Been buying the singles, but this is great.
So because this is coward a criminal story, does that mean there will be other criminal stories as well?

All the Criminal trades will have their own title like Coward does, with the Criminal Edition strapline.

Gorgeous. Simple design, moody colors, and a great mix of the interior line work for the comic and the "rainy" artwork for the covers for the individual issues.

Again, gorgeous.

I'll definitely be getting a copy, but I was wondering: will there be any content that's new to the trade?

Sean Phillips said...

As Ed and I have been saying since we started, all the extras are in the monthly issues. The trades will only contain the story with a new cover. No extras or original monthly covers will be included.

Bubba said...

Just wondering. That does make me quite glad I'm collecting the single issues, but I can already tell that the trade collections will be one of those things that has a permanent place of honor on my bookshelf, alongside Batman Black & White, Gotham Central, & Sleeper.

And if you ever come to the states for conventions, let us know. :)

Great work, Sean. I am collecting the singles and waiting to read them all together. The first one was really good. Your art is great!

Hope to see you at Bristol Expo if I can be there.
