Criminal: Eisner Award Winner 2007 - Best New Series

Criminal is an ongoing creator-owned crime comic book by writer Ed Brubaker with artist Sean Phillips published by Marvel Comics' Icon label. The series is a meditation on the clich├ęs of the crime genre while remaining realistic and believable. In some ways it's an attempt to recapture much of the mood and style of Sleeper while removing the usual superhero trappings found in most mainstream comics

In Criminal, the story arcs are self-contained and focus on different characters, but these central characters inhabit the same world, frequent the same bar, and share a common history of two generations of crime. With his partner Ivan, Tommy Patterson ran the city's most proficient crew of pickpockets and taught the trade to his eight-year-old son, Leo. When Tommy was arrested and imprisoned for the murder of Teeg Lawless, Ivan took care of Leo and explained to him how following certain rules can keep a criminal "out in the world," out of both prison and the morgue.

Around the same time, Teeg Lawless' two sons were arrested. While his fifteen-year-old brother Ricky was sent to a juvenile work camp, Tracy Lawless was given the option of going to prison or enlisting in the armed forces. Tracy joined the U.S. Army, abandoning Ricky but honing his skills as a soldier.

The Series has won the following Awards at the Eisner Awards 2007:

  • Best New Series
  • Best Writer: Ed Brubaker
