CRIMINAL #4

By Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips

A woman in trouble, friends on the run from cops and mobsters, and a secret no one is prepared to face!

All this and more await readers in the beginning of a hard-hitting new noir tale "Bad Night" Part 1 of 4, as CRIMINAL's new expanded format keeps the hits coming!

Five years ago, Jake was a happy family man, long-retired from the life of crime he grew up in, and then the police made him the prime suspect in a horrible crime and ripped his life apart. Now, years later, Jake is less than a shadow of his former self, a hopeless insomniac who walks the city streets at night. But one night, he walks into the wrong place at the right time, and his whole life changes again… For the better or the worse, is the question.

And on top of this longer-than-usual length main story, CRIMINAL now features an expanded back-pages section, as well – with articles by Brubaker and other top crime writers, from novelists to screenwriters to comic writers. These noir articles have become a popular piece of the CRIMINAL package, and are something that can only be found in the comics, not in any collections.

So don't miss out on the start of a new story arc in the most acclaimed crime comic on the stands!

Penciled by JOHN ROMITA JR.

Cover by JOHN ROMITA JR.

An intriguing plot and amazing visuals…one of the most entertaining and exciting Marvel titles I've had the pleasure to read in a long while. - Kelvin Green, SilverBulletComicBooks.com

More than thirty-five years ago, comics legend Jack The King Kirby returned to the House of Ideas with perhaps his biggest idea of all: the universe of the Eternals! Their creation was the result of Kirby's ceaseless curiosity about the origin of man and his mythologies - but like many of the King's concepts, it was definitely ahead of its time. Flash forward to 2006: Superstar creators Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr. have boldly taken on these concepts with a loving hand, in the process telling a fresh and crackling fun yarn full of mystery, suspense and majestic power - all with an eye on helping establish Kirby's creations as a vital part of the Marvel Universe once and for all. Against the backdrop of Marvel's CIVIL WAR, the Eternals are being awoken one by one from a strange, waking dream, at once coming to terms with the fact that they are far more than the normal people they have thought themselves to be. They find there is little time to commiserate about such things, however, as they are thrust into a life and death struggle that spans both time and space! Collecting ETERNALS #1-7.

The last time we saw Simon Garth, the bank teller single-handedly stopped a gang of murderous robbers and got shot, bitten by zombies and med-evac-ed straight into Army custody for scientific experimentation as death and the necrotic infection overtook him fast. No problem, right? Find out how Simon got out of THAT one - assuming he did - and check out his further adventures battling the undead - unless, that is, he's one of them now - in a brutal, gory, disgusting…awesome re-imagining of one of Marvel's strangest horror heroes, that could only be dreamed up by artist/co-writer Kyle Hotz (ZOMBIE) and Eric Powell (The Goon)! Collecting THE ZOMBIE: SIMON GARTH #1-4.

Meet Mr. Terror - he's dapper, he's charming, he owns and operates his own VERY successful business…and, oh yeah, he's fifteen and a half centuries old and rotting fast. Doomed to decompose for all eternity, Terror forever replaces his festering limbs with fresh parts. The curse keeps him alive, but it's what's left of his twelfth-century sweetheart - encased in enchanted metal and serving as his right arm - that keeps him honest. Today, Terror runs a high-stakes private eye firm - espionage, investigations and assassinations for the extremely rich and extremely powerful. But after eliminating who he was told was a very bad guy, with extreme prejudice and in his own inimitable idiom, Terror learns he's been had - he's just murdered a major government intelligence chief. Now, with the feds on his rancid tail and whoever set him up looking to tie their loose ends, Terror's on the run to clear his name and bring down the real bad guys. But the killers know exactly who they're dealing with, and they aren't making it easy for him… Don't miss this 5-issue series of blood, guts, sex and salvation written by David Lapham (Stray Bullets) with jaw-dropping art by Patrick Zircher (CABLE & DEADPOOL). Collecting TERROR, INC. #1-5.
