criminal02-1306424972

With last week's release of L.A. Noire -- the latest blockbuster video game from Grand Theft Auto creators Rockstar Games -- there's been a sudden spike in interest in hard-boiled crime stories. Stand-up tough-guys dealing with corruption and vice, faithless lovers plotting murderous betrayals, and twisted secrets dragged into the light? Who wouldn't want to see more of that stuff?

When Bad Guys Go Good: The Reformed Supervillain in Comics

Redemption is a tricky thing. How do people really atone for their transgressions? If it's really an eye for an eye, how could someone possibly make up for murder?
