"No Such Thing" As tales of the Citrusville bog-monster continue to spread, two college-aged documentary filmmakers arrive in the swamps, accompanied by their nubile girlfriends, determined to sort fact from fiction. But, unfortunately for them, the two filmmakers are unaware that the Man-Thing isn't the only monster in the swamps -- that there is, in fact, a tribe of cannibalistic half-breeds who would love nothing more than to hunt and eat a van-load of fresh meat. The MAX re-telling of Man-Thing's origin continues this issue, narrated by Digger, and featuring the return of...Ellen Brandt?

CRIMINAL 2 #3

Written by Ed Brubaker, pencils and cover by Sean Phillips.

It's the final of three interlinking standalone stories, in Criminal's new expanded format! "Female of the Species" is the final piece to the noir puzzle of these three stories of crime and murder in the early 1970s. Told from the sympathetic POV of a Femme Fatale on her path to one final score and the revenge she¹s been waiting years to get. A heartbreaking look into the other side of a noir tradition. 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.
