (better known as the man who revived, then killed, Captain America) proves a wordsmith of rare restraint, fine-tuning a well-worn genre.
