Big Man, Chinese Lanterns
Criminal: The Sinners #4, by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips
Lawless escapes from the MP trying to bring him back to the military, but not without taking a cap in the shoulder. It's only a flesh wound, no problem. What is a problem is that the guy his boss (sinister crime lord Sebastian Hyde) has trailing him sees who he gets to come help him out. Hyde had suspected that Lawless was getting it on with his daughter, but the tail was rather disturbed to see Mrs Hyde come to Lawless's aid. While Hyde's flunkies wonder how they will break the news to the big man, Lawless blithely continues with his investigation into who is taking down criminal figures across the city, only to find himself in yet another wrong place at the wrong time – and now marked for death by the Chinese mob. Oh dear.
