Criminal is Marvel/Icon, therefore creator owned. They been doing it for a while, with e.g. Powers and Kabuki.
So it isn't surprising at all that ADD can get behind it.

I know it's creator owned ... still, it's the hegemonic House Of Ideas, no?

Only as a shorthand. If Marvel produced a whole lot of Icon books, if these were good, and promoted properly by the parent company everyone would sing their praises. That it's restricted to good team players within Marvel and that people like Bendis hailed Powers moving to Icon as major step forward for creator-ownership when in fact it was a blow to Image, the real promoters of creator ownership cast a shadow on the icon line.
Still, at the end of the day the important thing is that Brubaker is doing his own thing here instead of e.g. retooling Daughters of the Dragon to do a crime series.

Uh... why is ADD pimping a Marvel book a shock? He's often spoken of his Mark Millar love.

Perhaps you're right, markus, but I really doubt that's the case. There are still in the Bit Two Monopoly, and still crowding out indy books from the racks of the Direct Market. There's a great amount of the discussion that's aimed at publisher, not contect, and would never support marvel in any fashion, creator-owned or not.

It really wasn't meant as some sort of slam at ADD, Dan. He's conciously cultivated an indie-first image, however. So for him to get on board with anything associated with Marvel just struck me as worth noting.
