Brubaker and Phillips’ Criminal Heads to Image in January

In January, writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips signed a five year deal with Image Comics to not just release new comics, like their recent hit The Fade Out, but they’d also be bringing some of their back catalog along with them.

In the second issue of The Fade Out, which was released this week, Brubaker announced their plans for their multi-volume noir series Criminal.

Here’s what he had to say:


Criminal had previously been released by Marvel’s creator-owned imprint Icon, with a run from 2007 to 2011.

Yay, looks like we’ll be getting even more Criminal news soon! Hopefully it’ll be a new volume or two.
