Written by ED BRUBAKER Drawn by SEAN PHILLIPS That's right, the most acclaimed crime comic in the industry is giving readers and retailers a second chance to get onboard as we relaunch with a new format, featuring more pages, longer main stories, and an expanded magazine section! 'Second Chance in Hell' begins the first of three standalone issues, this one focusing on Gnarly the bartender and telling the story of the last days of his life as a boxer and revealing how the Undertow bar came into his hands. It's a hard-hitting period piece, set in the grimy early 70s, where crime, seduction, and betrayal go hand-in-hand. And on top of this longer-than-usual length main story, CRIMINAL now features an expanded back pages section as well - with articles by Brubaker and other top crime writers, from novelists to screenwriters to comic writers. These noir articles have become a popular piece of the CRIMINAL package, and are something that can only be found in the comics, not in any collections. So please take this SECOND CHANCE IN HELL to find out what everyone's been talking about!
