Criminal: The Last of the Innocent
And what they do in this particular story is telling a really fucked up version of Archie, really. If you're familiar with that gang you'll see how each of those characters translates to the characters here and it's really quite well done - even down to the imitation art work used to show the flashbacks.
I absolutely love this series and I hope that Brubaker has many many more of these in store. I know that someone is currently adapting the first trade of Criminal into a film, but I'd love to see the whole world done up properly.
If you're a fan of noir, crime fiction, or just solid writing in general, do yourself a favour and read this series.
