Comic-Con Put Me in a Dark Place

So I attended Comic-Con this past weekend. I saw the most overweight cosplay enthusiast dressed as Joker I’m likely to find. I felt bludgeoned by video game marketing. Saw some breasts. It was a roller-coaster, but in the final summation: there are worse ways to spend a weekend. So why did I leave in such a dark mood? Because I picked up Ed Brubaker’s Criminal trades.

It takes a lot to get me to read crime books or noir stories. Like a gun pressed to the side of my head. 99% of the time I’d prefer to read the packaging copy on deodorant. But Brubaker didn’t do me wrong with his Daredevil work and I needed something grounded in reality after being inundated by stormtroopers for two days.

My review: Shit was good. Really good. Pick it up. Here’s an auction for all four trades at a (currently) bargain basement price. Grab it.

    I’m a big fan of this book. His car forces me to suspend a LOT of belief though.
