    1. Tracy Lawless is the main character for this one. I think it's his return to the series but I've read them out of order and I'm easily confused. It doesn't matter with these books though because they each can be read individually. (Yay! that helps old broads with shit for brains)Lawless is ex-military and he takes a job because he owes for his brother. Tracy Lawless has some shit luck. He ends up with his boss pissed off (accusing him of sleeping with his daughter-dude he is sleeping with the wi [...]

    2. We return in volume five to Tracy Lawless, Iraqi vet who had gone to Iraq to escape the criminal life in which his father had early trained him to succeed. He left his brother Ricky behind, unable to escape it; when Ricky was found let dead in an alley, Tracy went AWOL from Iraq to discover his brother’s killer. Tracy finds that Sebastian Hyde is going to make him repay some old debts by having him work back in the life he had tried to escape, the dirty details of which get “shared” (smear [...]

    3. Volume 2 was one of my favorite storylines in Criminal Guess what? Lawless was the reason. Guess who's back? LAWLESS MOFOS! Hell yeah. So this storyline picks up where people, ones who aren't supposed to, are getting picked off one by one. I mean shot in the back of the head, tricked and beaten to death, just some horrible ass deaths. However, it's against people who deserve it. Do we have a little bit of a hero on the streets? Lawless is sent to find out what the fuck is happening. When you div [...]

    4. Ed Brubaker’s hard boiled series has quickly earned my complete respect. There’s a lot of authors out there trying to write old school crime fiction these days, but I can’t think of anyone writing novels who is coming up with gritty stories as good as these comics.Tracy Lawless returns as the main character for this one. Previously, he’d deserted the army to seek revenge for the death of his brother but circumstances have forced him into working as a thug for crime boss Sebastian Hyde. W [...]

    5. This next installment of Criminal picks up once again following Tracy Lawless, the brooding AWOL soldier that showed up in Center City with vengeance on his mind back in Volume 2, Lawless, and got himself in a bit of trouble. He's still in trouble in this one, stuck under the thumb of the city's biggest crime lord. The story is a bit less personal here for Tracy, but just as dark and grimy, and with great writing, exactly the way I like it and with everything I've come to expect in the Criminal [...]

    6. Forced into paying off his dead brother’s debts, Tracy Lawless has been employed as a hitman for powerful crime boss, Sebastian Hyde. For the past year, Tracy has been knocking off slimy folks deemed expendable by his maniacal master. However, there’s been some issues with Tracy’s efficiency. Regardless of his orders, Tracy has to make sure that his target is truly deserving of death, which as you can imagine, does not lend itself to an employer with little to no patience.The only thing ke [...]

    7. Ed Brubaker can really craft a good crime noir tale. The Sinners is an excellent example of this craft. Tracy Lawless, on the run from the military after going AWOL, is trying to solve a mysterious set of assassins who are selectively taking out mob members. People are starting to suspect Tracy of the hits. Tracy also has a relationship with the wife of his boss. None of this turns out well, but it does turn into a really good volume of crime fiction.The characters are believable and the story i [...]

    8. Detective stories, given that they are effectively written leave you always at the edge of your seat, silently helping the protagonist in figuring out the answer to the puzzle as stakes become higher and higher. Sinmers does that. It is an effective piece of sleuthing escapades coupled with an increasing pile of dead bodies.This volume of Criminals is surprisingly unpredictable, given that the previous one are. The reveal (which by the way was revealed to the reader way before our man Tracy Lawl [...]

    9. Tracy Lawless returns for this fifth volume in the critically acclaimed series "Criminal", to find he's lost the nerve for killing he once had and that he's investigating a slew of gangland killings by an untraceable killer. He's also gotten involved with his boss's wife and a military officer is out to bring him back to the Army. Ed Brubaker pens another fantastic crime comic book filled with mystery, double-crossing, and murders galore. The book is a joy to read as the perspectives shift from [...]

    10. Tracy Lawless from volume 2 returns. He's now under the thumb of Mr. Hyde just like his father and is looking to pay off his debt. Hyde has ordered him to find out who is behind the murders of several large criminals in town. They've all been gotten to within their strongholds with no evidence left at the scene. Lawless is no detective and goes through the same m.o. of a lot of traditional gumshoes. Stir up a bunch of shit and see what pans out. To add fuel to the fire, the military police have [...]

    11. More hardboiled goodness from Brubaker. This time, he actually reuses a character from a previous book as a protagonist. Last seen in Criminal, Vol. 2: Lawless, Tracy Lawless is now working as a reluctant hitman for Sebastian Hyde, trying to pay off his dead brother's debt. Tracy has been told to figure out who is behind a series of hits on some of Hyde's associates, professionally and quietly done without witnesses. But he has more than that to worry about: there's a military inspector on his t [...]

    12. Maybe not exactly worthy of five stars, but Sinners stands head and shoulders about the other volumes of Brubaker & Phillips's Criminal series in my reading thus far (I have yet to read Bad Night). Sinners takes the Lester Dent pulp fiction formula, pours kerosine and gunpowder on it and then tosses it off a cliff. The Lester Dent formula basically involves heaping trouble after trouble onto the hero, never letting him get the upper hand until the very end, and Sinners's hero, Tracy Lawless, [...]

    13. I feel like this series lost something special about it after volume 2. Not saying that this particular volume is bad, it's just that no following book was as great as 1 and 2. Story is still strong, characters are as well-written as before, but something is not right, and I can't exactly articulate what is. Also, I felt a bit lost at certain points, like I missed some important plot points earlier, even though I don't think I did.Still, only one volume to go, and I hope it will fully redeem the [...]

    14. This installment makes me think if Lee Child ever wants someone to adapt his Reacher novels, Brubaker and Phillips could make them even more interesting. Highly recommended.

    15. Tracy Lawless from Volume 2 is back to settle debts with Sebastian Hyde. This one is a bit longer and and the pacing is less frenetic that the first four in the series, but the plotting is more detailed and the violence is amped up considerably. Great stuff.

    16. A direct followup to Volume 2 (Lawless), the story takes the hero Lawless and ties him up into an even uglier situation than the previous, as he tries to solve a series of murders of 'untouchables.' Lawless isn't much of a detective, and events manage to take several turns for the worse in almost absurdly bad situations, but all of it carries the noir overtones the series is known for. There's an undertone of discontent and despair at escaping a bad situation. The story takes a couple of coincid [...]

    17. Tracy Lawless comes back for this volume - so far the only character to have 2 POV chapters. And it's and interesting story, that's for sure. Made men are getting executed all over town, and Tracy's boss asks him to find out who's responsible. The answer was surprising to say the least.

    18. Not my favorite out of the Criminals so far. This story didn't grab my attention as the other have done. I still like that all these have different themes though. This one play with the idea of religion and crime. I'm really interested to see the next one and finish up this series.

    19. We return in volume five to Tracy Lawless, Iraqi vet who had gone to Iraq to escape the criminal life in which his father had early trained him to succeed. He left his brother Ricky behind, unable to escape it; when Ricky was found let dead in an alley, Tracy went AWOL from Iraq to discover his brother’s killer. Tracy finds that Sebastian Hyde is going to make him repay some old debts by having him work back in the life he had tried to escape, the dirty details of which get “shared” (smear [...]

    20. Ed Brubaker is a BADASS. He takes the vision of Frank Miller's Sin City and turns it into seedy town USA. From this underbelly he has created his Criminal series and Volume 5, The Sinners carries on the series to bloody and disturbing heights. This is noire. Dark, gritty, and sweaty. You will want to wash your hands when you are done with this graphic novel, to scrub the nail from beneath your nails and the drying copper smelling blood from your hands. But like Lady MacBeth, it won't come clean. [...]

    21. The best character of the whole 'Criminal' world/series returns! Tracy Lawless is back, and if you love this series, that's the best thing that could happen to you. This is the darkest entry in many ways, the depths of despair and having almost no way out. Lawless is stuck and the way out will surprise you! He's got a target on his back, but still finds time to make things worse for himself. Though things are not looking good for him, he's not going down without a fight, and people will find out [...]

    22. Noir isn't a genre. It's a tone you set with your language. And Brubaker, although a fault-ridden superhero comics writer, is the Nabokov of graphic noir. When Sean Phillips and Ed Brubaker pair together, it's never anything short of extraordinary. These Criminal books are all contrast in stark black and white. There isn't anything muddied or grey. There aren't moral ambiguities in the writing or the art. There are just hard, solid lines running through both. Urban Fantasy and Steampunk may be t [...]

    23. Note qui tend vers le 5, mais il manque la touche qui en fait quelque chose d'exceptionnel. Dans la veine des tomes précédents de Criminal, surfant toujours sur les classiques du polar noir. L'intrigue principale apporte sa petite touche d'originalité en y mêlant des sujets d'actualité. La narration est un sans faute et le dessin est impeccable.

    24. Very dark, gritty, Noir like story. Ed Brubaker Phillips never tell a bad story. This included. If You're looking for a comic without superheroes, this might be worth checking out.I recieved an advenced copy of this from Netgalley and the publisher.

    25. I would like to venture advice to all my fellow readers. It is difficult to concentrate on or enjoy reading while the department of transportation spends 96 hrs. straight tearing up the freeway adjacent to your dwelling.

    26. Dopo un volume interlocutorio e uno non riuscitissimo, Brubaker torna a sfornare una storia appassionante, intricata il giusto e con una serie di personaggi interessanti.I disegni di Sean Phillips, nel bene e nel male, sono sempre gli stessi, con lo stesso layout di tavola, gli stessi giochi di ombre, le stesse palette di colori. Se vi piace, volete sempre more of the same, quando Brubaker non è in forma (come nei volumi 3 e 4 o come nel non riuscitissimo "Fatale"), come è poco interessante la [...]

    27. Another aeesome installment in an already awesome series! The Sinners follow Tracy Lawless in his swan song for The City and Sebastian Hyde. Made men are turning up dead all aroynd town and Tracy has been assigned tp figure out by who. Like others and previous pieces of work from the Brubaker, Phillips team, this vplume delivers on both art and story and makes me sad to think I may live in a world where these two guys stop working together. 5 stars!

    28. With this volume, Brubaker and Phillips sluice some of the offal and misfits from the Criminal world. It's not pretty. It's not noble and it surely is not a refreshing burst. It is darkly mesmerizing.
