FRIDAY comes on Thursday this week... 

The trade paperback of the first three chapters comes out very soon, but in the meantime, for those of you that have been following along, we just put out CHAPTER FOUR on panelsyndicate.com

This is my favorite chapter so far, as we really get to see Friday come into her own this time, for obvious reasons. 

For anyone that's missed it before, FRIDAY is available digitally only from Panel Syndicate, and you can pay whatever you want for the chapters, even nothing. So go check it out, please. Here's a few preview pages to the new chapter (warning: SPOILERS if you haven't read the first three chapters)... 

As I said we have the trade paperback coming out very soon, although I haven't gotten my copies yet, I'm told it looks amazing and will be the bestselling book of the year, so take that for whatever its worth. 



This project is a total labor of love for me and Marcos and Muntsa, and is easily the weirdest thing I've ever written. And I think writing it freed up some part of my mind and let to the Reckless books that me and Sean are doing. Suddenly I felt like writing about the good guys for a change. As long as the good guys are complex and fucked up. 

So that's the pitch. Go check it out. You can get Friday in either ipad/kindle format, or widescreen style to read on a desktop screen. Your choice, and you choose what to pay. 
What Else? What Else? 
I've spend the last several weeks doing interviews and trying to get news out about the Reckless books, since the third one just dropped last week. Thus, I've been doing a lot of podcasts and interviews. 

Here I am on a recent episode of HOW DID THIS GET MADE?

And here I am on Paul Scheer's other podcast UNSPOOLED, talking about the books, as well as some of my favorite movies, and more importantly, my insane (but correct) theory on what INCEPTION is really about. 

And here I am on Word Balloon, talking about all sorts of stuff... 



Here's a feature about the books and me from the Hollywood Reporter... 

And here's a recent interview from CBR that I did... 

And there should be a few more things coming, if you're not sick of me yet. 

Still waiting for the announcements on my two recent Hollywood things, one of which is a TV thing that I start working on next week, actually. But I think that one should announce soon and I expect people to shit their pants and blow their minds at the same time. 

Okay, that's enough about me, let's move on to some... 
 
CRIME NEWS
First up, a case that I feel like I've spent most of my life waiting for a solution to... and I guess I'm still waiting. 



Next we have one that I'm not sure is crime, but fascinated me anyway, as a longtime fan of Ricky Jay. 



This one leapt out at me for the bluntness of its headline... 



And finally, this one was interesting because clearly its organized as hell... 




All right, that's all I've got this time out... 

Please send any emails or questions for future newsletters to: criminalcomic@gmail.com and I'll be back soon. 

And remember to go check out the new FRIDAY...
