I hope Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips never end their collaborative team-ups, as they make a wonderful team that cranks our fantastic stories. I think we’re going to see the duo together for a while as Image Comics has announced Criminal returns as a monthly series.

Criminal

In a press release from Image Comics, Brubaker said, “CRIMINAL was where Sean and I really established our brand as a team, and while writing MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES (which takes place in the CRIMINAL world), it just suddenly felt like the perfect time to bring it back to the monthly comic shelves. But this time I wanted it to be different—not just serialized graphic novels, but also single-issue stories and even the odd two-issue story sometimes. I love the elasticity that CRIMINAL allows me—because this world we’ve created gives me a place to tell any kind of crime story and to focus on different characters, both old and new—and I want to really embrace the monthly comics format, and try to create a series where readers will never know what’s coming next from issue to issue.”

CRIMINAL #1 features the return of Teeg Lawless, whose teenage son is causing him trouble that he may not be able to fight his way out of, for the first time in his violence-fueled life.

Criminal #1 will be a double-sized issue and is scheduled to arrive on January 9th, 2018.
