Brubaker & Phillips make a return to the scene of their earliest crime together with issue No. 5 of their new monthly Criminal series for Image Comics. The issue hits stores this week with the story called “The Night of the Hunter,” and we have an exclusive excerpt below. The Night of the Hunter kicks off the Criminal: Cruel Summer story arc, which will be the longest in the brand’s illustrious history, which dates back to October 2006.
Instead of chronicling a central, linear story, Criminal has more of a mosaic approach.
