Review: The Last Days Of American Crime

With one week until the end of all crime in the United States, can the last heist in American history be pulled off? In the not-too-distant future as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards. Enter: Graham Brick. A career criminal never quite able to hit the big score, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country, and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live, and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the crime of the century into the last crime in American history.
Written by The Punisher’s Rick Remender this 3 part series tracks back and forth over a gangs last heist before there can be no crime in the USA.
That’s it, that’s all you need to know. That was the premise that drew me to the book and I’m glad I got it.
The story is well crafted with no loose end left by the end. It has some well rounded characters and shows their histories and motivations well. Throughout the book you get glimpses of the characters outside the main thread, which all come together at the end. To do that over three issues and to make it feel like more is a work of art.
Greg Tocchini’s art work really well here, from the sex, to the violence and talking heads, you get a good feel for how the characters are feeling at the time.
Also, I love the 1st issues front cover!
Along with our main protagonist and supporting cast, you get a feel for the  underground in this America. The story is interspersed with news about the switch on of the anti crime signal, but this doesn’t interfere with the story.
What I would like to see is more of this from Rick Remender and co, Radical have an excellent title here and I am glad to spread the word!
