Sex Criminals Vol. 1
Sex Criminals Vol. 1 | Matt Fraction
Collects SEX CRIMINALS #1-5! Suzie's just a regular gal with an irregular gift: when she has sex, she stops time. One day she meets Jon and it turns out he has the same ability. And sooner or later they get around to using their gifts to do what we'd ALL do: rob a couple banks. A bawdy and brazen sex comedy for comics begins here!

I thought this was an interesting concept. I didn't always love the characters but the colors were pretty and I liked that they're trying to save a library.

Ummm. This comic is totally insane! Full of sex humor and snark. And bank robbery! Don‘t read on the bus to work.

Interesting take on a scifi graphic novel. Its interesting but at the same time a little ehh. The back and forth is a little confusing at times. But interesting enough.

Reading Sex Criminals at the OB/GYN feels subversive and right. Also, this would be a great tattoo. 😍

💋💋💋 This comic was ok. I liked the premise but the execution didn't work very well for me.

Zelma I had similar feelings about it. It was an interesting concept but I wasn‘t drawn to read further in the series. 12mo
Foxyfictionista @Zelma yeah, that's how I felt. Maybe it was trying to be too edgy. I don't know. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it. 12mo
Squidapus Like you said, an interesting idea that it never went anywhere interesting with 12mo
Foxyfictionista @Squidapus A shame really. Ah well. On to the next thing. 😃 12mo

I was expecting to really like this, but actually I was only so-so on it. I‘m not sure what didn‘t click for me - I‘m used to the first volumes of graphic novels setting up a lot of stuff and then not resolving it, so it can‘t be that, but it just left me a bit nonplussed.

Zelma I found this just ok as well. Not interested enough to continue on to Vol. 2. 1y
Verity @Zelma totally agree. Not bothering with part 2. 1y

Okay I only chose to read this because Patrick Rothfuss gave it a great review. Graphic novels aren‘t usually my thing. That said, this is hilarious.

Susie accidentally finds out that when she has orgasms, time stops. She‘s frustrated to learn this doesn‘t happen for most people. When she finally meets someone with the same, uh, talent? Things get really funny.

1 down for #4in48readathon. @Syndelle777

About: something magical/supernatural happens when the height of pleasure is reached. But what if this new plane of existence is used to...rob banks?? 🤣🤣🤣

NOT for the prude readers. But if you‘re okay with sex stuff, then this series is quite hilarious 🤣🤣🤣

Deadpool - the comics (at least those I've read), well they're not great tbh, but that movie sure was fun! Plus it's Ryan Reynolds.
Sex Criminals - I love this series! But it took a bit of convincing... I mean, come on, a girl who stops time when she has sex meets a guy who can do the same?? But yes, read it!
A Bollywood Affair - cheesy damsel in distress/child bride plot. Cured my #bookhangover though!

Vol 1-3 These were a fun read. About a group of people especially a couple, who can freeze time when they orgasm. I like Suzie's quest to save the library. Some serious issues are brought up.

6th book/1st graphic novel of #24in48. Two people who can stop time with their orgasms find each other and team up to have sex and rob banks. It's as creative and outrageous as it sounds, exploring themes like loneliness, whether the end justifies the means, and (obviously) sexuality. I probably ruined my eyesight a little trying to read the tiny text of the many jokes and gems hidden in the background art, but it was worth it. One qualm: 👇🏾

BookNerdBritt I did not like that this book perpetuates the double standard that a straight girl can fool around with a girl and she's just "experimenting" but a straight guy fools around with a guy and HOLY SHIT IT'S SUCH A BIG DEAL. ? 3y

So this graphic novel is fun but has a weird premise. The characters are criminals who can stop time when they have sex. They use this time to rob banks. It's well drawn and the story is interesting. #octphotochallenge #comicgraphicnovel

LauraBeth There was a Nicholson Baker book out a few years ago where the character would stop time and have sex - The Fermata 3y

For all its more irreverent and fantastical elements, at its heart, Sex Criminals is a refreshingly honest look at the reality of love and sexual exploration: anticlimactic first times, the woeful inadequacy of sex education, and ultimately how magical and important sex can become when you finally find someone you click with. Powerful stuff in a fun package, masterfully done.

So much fun to read!! In case you haven't heard of it, they have the ability to freeze time when they orgasm. She works in a library and they're pretty much robbing banks (that is having sex, freezing time, then robbing the bank) in a bid to save her library.
