CrimComics offers a new way to approach criminological theory by engaging students with impactful, highly visual illustrated texts. Each CrimComics Issue traces the development of the theory--placing it in social and political context--and demonstrates its application to the real world. The last page of each Issue features review questions and key terms.

Issue 1, Origins of Criminology, introduces students to the two major schools of criminological thought: the Classical School and the Positivist School. This issue discusses the concepts developed by the major proponents of these schools: Cesare Beccaria, Jeremy Bentham, and Cesare Lombroso. Other issues include Issue 2: Biology and Criminality and Issue 3: Classical and Neoclassical Criminology.
