    Default Brubaker's new book -- CRIMINAL

    It's been a few weeks since the Criminal announcement went public, and a few days since the October solicit for issue 1 hit, and I'm still finding tons of people who haven't seen the 5 page teaser Sean and I specially crafted to sell readers and retailers on this book, even though it was widely broadcast on newsarama and other places. So, I'm taking it to the people!

    If you haven't seen the teaser for Criminal, go download it at this link: http://www.edbrubaker.com/criminal/

    And then, email it to everyone you know who likes good comics, and post the link on every message board you can find. ;)

    And, if you're a true friend, print out a copy and bring it in to your local store to show your comics retailer, too. I'm going out big to retailers in the next few weeks, but having customers come in with the preview for them will make a HUGE difference. It's a tough market right now for anything outside superheroes, and while I think we'll do okay, better safe than sorry.

    Anyone who does either of these things, though, please email me at edbrubaker@gmail.com and let me know, and I'll see that you get something cool for helping us out.

    Looks great Ed.

    I'll see what I can do as far as printing the stuff out too.

    Is this an Icon book?

    Yep. Fully creator-owned.

    Icon's perfectly on-topic here.

    I loved SLEEPER, so I'm really looking forward to CRIMINAL.

    Ed, you have no idea how badly I've wanted you to return to doing mateiral like this. Consider me sold as well. Cannot wait to read this.

    If Criminal is anything like Sleeper, then it'll be a great story. And being creator-owned, I hope that Ed Brubaker has a lot of creative freedom on this title. This is what Icon was made for!!

    And I'm jazzed it's an ongoing, and not a mini-series. I hope it has a long life. Marvel needs more diversity like this.

    Looks good. I'll check it out for sure, hit a couple of places with it . Any literary influences in the genre, Ed?
