Man watches funeral from a distance

Criminal: The Sinners, Part 2 by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips

More crime action! Working for some bad ass crime lord guy, Tracy Lawless is investigating some apparently random assassinations of various dodgers working for a variety of gangs. He gets to punch the shite out of some guys who think they're tougher than he is, but, oh dear, his past is closing in on him and his boss might be leaping to wrong conclusions. Then we cut off to the people doing the killing, and we get a sense of the terrible darkness that has brought them to this pass. This is proving to be a valuable addition to the Brubaker-Phillips oeuvre.
