* ''The Last of the Innocent'': A {{Deconstruction}} of ''ArchieComics'' ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' that follows former all-American teenager Riley Richards as he returns to his old hometown Brookview upon a family emergency and finds his memories of his carefree youth impacting on life with murderous consequences.



* BettyAndVeronica: Deconstructed in "The Last of the Innocent", and in particular deconstructing the TropeNamer; Riley Richards, a clear analogue of [[ArchieComics Archie]], after years of unhappy marriage to the shallow, manipulative and adulterous "Veronica", realises he really should have stayed with the "Betty" instead. His solution to the problem... gets ugly.

** Most of the characters in "The Last of the Innocent" are grown-up versions of characters from ArchieComics transplanted into a noir setting and subjected to a process of {{deconstruction}}. A private detective also appears who is a grown-up version of Encyclopedia Brown. There's also a businessman who appears to be a grown-up version of Richie Rich.

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.
