From writer Creator/EdBrubaker and artist Sean Phillips (who also did ''{{ComicBook/Sleeper}}'' and ''{{Incognito}}''), ''Criminal'' is a deconstruction of the crime genre, through the lens of thieves and [[ConMan con-men]]. Each trade paperback is a separate story arc, which can be read on its own, but each is a part of the same universe and take place in the same city. The same background characters show up, with characters going to the same bar.

* GoryDiscretionShot: Teeg's VillainEpisode uses this to keep him from being painted as a CompleteMonster.
* GenerationXerox: A recurring theme, as the modern day characters attempt to avoid the roles of their criminal parents. The [[BadGuyBar local]] bar isn't called the [[YouCantFightFate Undertow]] for nothing.

* SympatheticPOV: Considering the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin series title]], it's unsurprising that most of its cast has [[DarkAndTroubledPast pasts blackened by crime and violence]], but most of them are portrayed as making [[IDidWhatIHadToDo hard choices]] in difficult situations. Amazingly, Teeg Lawless, Tracy and Ricky's violent, alcoholic thug of a father, is referred to as a CompleteMonster by everyone who knows him, but the story that focuses on him depicts him as a tragic figure, hopelessly out of control in his life and in constant pain without understanding why.

* ''Coward'': Five years after Leo Patterson survived the disastrous "Salt Bay Job," another criminal named Seymour and Jeff, a crooked cop, try to recruit him for a plan to [[TheCaper heist]] diamonds from a police evidence truck. A notable deconstruction of ASimplePlan, when not only don't things turn out the way Leo thought, but [[ItGotWorse they get worse]].
