Some of My Friends Read Comics 129 – Criminal: Bad Weekend + Marvel vs DC #2

There aren’t main writer/artist pairs in comics who work together as consistently as Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips, and yet we’ve never covered their work!

We finally rectify that by reading a spin-off of their long standing Criminal series called Bad Weekend, in which we learn about all kinds of shady practices behind the scenes of the comic book industry.

And then we keep diving deeper into Marvel vs DC with issue #2.

We checked out the first six issues and then continued our read of Marvels: Eye of the Camera with issue #2.
