This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, your co-hosts dive into Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ Criminal: Coward.
The series’ story arcs are self-contained and focus on different characters, but these central characters inhabit the same world, grew up in fictional Center City, frequent the same bar, and share a common history of two generations of crime. With his partner Ivan, Tommy Patterson ran the city’s most proficient crew of pickpockets and taught the trade to his eight-year-old son, Leo. When Tommy was arrested and imprisoned for the murder of Teeg Lawless, Ivan took care of Leo and explained to him how following certain rules can keep a criminal “out in the world,” out of both prison and the morgue.
